<![CDATA[Proposed rule making - fish stocking]]>Tue, 16 Aug 2022 02:34:11 GMThttp://parissportsmen.com/psc-blog/proposed-rule-making-fish-stockingBelow is correspondence we received from Laurel Hill Trout Farm. They are currently our "go to" for PSC Lake stocking. They believe that a new proposed rule from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission will make it very hard for hatcheries to stock in Pennsylvania.

They feel that the proposed rule for testing water quality lacks transparency and that the process is arbitrary with very little chance of any type of appeal to PFBC.

Deadline for comments is Thursday, August 18, so please take a look and decide if you would like to comment use the links below for more info:

Link for Overview of regulatory change
Go directly to this page to comment

If you are against this new regulation and would like to comment in addition to casting your vote, below are suggestions from Laurel Hills:
1. It grants too broad of power to staff at PFBC to regulate without established rules defining the boundaries of that power, public access to those boundaries, required time frame, or oversight by Commissioners.
2. It creates a situation of impossible compliance causing current hatcheries to stop stocking or to break regulations.
3.It creates additional barriers to those wanting to stock fish in PA.


We are not suggesting voting one way or the other, but thought you would like to know of upcoming changes as they may affect our stocking schedules and/or suppliers.

<![CDATA[CCW and Home Defense Instruction]]>Sun, 27 Mar 2022 04:00:00 GMThttp://parissportsmen.com/psc-blog/ccw-and-home-defense-instruction
Concealed Carry and Home Defense Class at PSC
This class is scheduled for May 7, 2022

Did you know that if you just discharge your weapon into the air to scare an individual, you can be charged with attempted murder? You can learn more about this, proper shooting techniques, and the mindset that you need to have to deal with a violent encounter and much more.

You want safety and security for your family, but as a responsibly armed American, you realize that means much more than just owning a gun. With that thought in mind, PSC member Jay Scopel, a certified USCCA Conceal Carry Instructor, will be conducting a Concealed Carry & Home Defense Fundamentals course at the club. Even if you are not considering applying for a CCW permit in your state, this is a comprehensive course for anyone considering owning, carrying and/or having a firearm in their possession for self-defense. This class is open to PSC members and the public, and again, is even for those who are not considering carrying a firearm, but are considering having one in their home for protection.

As many of you know, our club has a relationship with the USCCA and as a club member in good standing, you can receive a discount on your monthly USCCA membership. A USCCA Membership brings you industry-leading education, training & the trusted legal protection you may need to protect your family with confidence.

The USCCA is dedicated to building safer communities by providing lifesaving training and resources to those in need.

There will be a limit of 20 students. There is a fee for this class, and as you can see by the curriculum below, you must be available at least 8 hours that day - as there will be approximately 6 hours of class time and 2 hours range time. Time for lunch will be allotted, but you must bring your own.
Date:  May 7, 2022
Location: Colliers Sportsman Club

Times:  9:00 am - 5:00 pm
