Welcome to our beautiful and beloved club. Please help us keep it that way by picking up after yourself and taking your trash home with you.

You carried it in, so you carry it out.

The good folks who volunteer their time to mow should not have to stop and pick up debris that could damage the mower or otherwise be thrown by the mower.

Using our clubhouse and one pistol range at the Greene Rod and Gun Club, Rochester Personal Defense offers pistol training to upgrade your pistol permit. Upon completion of the class you will be able to visit the county clerks office with your certificate for completing the RPD class and file for an amendment/duplicate pistol permit to have the words such as “for target practice and for hunting” removed from your permit. You must surrender your original pistol permit with the restrictions printed on it. Some folks refer to this as “full carry” or “Concealed Carry” credentials. Others may refer this this as having the restrictions removed.

A friendly note from the Greene Rod and Gun Club board of directors to club members that are not paid students: During a class, consider the clubhouse to be open for access to the bathrooms and kitchen (to get a soda or ice tea) during an RPD classroom session. Please make minimal noise to minimize disruption to the class. In addition to setting up target stands, Mike will display a sign in the pistol range selected by RPD, so please do not use that particular range or disturb the setup. If shooting in one of the nearby ranges, especially a loud high power firearm, please no rapid fire since it becomes difficult for the instructors to communicate with the students during the live fire portion of the training. The best time to fire is when you hear the students firing.
