Welcome to the Mendon Conservation League!
Our club was formed by a group of local men looking for a place to shoot together. Founded in 1956 and formally incorporated in 1961, membership rose to 40. A modest club house was built around 1957 and expanded in 1986 with the addition of a large front porch. Formal shooting forms have been added to the skeet and trap fields. Today with a membership well over 250 and "espirit de corps" second to none, the Mendon Conservation League will continue to be one of the best clubs in the area…

2. Elimination of the Probationary class of membership.
3. Change in the size of the quorum for meetings.
4. The addition of Constitutional changes that were approved in the past, but never entered into the Constitution document.

We generally have between 14 and 24 people, but not every one stays for lunch. We also don't know whats on the menu untill that very day. We encourage anyone interested in the club and our activities to visit then.
Example from 2/22/2012:
Today we had a nice fish lunch, provided by Winston Smith. This being Ash Wednesday he deemed it appropriate and just $2.00. Brownies for desert, you just can't beat it-eh. 18 shooters enjoyed the morning sunshine, but the targets proved elusive with the deep shadows on the field.

NYS Bill A8108-2013/S4017-2013 Establishes a statewide database to maintain and track coded ammunition and establishing penalties for individuals who violate such provisions.
Read it. It requires id stamping on the bullet base and database tracking for pistol and rifle calibers.
* It adds an ammo tax
* I do not see an exemption for .22
* I do not see an exemption for reloading
* You must dispose of uncoded ammunition within 1 year (3 years if you have a hunting license)
* You may not have more than 100 rounds of uncoded ammunition after 1 year (even with a hunting liceense?)
We used to think these crazy bills would never get through the NYS Senate - and then SAFE happened!
