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.

Caswells Ladies Night

Caswells Shooting Range

Tell the front desk you are with the Valley Gun Group. $10 for range fees for the guys, ladies shoot free. Everyone pays for their own targets. We usually shoot for about an hour so keep this in mind. Ladies - highly recommend snug high neckline tops while on the range. I set the start time early for those of us who can come early. This doesn't mean that if you cannot make until 6pm that you shouldn't come. If you RSVP 'Yes' please do show up. If something 'comes up' please let me know beforehand would be nice. Text me at[masked]. If you normally wear eyeglasses then shooting glasses is a choice or option. I have extra ears and eyes if someone needs a set but let me know in advance. If you currently do not have a gun, no worries you can shoot what I bring if you wish. I will reserve rifle lanes for those who wish to bring a rifle. I think Jason's Deli is still the go to place to eat and chat, close, easy to get to. It's not that I ain't sociable I just am moderately hearing impaired with extreme tinnitus.

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

We are taking the March 29th course, but leaving for Nevada on March 28th. We will be returning April 2nd. You can leave right after class on Monday if you choose. 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 seven 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 October and 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. Carpool: Jayson Hoffer (driving) Richard Passenger, room for 2 more.
