2008 Hunter Sight-in Day Open to the N.H. PublicNashua Fish and Game Association (NFGA) will host a “Hunter Sight-In Day” event on our club grounds at Al Paul Lane, Merrimack, NH on Saturday, October 18, 2008, from 10 AM to 5 PM.  It will be open to the public.  The purpose of this sight-in day is to provide area hunters with a safe and organized place to verify and adjust the accuracy of their rifle/shotgun/handgun prior to taking to the field this hunting season.

Hunter turnout was great the last two years.  We received a lot of positive feedback from participants about the available facilities and assistance provided by NFGA members.

We ask that each participant check the operation of their firearm and have any questionable equipment checked by a gunsmith prior to bringing it to the NFGA range.  We will have Range Officers available to ensure safe operation of the range and to assist with sight-in as needed, however they are not authorized to perform maintenance or repair.  In addition to a serviceable firearm, shooters must bring their own ammunition for that firearm.  It is recommended that you bring the same ammunition for sight-in that you will use while hunting.  If you have a bench rest or spotting scope that you wish to use, bring it with you. 

Shooting positions are available at 25, 50, 100, 200 and 300 yards.  Non-members will be charged a $5 fee for each firearm that is sighted-in.  An additional $5 fee may be charged for bore sighting or assistance to install/align scopes.   To ensure all interested persons get their chance, each shooter will be allowed 25 rounds (your ammo) or setup time plus 40 minutes of firing time.

NFGA membership information will be available at the range or may be obtained on our web site www.nfga.org.  Sight-in fees can be deducted from the membership initiation fee if a shooter joins NFGA within one month of the sight-in day.

Interested hunters can contact Nashua Fish and Game Association range governor at 603-424-2824 or E-mail us at fowlerrange [at] nfga [dot] org to sign-up for NFGA Sight-In Day and for directions.  Directions to the club grounds are also available on our web site, www.nfga.org.
