What I’ve Been Doing in My Spare Time

The local rifle and pistol club that I belong to was looking for some new ideas for their web site.  Since I have a bit of experience with operating web sites, I volunteered to have a stab at it.  Tonight, this is what I’ll be presenting to our board.  Hopefully they’ll like it.  It’s served off WordPress, same as this blog.

More rifle and pistol clubs need a healthy web presence.  There’s plenty of crap out there about people misusing guns, so it’s worthwhile to have live examples of people having fun and using them responsibly.  I’m hoping WordPress is going to be easier for match directors and club leaders to update, so our web site will give the impression of an active, fun shooting club.

    ‘No Dogs allowed on FTRPA property, except service animals’

    Uhm, has that come up?

  2. Sebastian says:

    There’s probably a story behind it. But it’s a 1100 member club, so I’m sure at one point they allowed dogs, and someone let their dog crap on the trap field, and someone else stepped in it… etc.

  3. Sebastian says:

    Of course, I would also imagine a dog getting away from you and running downrange could be a problem.

  4. SayUncle says:

    but how many service animals would you think would make it to a range? I don’t imagine that blind are, well, good shots.

    The web page is nicely done.

    Didn’t some guy make a special gun sight for blind hunters? Something where the guy with them could let them know that they were on target?

    No icky girls on that home page. The club wouldn’t want to attract that kind of crowd.

    Nice work! :-) We recently re-did our website too, and we also started-up what has turned into an even more active club forum for members to share experience, ask questions, and talk about upcoming events.

    Thanks T-Bolt, I’ll have to make sure George posts some pics of Phil’s wife – and also the MILFS who show up on Juniors day… Damn this IS California after all…

    We had a couple blind shooters that frequented CCA. One of them made the news by qualifying for his toter’s permit…

    Website looks very good! One suggestion: add some sort of graphical divider (vertical bar, etc.) between the 2A and PA right to bear arms. They sort of run into each other as is.

    I also like the choice of the B&W NRA logo so as not to break the overall color scheme. But do they have a higher resolution image available? Everything else on the page looks clean & crisp, save for some pixelation in that NRA logo.

    Sebastian will add pictures with females when he gets them. This being a demo, he only had a couple of photos to work with. Should they approve the site, I’m quite sure that more pictures will be included.

  12. XD-TKE says:

    Very nice. I’s sure they will like it. One suggestion. Check the banner graphics for the coat of arms. It only showed the top part in the header not lower whick I assume was to overlay the picture.

    A very good friend of mine is a paraplegic and confined to a wheelchair. She competed on the US Para-Olympic air rifle team, oh… late ’80’s or so IIRC. Later in the ’90’s she had a service dog specifically trained to help her. The dog would pick up items she had dropped, help her up inclines, etc. Service dogs are not just for the blind. :0)

    Almost forgot…

    The site looks great, Sebastian. Clean, easy to follow. Well done.
