Default San Jose 2nd Saturday 'outreach' update Jan '15

Hello, Calguns folks,

We'll be continuing the second Saturday 'range outreach' or 'newbie shoot' event, this coming Saturday, the 10th, at the old San Jose range, 1580 South Tenth St (just south of Alma Ave.), beginning at 1400, and continuing til 2100 or so.

As always, please bring young folks, and newbies to shooting of any age.

Edit, update for this month........its getting just that little bit colder outside, so we won't be doing barbecue.........please bring some nice 'munchies' to share, and we'll send someone out for pizza.............. : )

(A bit more 'edit'...........we're still 'doing alright' for 22 rounds for the newbies, but just barely so, thanks to some folks who 'dug into their stash' for us.......if you like the purpose of the event, and can bring yourself to donate a bit from your pre-panic stash of 22 rounds, that would be gratefully appreciated. This event has been just barely 'kept afloat' from month to month, which is, really, as it should be......that it is supported entirely by donations is the measure of the event's worth to the community.)

I'll be providing the coffee, as usual.......and.......We've not done the 'pie shoot' for awhile now......would anyone like to bring a nice pie?

All are invited, the event is 'free' to all., if you'd like to help make the event really enjoyable for everyone, please bring some soft drinks, pastries, pizza, or, well, any sort of nice munchies for the participants, bring newbies and young people, etc.

****Note that when I say 'free', it really is 'free', no 'range fee' or anything like that, but to actually keep an event 'free' it has to be 'donation-supported' by the folks who have some $ to spare for a good cause.......which a few 'angels' have done, on the 'down-low', so to speak, which made the event actually possible. If you can spare a few $ to help us with the actual cost of food and 22 rounds, it would be gratefully appreciated.*****

This event is particularly meant to provide a friendly and welcoming range ambiance for women, particularly those who might be newbies to shooting. We'll have experienced shooters on hand to provide safety and basic proficiency instruction, 22 rifles, and various handguns for some 'familiarisation fire'.

cheers

Carla

Jack, This a fun shoot. Great instruction. Been there many times. Never left without a smile...Most shooters will let you try their guns. Got a question? Ask Carla, She is in the know.

I might have to drop by one day with my lady and sister. I am horrible at teaching. Maybe some experienced shooters can help me out. I can bring some pastries and other snacks for compensation. Thank You for doing this!

Seems like something I'd be interested in raking the family to. Is this still a monthly shoot?

I'm a newbie and I would like to come check out this event sometime. I don't think I can make it this time as I have family in town this Saturday but I'll see if I can sneak away. If not this time then probably in January. I could probably bring some .22LR ammo too.
