I AM A CURRENT MEMBER, AND THE ATTITUDE OF THE MAJORITY ON THE BOARD IS, IF IT'S NOT SHOTGUN THEN IT'S NO GUN. THEIR COMPLAINT IS PEOPLE FAST FIRING AT POSSIBLE NO TARGET IN FRONT OF THEM AND/OR BLASTING TO SMITHERINGS THE WOODEN TARGET FRAMES. SO WHATS TO STOP YOU FROM LOADING 10 ROUNDS IN A 16 ROUND MAG AND FIRING THEM IN 2 SECONDS ? NOTHING. THEY HAVE ACCOMPHISHED NOTHING EXCEPT PISSING MEMBERS OFF. SOME SAY THEY ARE TRYING TO SHUT THE CLUB DOWN, I AM STARTING TO BELIEVE IT. SPREAD THE WORD, SHOW UP ENMASS AND VOTE TO REPEAL THAT RULE.

I always thought the rod and gun was just a VFW for non military folks, a place to tell war stories and gossip about your neighbors while eating cheap food.

Every club I have ever been involved in has this issue.
10% of the membership do 90% of the work.

If you want to effect change: Gather like minded members and get them elected to the board, have them show up for every meeting and vote as a group to effect the changes.

Anyone know why they passed that rule? Anyone actually know the facts?

Seems to me the reasons a majorityof those present voted that way is needed before all the labeling and condemnation and insults are tossed around.

Gun Clubs are not a Democracy..?

They are run by an Elected Board of Directors...

The Board of Directors makes the rules that the members have to follow...

Go to all the meetings, go to all of the work parties, go to all their fund-raisers, then get Elected to the Board...

Not at North American. The members present vote on new rules that they themselves come up with. The board isn't even allowed to vote on such matters.

You would be wrong about that. It's a great club for the most part. The food is pretty good too. It's not gourmet but it's enjoyable with a beer.
