A Few Words From Ed

July is here and so is summer. What an exciting time around CTS. It is great to have so much to look forward to in the next few weeks. 

I must begin this newsletter with a few words about our 10th annual August 14th Customer/Community appreciation day. We are so proud of what this event has provided the community over the years. Now the challenge is to be bigger, better, and more giving to this awesome community and our three primary benefactors this year.

Again, this year's event will support the Post Falls Food Bank, Vitalant Blood Bank, and the USMC Toys for Tots program. How can we go wrong supporting these agencies?
Here's our dilemma. Last year overloaded the blood mobile to the point they turned away donors. This year they are sending three blood mobiles. That means we need to meet the challenge and overload all three of these units this year. They say it can't be done, I say we can. The shooting community can do it! Please sign up and make an appointment to give on August 14th. See below for more details.

Don't miss the Hot Shot Kids Fun Shoots that we are offering throughout the summer. This is a great opportunity to spend time with a young shooter or shooter want to be. PJ is leading the charge and he guarantees an educational and fun experience for both adults and the kids. See the fun shoot section below for more info.

Reminder, we are using Facebook exclusively to announce our One Day Flash Sale items every week.  We will continue to reward our loyal Facebook guests by using Facebook exclusively to announce the arrival of the hard to get very high demand firearms. These firearms will of course be offered first come first served for as long as supply lasts.

We would like to increase the use of our Selfie Wall designed for you to take a pic with your target, friends, or new purchase. Anyone who posts a selfie on Facebook and mentions Center Target Sports will be put in a drawing for a gift bag given out at the Customer Appreciation Day. Contest begins July 1st.

In addition to FREE shooting and children's prizes we will once again have free hot dogs. Mark your calendars for Aug 14th, 9am-2pm

Be Safe .....Ed

Notes from Peggy:
Since we were closed on July 4th. IDPA will be the 2nd and 3rd Sundays in July.

Save the date! Customer appreciation day. August 14th. 9am-2pm.

If you're getting unwanted "interested in" emails from us, please let us know and we'll take you off the list. Just reply to any email from us saying "take me off this list" and we'll do it instantly.

If the website shows a class is full, sometimes it has 1 or 2 spaces still available. We short the website because there is a lag time in getting those registrations and we do not want to overbook the class. You can call the range and check if the class is indeed full. Also, we find last minute cancellations happen. So if you see a class date that works for you, put it on your schedule and give us a call 1 or 2 days prior to the class. You may find that there is a last minute opening.

A reminder that retakes need to call in to the range to sign up. The website does NOT recognize a retake nor does it recognize class credit...please call us.

Yes, we are still taking toiletries and phone donations for the women's shelter. Thank you to all of you who give.

We Are Again Renting Some Guns So You Can Try Before You Buy...

We are happy to announce that beginning July first, we will be able to rent 9MM and .40S&W firearms!

Rentals still must only be used with our ammo. Ammo is still in short supply but we have been able to get enough to support our rental program. 380 ammo is not yet available but we continue to try and get enough in.
Each customer who rents a firearm caliber can purchase and shoot one box of ammo. 

Thanks for understanding. We'll continue to rent while supplies last.
KIDS‘ HOT SHOT FUN SHOOT
Center Target Sports reintroduces the KIDS HOT SHOT FUN SHOOT starting July 14TH & 28TH, 2021, from 5 to 7 pm. Look for the August dates on the August calendar.

This is a friendly competition between kids (7-15 yrs. old) and their parents, grandparents or guardians. It might be (slightly?) weighted in favor of the kids, but based on past experience, the competition is anywhere from slight to fierce! It is an opportunity for the kids to be exposed to learning firearms safety, and the experience of firing a .22 pistol and rifle. All with a Range Safety Officer teaching your child safety, and proper firearms handling in a fun, learning atmosphere.

The cost is $25 each kid, the adult shoots for free. Center Target Sports provides the ammo, firearms and targets, you will need to provide eye and ear protection. Each kid will need to have a youth waiver signed by their parents and sign range rules, and each adult will need to make sure their range rules and waiver are up to date. Once you sign your paperwork it is good for 2 years. You must sign up in advance in person or by calling Center Target Sports. If you need to fill out paperwork, please show up 30 minutes prior to the start of the event so you have time to finish your paperwork before we start.
Grandkids Coming to Visit this summer?

Reminder if you have children under 21 coming to visit you and you wish to bring them to the range we will need permission from a parent or guardian for them to shoot with you. A signed note with a copy of the parent's driver's license if they are from out of town will do so we can match the signatures. You will then need to fill out the waiver for the child when you come in.

Tell Me About the REQUIRED Proficiency Test for Def Handgun 1

To sign up for Def HG 1, you must complete a 10 minute proficiency test. We offer this test every other Friday at 9am. To take this test, just call the range to get on the list. This test supports our ultimate goal to balance the student experience and make the classes as comprehensive as possible.

 To take a required proficiency test please bring the below listed equipment:

  • Firearm and strong side OWB holster
  • 3 magazines with two mag pouches
  • Eye and Ear Protection

No proficiency test is needed to retake a class you've already attended.
Hope this helps everyone understand the process.

Speaking of Classes and Student Abilities.

I wanted to talk about the CCW qualification. Every listing of our CCW class clearly delivers the message that students must know how to shoot and handle their firearm. CCW is not a "how to shoot class". Students must be able to load, handle and shoot their firearm safely. We are constantly experiencing students that do not know how to load their handgun and can not accurately shoot their gun well enough to hit a man sized target out to 30 feet. Would you take your driver’s license test without taking Driver’s Ed or ever driving a car?

During the qualification process we can no longer take the time to work one on one with students that can not shoot safely or accurately on their own. Beginning immediately, if we see a student struggling with their firearm ability we will take them off the firing line and they can return at a later date to qualify. They will not receive the certificate or application paperwork until they qualify.

Thanks for understanding but safety and courtesy to the other students in the class are paramount.

Basic Pistol II vs. Repeating Basic Pistol
We created Basic Pistol II at the request of our former Lead Instructor Ken Cramer. Ken accurately saw a need for a venue that provided more trigger time to the basic student that would allow their skills to more rapidly improve.
 
The result of his thinking was the development of Basic Pistol II which is designed to be almost entirely conducted on the range. That's why the prerequisite of Basic Pistol is important.

If you completed Basic Pistol but want more trigger time to refine your shooting skills with an instructor present, the Basic Pistol II class will allow you to grow leaps and bounds, more than if you merely repeated Basic Pistol. Of course when you complete Basic Pistol II you can repeat that course as often as you like! Now you are really learning and improving your skills.

Starting in May we're offering a Basic Pistol 2 re-takes only class. This class is for those who've taken Basic Pistol 2 already. It's free, but you have to CALL the range to sign up. 208-773-2331.
Do You Own A Gun You Just Don't Use? We can help you sell it.
Firearms are flying out of our consignment case. People are interested in our gently used inventory. So this is a great time to let us help you sell your firearm. Shot guns and handguns both are in high demand.

Gunsmith Corner
 All this heat has boiled some old knowledge to the surface of my mind. Get next to your AC with a cool beverage and enjoy the ride.
While loading propellants in general have gotten more stable over the last few years it is important to remember that extreme heat and cold can have serious effects on ammunition and firearms. The later much less than the former. 

Several decades back I loaded some 243 ammo with my favorite load using a 75 grain varmit bullet. I shot hundreds of these and they always performed well. I was loading in preparation for a trip to southern Utah to hunt rock chucks and prairie dogs. It was a hot weekend with temperatures into the hundreds and plenty of targets. In the middle of Saturday afternoon I fired a round that sounded and felt different. Upon inspecting the rifle I found the case was blown in half with the front portion still in the chamber. The rest was smeared around the bolt and driven into the firing pin hole. We literally had to beat the bolt open with a wood block and hammer. My weekend hunt ended then and there. I headed home with my broken rifle and a thousand questions.

I took both to an experienced gunsmith friend and related my tale of woe. He asked where the ammo had been kept while shooting. I said mine had just been sitting on the tailgate of my truck. Also there were times that rounds were on the portable bench or in the magazine on the bench. Al grinned and said you were using brand x powder as usual and it burns very fast when heated. The round that blew up in the gun would have been fine in my home climate of 80 degrees or less, but in the bright sun and 100 degree plus heat the pressure went up exponentially. The rifle and I both survived the ordeal and I spent a bunch of time studying to fully understand my lesson. It turns out that a new ball powder that I was using was heat sensitive. The information was difficult for me to dig up in my pre-internet days but the lesson is still well remembered. The load was pushing the outer limits of sanity. (I don’t visit that realm anymore.) Hot load coupled with high heat and the sensitive powder was the perfect storm.

Even factory ammunition can be adversely affected by high temperatures. It might not reach the catastrophic level that I did but it could create problems. Keep ammo shaded and cool as much as possible. Always be cognizant of changes in the sound and feel of your fire arm. Never disregard that hunch that something doesn’t feel right.

Keep cool, keep shooting and be happy.

This Month's Shooting/Safety Tip

low-light
What Makes You a Low-Light Winner ?
I recently had discussions with two gentlemen, one LE officer and one civilian. Both men had potentially life ending situations in low-light circumstances. It amazed me how unprepared they both were for fighting in the dark.

What follows is a training tip previously published here about 6 years ago.  It addresses some of the issues both men expressed during our conversation. I believe many of you may benefit from this info as well. I hope it helps.
 
Recently there seems to be more and more written, discussed, and even advertised about working under low-light conditions. Maybe I am just more sensitive to these issues as this is a subject that I am passionate about and compelled to learn more. Through research, experimentation, and clinical study I am constantly looking for answers.
 
My purpose in this article pertains to how I believe you can immediately impact your low-light survivability. Sadly, many firearms instructors spend most of their time teaching the popular flashlight techniques that have been around forever. That's OK to a point.  Flashlight techniques are important and they need to be understood. However, there is more to operating in the night than knowing how to hold a flashlight.  
 
Develop an Understanding
 
I believe you need to develop greater understanding of the physiological and psychological aspects you will encounter while under stress in the dark. A comprehensive understanding of these factors will allow you to select and train in the techniques that work for your particular environment and personal limitations or capabilities. You need to understand that these are factors that affect everyone who operates in a low-light environment good guys and bad guys alike. Developing the knowledge, tools, tactics, and techniques to "Rule the Night" and not merely exist in it could save your life. 
 
A great place to start to improve your low-light survivability is by studying the Human Eye Physiology, Affects of Body Alarm Response (BAR) in the dark, and the low-light skills of Visual Patience, and don't overlook the importance of using your Light Source as a Control Device.  
 
Physiology
 
At a minimum, learn the function of the eye's Rods and Cones. Understand how the Cones during day time, provide us with color and detail. In the dark the Rods take over and allow us to see movement rather than fine detail. Knowing where the Rods and Cones are located will reinforce why off-center viewing is so critical at night. Did you know that the amount of light we need to see at night doubles every 13 years?   
 
Psychological
 
We need to understand that in reduced light, our mind will try to fill in what our eyes can't see. This becomes even more difficult to manage under stressful conditions. We have all heard instructors talk about Fight or Flight Response. Lately we are hearing the term Body Alarm Response (BAR) in the place of Fight or Flight. The BAR is the body's response to the high stress of a life threatening attack situation. Add the psychological & physiological changes that are magnified by the lack of light and the Low-Light BAR can be the most severe you will ever experience. 
 
"Tunnel Vision" or "Perceptual Narrowing" can be explained by the physiological and psychological changes that accompany the BAR. As humans we have an innate tendency to narrow attention upon a threat during extreme stress. 
  
Visual Patience
 
Visual patience is a term I use to describe the act of leaving your light on long enough to identify what you are looking at. Emotions of the fight and visual patience are often mixed or confused when we attempt to analyze the high stress environment of a gun fight.   
 
Control With Light
 
I believe here is where you can tremendously improve your ability to win at night. You should learn to use light to control the bad guy. How do you use light as a force option? I bet I've got you wondering now.  By placing the hot spot of your light in your opponent's eyes, you reduce his ability to see you clearly and mount any type of attack as you approach. He is unable to assess your physical conditioning, your size, determine if you are alone, look for an escape route, or look for cover, just to mention a few advantages. 
 

If you have a quality light source, and you know how to use it, you can gain the advantages as stated above every time you confront a suspect in a diminished light environment.  
 
I believe the single most important thing you can do to improve your survivability is to improve your understanding of operating in the low-light environment. Never before, have we had the tools, access to the knowledge and clinical research available to us to truly "Rule the Night".
