Shooting Day (Lake Elsinore) — March 2

Let Logan know if you are interested in his class, he is working on the details.
He is not sure exactly how things will go, since everyone is having problems get ammo.

The following is from Logan Creighton logan_jc@live.com:

Shooting Day

Come on out for a day of shooting, games, learning and fun.  The purpose of this day will be to develop a closer bond between parent and child though firearms instruction, to increase ones skill at arms, and to foster a community of safe, accurate, and respectful shooters.  Interspersed with firearms instructions will be short lectures on spiritual matters to insure that every shooter grows in spiritual skills as well as physical abilities. The first half of the event will focus on safety instructions and firing drills, the second half will be fun and challenging targets.  Think “Top Shot” with a biblical twist.
