Washington State Legislature – GOAL Post

Posted January 6, 2017



The state legislative session convenes on Monday morning January 8. With the anti-gun party in control of both houses and the Governor’s mansion it could be a busy session for gun owners.




The Gun Owners Action League (GOAL) of WA distributes a weekly legislative update called the GOAL Post. These updates are posted on our web site on the Government Relations page. The first Goal Post for 2018 has been added. It is a good one to review in detail as it covers a lot of the ground work to understand the processes and available resources. Also check out the GOAL web site. There is a link at the top of the Government Relations page.

Be A Range Safety Officer

Posted January 4, 2018



Our Range Safety Officers help to make our rifle and pistol ranges safe for both club members and our public shooters. They’re all volunteers, and we always need more of them.




What does it take to be a Range Safety Officer? You have to be a club member and safe shooter yourself, deal effectively with people with a broad range of shooting skills, successfully complete the NRA’s Range Safety Officer course and be willing to work one or two four-hour shifts each month. We’ll train you and we’ll guide you until you’re comfortable with the job.


If supporting Poulsbo Sportsman Club by being a Range Safety Officer interests you, please contact me and I’ll show you what the job entails and answer your questions.

Afterhours Shooting Closed

Posted November 3, 2017


All after hours shooting on the rifle and pistol ranges closes effective November 5, 2017. This closure does not affect either the Thursday evening trap and 5 stand or the Thursday evening junior rifle practice. Also this closure does not affect our normal 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM open to the public hours. During this time, after hours gate cards with members access will be disabled.


After hours shooting on the 100 yard and 200 yard rifle ranges normally closes for the season with the end of daylight saving time. That is the case this year. Due to construction of our new baffles the target line lights on the 15 yard and 50 yard pistol ranges were removed and at this time they have not been replaced. This means after hours shooting on the 15 yard and 50 yard pistol ranges will also close with the end of daylight saving time.


After hours shooting is scheduled to open again on March 11, 2018. If we get the 15 yard pistol range lights replaced before then, after hours shooting on the 15 yard pistol range will reopen. After hours shooting on the 50 yard pistol range is closed for the season.
