Quail and Dog Training Fields

With the quail and dog training fields as a new edition to the club, there are some rules that must be followed. You must be meet with Bob Woods, Jr. to go over the rules of the training grounds. You then will receive a permit for the year. You must have this displayed with your membership card while on the grounds. It you do not have this permit regardless of being a member, you will be asked to leave the fields. During the PGC hunting season, dog training MUST yield to hunters. This includes big and small game.

The MSCI Directors also made a decision concerning our quail. Under NO circumstances are you permitted to hunt or kill quail on MCSI property. This project is also regulated by the Pennsylvania Game Commission. Ultimately we are trying to repopulate various wildlife so they will thrive again. This is a project that our conservation committee is working on. We are also working on habitat for the wildlife in our area. Every fourth Sunday at noon the committee meets at the MSCI clubhouse. It is opened to all members. Please contact me with and questions at secretary@millvalesportsmens.com

The fundamental NRA rules for safe gun handling

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage.

2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
When holding a gun, rest your finger on the slide or frame of the gun. Until your sights are aligned on the target.

3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.
