Need a Pistol Permit? The next Pistol Permit
Class will be
in the fall. The June 14th class has been cancelled.
When we announce the new schedule, here is how to resister: to pre-register, click the Pistol Permit bar on the
left under "MainMenu" for instructions. The class
fee is $110 and includes lunch--we're the only organization that
provides lunch with the class. Shooting is done on our
premises. Classes start at 9am. Note: this is the
last pistol permit class until the fall, so if you know anyone who
wants their pistol permit, tell them about this class.
REMINDER TO ALL RANGE SHOOTERS:
