Next Meetup

Meet and Greet, Front Sight prep, Shoot the sh/*, meet new members
We have so many details to discuss. We need to know who is going, who you are riding with, are you driving, hotels, roomates, and so much more. Front Sight (FS) Needs names so I can get us our own ranges. We will have both a Pistol group and a rifle group. I want to make sure valleygungroup members are all on the same ranges. They have around 50 ranges. Many members need to pay the $250 course plus they can pay Front Sight $50 for the background check or they can pay me $15, as I have Front Sight credits from upgrading my membership. Everyone will need about[masked] rounds for Front Sight depending on the course they take. Half of us will probably take the pistol course and the other half will take the practical rifle course. If you need your Front Sight certificate or membership call me[masked], you will need to create a FS username at http://www.myfrontsight.com then click the link in the email that FS sends you. Without clicking the link you will not be active to send the certificate or membership over to you. You will need to choose your course. You will need to pay for a background check (even LEO, CCW, or any other people that think they already get background checks) Front Sight wants to make sure everyone has an updated background check. Front Sight charges $50 for a Background check or I can cover your fee for $15 cash to me, Jayson Hoffer. You will also have to fill out a character witness statement. Seriously, FS wants to protect their members. The first day of the course you will get to shoot what is called the FUN GUN shoot. You can shoot full auto Tommy Guns, MP5's, UZI, Mini UZI, or a M16. FS charges $40 a magazine or you can pay me $5 a magazine. What a rush it is to fire these weapon systems. Everyone loves it. Please call me before you send money!!!![masked] http://www.myfrontsight.com asks for your username. It is not an email address just your username. For example: My email is [masked] but my username is ilovefarmers If you want to pay for your 4 day course and your background check send $265 please. Also, add your name and what course you want. Either 4 day Defensive pistol or 4 day Practical Rifle. I hope Rob or someone else who has gone to FS rifle course can make it so we can be well informed about what to expect. I know we need a sling for Rifles. Pistol courses have a few things to be prepared for. We will discuss this Wednesday night. Even if you have been to FS, please join us so we can meet and discuss travel (riding) or hotel (camping) options. ---------------------- We also need to talk about back up guns. I broke my gun 3 times on the shotgun course and had to see the gunsmith. If you do not have a backup gun you can buy a FS gun rental for 4 days for $200 or I can sell you one of my certificates for $50. Alan rented a gun right away planning on having a backup. Please join us. If you need pistol ammo, please let me know in a comment. If I see your comment I will place your order in this box. I upgraded my membership to Front Sight a few times so I have Front Sight credits to use and 4 day certificates and more items I can't discuss electronically which is how I am getting everyone a $2000 course for only a $[masked]

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.

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.
