Winter Rifle Matches
Our Sunday morning Winter Rifle Matches will be starting up December 4th and run through the end of March - 9-11am at the Lower Range. Come on down before or after church!
It's any rifle/any sights or scope, 20 shots in 20 minutes. We shoot out the windows of our nice woodstove-heated range house at SR-1 targets at 100 yards, in the standing position. Cost $5.
This is a great way to improve your marksmanship skills for hunting, competition, or just to be "well regulated." Our crack shots can help you to first get 'em all on the paper, then all in the bullseye, then all on the X-ring!
All are welcome - grab your rifle & come on down...any rifle you have is fine!
Roger has ammo for you in the Clubhouse Gunshop.

Additionally, we'll be able to take orders for any and all Mass compliant firearms!
So come on up Saturdays from 2 to 4 and Sundays 8 to Noon.
The Gun Shop is open to the public so bring your friends.
Click here for the Gun Shop or above in the menu bar and check out what's on hand for firearms and supplies!
Plate Rack Locks have changed as of Sunday, 2/20/22!
New keys are on sale at The Gun Shop on Sunday mornings.
Price of the keys is now $35.00 for the remainder of the year.
The Texas Stars are now available if you have a plate rack key. Be sure to use the paddles from the box on the right for the small .22 star on the right of the range.
Use the larger paddles in the box on the left for the propeller for larger centerfire calibers.
You will ruin the smaller .22 paddles if you hit them with centerfire calibers.
Keys are selling quick so come on up and get yours.

Renew or Become an LSA Member ! As an existing member you can login to your member account at anytime to pay your renewal invoice online. If you are having difficulty logging in or your account doesn't get marked as paid automatically, please contact Dave Kistler at firstname.lastname@example.org to help you get your account updated.
You can also join online by clicking on Members here or in the top Menu.
Dues are as follows - Regular Member dues are $100, Seniors and Juniors dues are $50 and Kids dues are $10. The initiation fee for new members is $35.
ATTENTION: NOT getting your LSA email or our newsletter online?Be sure to check your Junk email and also please update your email in your LSA member account if you've changed it recently. We had approximately 20 members who did not receive a 2021 renewal invoice because the email address in their member record was no longer valid.
ATTENTION: NEW KEYS We’ve decided to hold off on changing the Rifle Range gate key until we find out when the new automatic gate operator will be up and running. So for now, your key from last year will continue to open the gate, the range house and the member side of the shed.
We’ll let you know if and when we’re going to change out the gate key.
In the mean time, if you need keys:
House/shed keys are $3.00 and plate rack keys are $35.00 for the remainder of this year.
Range keys are available through the gun shop or Dave Kistler.
Plate Rack keys will be available at the gun shop or through Roger Lafleur or Dave Kistler.
Remember the plate rack key will work for the 2 centerfire racks as well as for the 2 rimfire racks!
In addition we’ll be adding two Texas Stars for you entertainment!
Members who don’t want to purchase a key can still use the plate racks on Sunday mornings for $5.00. Pay the on-duty RSO to unlock them.
Non-members may use them on Sunday mornings for $10.00.
The great thing about the plate racks is, you don't have to bring targets to the range, you don't have to wait for the green flag to check your targets and you get that instant, yet satisfying sound of the target being knocked over! Almost like shooting trap or skeet except with a handgun! Come on down to the range, bring your favorite (non-magnum) handgun and give it a whirl. You can also use .22 rifles if you don't have a handgun.
Resetting your Member passwordRecently several members have had problems with resetting their member passwords.
The “problem” most of the time is that they haven’t used the whole password that is returned from the system.
The temporary password will be a combination of letters and numbers. They are case sensitive so be sure to type them in exactly as shown in the email that the system sends you. Every time you reset the password, you must use the new one that the system sends you.
Don’t forget to change the password once you log in.
Also, when you log into your account you will also see your membership card if your account is paid up to date. You may also print this card if you want to laminate it. If you want it down to wallet size, you will have to try different size settings until you get it to the size you want.
