This is NOT the web site for Charlotte Rifle and Pistol Club, Inc. of Stallings/Waxhaw, NC. Their web site of over a decade is here at www.cr-pc.org.

This web site is a watchdog site of which the subject is Charlotte Rifle and Pistol Club, Inc. of Stallings/Waxhaw, NC. This is not a commercial site. This is a free speech dessenter site.

The purpose of this web site is to make the community aware of dangerous safety issues relating to Charlotte Rifle and Pistol Club (CRPC) of Waxhaw, North Carolina. The materials used here document a small precentage of dangerous issues with this organization including containment of deadly bullets; and environmental disregard.

CRPC has outgrown the community, or better said the community has grown around CRPC to the point that it is no longer safe to shoot high powered weapons within yards of homes, businesses and directly toward the town of Marvin. The Marvin city limit is the north border of the Charlotte Rifle and Pistol Club property line. There are houses only a few yards from the CRPC property lines on multiple sides.

Combine 1300+ members, plus their guests and the general public and there are thousands of bullets being fired in the direction of Marvin's residents, playgournds, churchs and schools everyday (7 days a week). It is no secret at CRPC that bullets and even cannonballs have exited CRPC property. Luck has been with the community that no one has been injured or killed. There have however been gunshot wounds on CRPC property. Is this place just a huge party with guns? Does it represent a danger to the community?

The documentation is extensive relating to unsafe weapons handling at CRPC and questions raised from within the organization as to the statutory lawfulness of the operations. Charlotte Rifle and Pistol Club, rather than be good community citizens, has hired attorneys in attempt to squelch factual, truthful information that may be unflattering to them. What are they hiding? Why would they spend so much money to hide their bad behavior rather than make corrections or for the good of the community, MOVE? Their time has passed.

("over the berm" would be North into the Marvin community)

Terminal Velocity of a falling bullet?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terminal_velocity

Based on wind resistance, for example, the terminal velocity of a skydiver in a belly-to-earth (ie:face down) free-fall position is about 195 km/h (122 mph or 54 m/s).[2] This velocity is the asymptotic limiting value of the acceleration process, because the effective forces on the body balance each other more and more closely as the terminal velocity is approached. In this example, a speed of 50% of terminal velocity is reached after only about 3 seconds, while it takes 8 seconds to reach 90%, 15 seconds to reach 99% and so on.

Higher speeds can be attained if the skydiver pulls in his or her limbs (see also freeflying). In this case, the terminal velocity increases to about 320 km/h (200 mph or 90 m/s),[2] which is almost the terminal velocity of the Peregrine Falcon diving down on its prey.[3]

The same terminal velocity is reached for a typical .30-06 bullet dropping downwards—when it is returning to earth having been fired upwards, or dropped from a tower—according to a 1920 U.S. Army Ordnance study.[4]
