The Range is Open

The range is open! Of course, there are going to be some restrictions. I suggest that we wait a few days and let the dust settle on members that are in a hurry to get in the door and shoot. The range sent an email to all members yesterday and announced the rules. Only 5 lanes will be available and you are going to need a mask. I am thinking that some of you might be willing to shoot early in the morning or later at night. This will help eliminate some of the waiting and commotion. Contact me by email or feel free to call me and we can discuss it. I have a full list of rules and guidelines for anyone wishing to view them. Just email me rick@hgwtc.com for the list or for any questions. If you like you can call me 719-821-3958.

Concealed Carry Permits

I called the Pueblo County Sheriffs Office this morning and the recording states that they are taking new applications for concealed carry and they are also issuing immediate permits under the emergency permit process. This is a good deal for you because you get your permit immediately. If you have questions or concerns about this contact me and we can talk about it.
They are still taking permit renewals by mail. Call the appointment number and listen to the directions carefully. You are allowed to renew 120 days before your expiration 719-583-4941.

Ammo Shortage
After you have been through a couple of these cycles you will learn some things about politics and ammo. 1st, every time you see some ammo you should pick up a box or two. You will shoot it eventually or in a crisis like this one you will have ammo to practice with or ammo to trade for things like food and water. Ammo is always going to be an important commodity. 2nd, I think the prices are very high for what is available. I think the price will come back down eventually and availability will increase. Remember we usually go through this when we have a Presidential Election (hint hint). We have also been hit with 10 days of riots around the country. This puts pressure on the supply of ammo all over the country. Don't pay those high prices you are seeing on the web. All you are doing is helping people take advantage of you and all the rest of us. The price will come down and you will be able to purchase ammo again at a reasonable price. I may have some ammo for new shooters depending on what is needed.

Student Download Page

In class, we talk about the resources of the password-protected downloads page that I have provided my students. I have been working on a new look and new resources for the page. I have been trying to make the information more accessible with categories and organization so it is easier to find what you are looking for. This information is available to my students and not the general public. Great information is available on the legal aspects of concealed carry, training issues, as well as some new information on self-protection coverage and more.

Pepper Spray Training

OC/Pepper Spray is legal everywhere in Colorado. It is one of the best ways we have to defend property in this state. It also serves as a complement defensive tool for anyone that carries a handgun for self-defense. Remember if all you carry is a gun the legal system can say that you intend to use a gun as a solution for everything. Statistics indicate that most self-defense encounters would not qualify for use of a gun (your life is not in danger). I have developed a booklet for the use of OC/Pepper Spray. Feel free to read it and discuss it with your family. Contact me direct for the best OC/Pepper Spray at wholesale prices.
