Come join us for healthy, fun, and educational discussions on all matters related to firearms including shooting for sport and shooting for self-defense.
We usually meet once a month and go to the range (Rink's Gun & Sport in Lockport) and then for some food afterwards.
Matt, one of the organizers, is an NRA-certified instructor and is happy to offer advice and answer questions pertaining to how to better handle a firearm.
If you are interested in a firearms course please contact me directly by phone or email for class availability. I no longer accept rsvp through the meet up due to no-shows and last minute cancellations. Mattinsightdefense@gmail.com 708-207-3636 Thank you
