    I had a great time. Excellent instructor, & the other members made it a lot of fun (probably the most fun I could possibly have while trying to obey a list of strict rules I've never had to apply before). And, jeez, the weather was perfect too.

    The first and definitely not the last time I will shot a gun. It was a great experience. Thanks Anna for setting this up and getting an amazing instructor!

    Hi all! I've shot trap many times before and I'm excited to meet the group. This will be my first meetup with this group! I'm driving from San Jose if anyone wants to carpool.

    Buck is coming all of the way from the Livermore area. How many people would be interested in driving out that way IF I could schedule another one? Otherwise, we are planning a hunter safety class with him some time in the future.

    I've never used a rifle before so I'd like to see how this goes before committing to more.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
