Exciting Upcoming Event: October 2, 2019, 6:00-9:00PM
Firearms Law Workshop/Use of Force Simulation Training
U.S. Law Shield and Safe & Secure Training and Range are proud to present a unique educational opportunity! Experience a type of critical incident training that is usually only available to Law Enforcement Officers! Any time we are able to offer one of these classes at a gun club, it usually sells out in a day. If you want to come, now is your chance - just make sure you sign up fast! We will start the course with a legal lecture that explains when you can use a firearm to defend yourself and/or someone else. During the second half of the course, attendees will have the opportunity to volunteer to go through simulated scenarios which will require them to make split-second decisions about using deadly force while carrying a laser firearm that is designed to look and feel like exactly like a real firearm. After participants complete the scenarios, the instructors will offer feedback and solicit opinions from the audience.
This course is always an eye-opening experience for everyone in attendance whether they choose to go through the scenarios themselves or just to observe. Cost: US Law Shield Members - FREE, Irwin Sportsmen Members & General Public - $10 (Cash payments at the door are preferred.)
For Sale - Early 2000 Model Proline Left Handed Compound Bow with arrows and carrying case. As new. Never Hunted. Price is Negotiable. Call Lou at 724.744.4562 (11/19)
For Sale - Winchester 1894 in 32 Special, purchased two years ago. The S\N is 2,000,XXX which puts it as being manufactured in 1953. It's a decent shooter as I've gotten 4" groups at 100 yards. However, the rifle has just sat in my gun safe since I worked up a load for it. The rifle is in very nice shape (I think so...for being made in '53) and functions very smoothly. I purchased two boxes of Hornady Leverlution ammo back then with the thinking I would shoot the ammo, and have a proper head stamp for my reloads. The ammo is still in my ammo box. $525 for the rifle and the two boxes of factory ammo. It's a good rifle that anyone would be happy to own. Front sight has a nice white striped ramp on it. Factory groved hammer and factory metal checkered butt plate. Contact Dave Teems @ 412-999-3232. (10/19)
For Sale - Sig P938 Extreme Edition, G10 Grips, Night Sights, 2 holsters (Versacarry Leather IWB holster, and a Sticky holster). Under 200 Rounds fired, Only carried a few times, Very good condition.
