What we're about

This group will be focusing on understanding guns in the household. I want to have speakers come out and help our members considering purchasing a new gun, getting a permit, and carrying concealed. With crime up, and resources down. I want to make sure people are well aware of their surroundings. I also would like to help people find a business that will sell what we need at a good price. With this group growing I would like to be able to negotiate better prices.

My first task is gaining some members who want to learn more about guns. Guns are not toys, kids should not have access to them, until they know how to use them with parental supervision.

We will be going to the range as a group, I plan on having one experienced shooter share a range with a beginner, this saves cost, and each member can learn and refresh their skills.

As a group, some members will have a gun others will not have. We can essentially rent that gun and pay that member for the ammo used. Of course the gun owner will help the member who wants to shoot it. We can play with this however you want to set it up.

Disgussing what steps are needed and proper places to obtain your Concealed Weapons Permit.

I also run

Learn Gun Safety, understand the reason why to carry a gun, understand where we can not go. I want to make sure we all have the fundamentals down. I am gearing this towards people that are new to guns. We can practice shoot a few guns if anyone wants to offer theirs. I understand with ammo in such high demand that members should pay for the rounds if they shoot someone else's gun.

Understand the liability that is also exposed by carrying a gun or having one in the household or on your person.

Understand how your home insurance policy will cover guns. (most companies only allow up to $2500 max towards guns)

Understand, carrying a gun in your vehicle is legal without a permit. What steps to take if you are pulled over. Keep the gun in plain sight. Give the officer the safety he/she deserves.
Many motorcyclists carry a firearm from what I understand so they need to know the full abilities and laws. Business owners who carry cash or other valuables, maybe they have a storefront that they want to protect.

Movie lovers may want to learn the real effects of what a gun can or can not do. Such as James Bond and his little pea shooter will not accurately hit anything from the distance he shoots from in several scenes.

Womens social groups may like the knowledge of gun ownership. I just recently had a client have her home invaded by three thugs. They broke into her home, beat her and her nephew up. There was blood all over the living room. If she would of had a firearm handy she might have made it without the after effects. I understand there is always a devils advocate. Having the knowledge will let you decide how you want to proceed.

If you don't know what a type 1, type 2, type 3 malfunction are, or you don't know how to do a tactical reload, this is the class for you. Many of us have been around guns for years but most have never had a professional course. This is cheap, fun, mini vaca, meet new people, train, and maybe gamble. This class is good for absolute beginners or people that think they are top notch. Their is always someone better than you. Never stop learning. This class does not involve any running and gunning. Come to this meeting to see why I have already had over 100 people join me. Front Sight has Zero sales pitches about their company, just training. Their are no upgrades when you get there. I bought a bunch of 4 day courses in bulk because I have 3700 members. I will go 5-7 times a year, or until my wife kills me. This is my vacation (with guns) This is a $2,000 class for $250 or Free if you bring 3 people. Or you can get lifetime classes for free but I can't discuss that in an email. Nothing is free, I will explain. Call me[masked] This event is for anyone who wants an awesome firearms training class. It's a mini vacation with firearms training. We are all traveling to Nevada. We are sharing gas, hotels, or carpooling together. If you want to room alone, or drive by yourself, great. But we still want to make sure you have everything you need and you are prepared. Please join us! We are going to be discussing what Front Sight is, why we travel 6 hours to get there, why I keep talking about it, who is carpooling, who wants a roommate, what to bring, and so much more. You can take a 2 day or a 4 day class. They are all incredible. Everyone is challenged. Your skill level will be increased. We all have a skills evaluation at the end. We all pass! Some will graduate, few will earn the top of the class bragging rights. Also, everyone needs to pay for their course, everyone needs to have hotels booked, and make sure they are signed up. You also need your background check started and you need to be registered for the course outside of 14 days. I need to email Front Sight with everyone's name of who is going, and who will be on our range. You can pick up ammo from me at this event for the Front Sight trip.

Front Sight Defensive Pistol or Practical Rifle $2000 course for $250

This is an amazing course in Nevada. Why Nevada? It is the nations premier firearms training institute. They train more people in a day than most ranges train in a year. They get[masked] people a day. Valley Gun Group has been there as a group 8 times as a group already. Every one of our members that went had a great time and want to go back again and again. You can take a 4 day defensive pistol course which they will train you how to place two shots to a thoracic cavity from a concealed holster all in less than a second and a half each time. Then you will get to learn how to fix Malfunctions (or mistakenly called jams) while aiming in on your target. They will let you go through simulator bays full of bad guy and good guy targets which you need to identify quickly and determine your threat level. This is all live fire. You will end the course with a skill level test. Some will leave with a certificate of achievement (show up, have fun, relax) or a graduate (apply yourself) or a distinguished graduate (top of the class, good luck, very very hard) The final part of the course is a man vs man, facing downrange, target (hostage with a tiny hostage taker target (head-shot) then red target then blue target. Each student is going against their opponent on an accuracy vs time to win. An award is given to the best student. We are going to do a 4 day shooting course in Sept/October and March/April of every year. The normal cost for this event is $2,000 but we are getting in for only $250 for all 4 days. This is a course where you will go from ok-great or from good-awesome. This is not meant to be a Navy Seal or a Delta Force Commando course but a damn good shot. You are not running and gunning, their is no jumping around or running. They simply teach you how to be incredible. By the time of the course we will have 30 people carpool to and from to this course. We meet several times before the event to meet and plan on carpool buddies, room mates, and other logistics. The hotel (Saddle West) is typically about $65 a night. This can be shared by two people. Some people share a room, some want to room alone but carpool with the group.
