Shoot Sunday 4/23

The gun range is mowed and nicely trimmed. 
Sunday is going to be cooler with highs in the 70s.

For those still in Retama, we are thinking about a fun shoot Sunday afternoon about 2:00. Bring plenty of ammo and something to drink.

New Name Tags

Bonnie has been working on new magnetic name badges for next season. The lanyards worked, but the blowing and twisting in the wind drove everyone crazy.

These badges are for next season, but if you are in Retama for the summer, you can get yours now. Just contact Bonnie or me.

Nice job, Bonnie!

Seminar April 26th

For those of you still in the valley, Texas Lawshield is hosting a seminar at Shooters Alley Wednesday, April 26th, at 7:00.

Rick Garcia, an instructor for the Hidalgo Sherriff Dept, is the speaker.

The first topic is "Disparity Force". That's your use of force when confronted by a much younger assailant, a much stronger assailant, or an assailant of a different sex.

The second topic is "Home Defense". How can you defend your home or RV.

Rick is an excellent trainer. I guarantee you will consider the time well spent.

Bonnie, Robert, and I talked to Rick Garcia in his office ten days ago about doing some training for us at Retama. This seminar is your chance to meet and learn from him.

If you are still in Retama, GO TO THIS SEMINAR. I am interested in your feedback afterwards.

Shoot safe,

da Range money

A few members have asked, "Is the range open in the summer?"  The answer is yes. You may shoot anytime during the summer. Bonnie will take down the steel targets when she leaves for the summer so they don't walk off. Expect to see some of the locals come to shoot when they think we are gone.
