Membership Meeting July 6, 2021 at 7:30pm


A quick note to let you know, the club is re-opening.  The Club house is now open to members only.  This gives you access to the building with restrooms, the indoor range and easier access to the attendant.  We will open the building for the general public sometime around mid-July.  The ranges are now back to full capacity.

We will begin holding our regular monthly members meetings starting with July 6, 2021, at 7:30pm.  I hope to see you there.  We will be discussing many of the changes which have taken place over the past year. Please plan to attend. Should you have any questions please feel free to call me at 209-204-2510 or e-mail me at


Range Safety Officer Class Scheduled: April 24, 2021


Basic common-sense rules supervised by Range Safety Officers make our shooting sport one of the safest hobbies. To help more of our members join that elite group Manteca Sportsman Inc. is sponsoring another official NRA RSO certification class on April 24.

NRA Instructor, Club member and Chief Range Safety Officer Richard “Dick” Reizner will lead the class sharing his 60 plus years of shooting experience. Dick said, “While the information the class provides is important, the RSO’s attitude in passing it on is what really makes the range safe for shooters.”

The session will be held in the Old Clubhouse on Saturday, April 24, 2021 from 9am-6pm.

MSI Members: $35*
Non-Members: $50

*For MSI Members, the $35 will be refunded after you volunteer 12 hours as a RSO on either the rifle or pistol range (or both).

Registration forms are available at the range desk.

For further information, contact Dick at (408) 828-3555 or

Two Rivers Posse – Feb 6, 2021

Special thanks to Dakota Gwen for help with posting the scores.  (Actually it was more just doing it than helping!)
19 shooters started a chilly morning that turned into a beautiful day.  Six posse members heard a ‘Clang” for every “Bang.”  Molly Magoo (also top gun for the match!), J.W. Trader, Dragon, Shenandoah, Sintree TuLait and Revered Barry M. Deep.  Speaking of Reverend Deep, it was good to see him, Blind Faith (Mrs. Deep) and Dakota Gwen return to riding with the Posse after long absences.  Welcome back!
Our next match will be February 28.  Hope to see you all there.

Two Rivers Posse – Jan 24, 2021

No rain but a chilly morning greeted our 22 shooters.  Rum Walker had the best time and a clean match, along with J.W. (Birthday Boy) Trader, Wobblin’ Bob, Sintree TuLait, Bobcat Bill, Twisted Dog and Harry Morris.  It was an “Old Guys Rule” day as of the seven clean shooters, two were Silver Seniors, two were Elder Statesmen, one Cattle Barron, one Grand Patron (Way to go Harry Morse!) and one youngster (49er) snuck in.
Our condolences to Patch, whose father passed away during the week.  Our thought and prayers are with you
Our next match is Saturday after next, February 6th.  Hope to see you there.

Wild Bunch – Jan. 3, 2021

Howdy all,
We had 8 brave folks that fought through the fog to get to the range today and shoot Wild Bunch. Good stages by Wolf Taylor and as usual, a fun time was had by all.
Congrats to Gopher Broke for winning the match.
Again, a huge thank you to everyone who pitched in to help move targets yesterday and today to clear the range. All the help was greatly appreciated.
Our next Wild Bunch match will be Feb 7th.

Two Rivers Posse – Jan. 2, 2021

Attached are the scores from our first match of 2021.
In spite of a chilly morning, we had 19 competitors, with Wolf Taylor and Molly Magoo as the top men’s and women’s shooters respectively.  J.W. Trader, Dragon and Bobcat Bill (returning after a long absence) were the only Cowboys to earn Clean Match pins.  The full rainbow at day-break was good sign for them.
Special thanks to Bobcat Bill, Dakota Gwen, Dragon, J.W. Trader, Molly Magoo and Rum Walker for their help in setting up today’s match and to all who helped move steel after match to accommodate next weekend’s Freeze Arse Rendezvous Trail Walk Match.
Our next match is scheduled for January 24th.  Hope to see you all then.
