Gun Events Now Available In CalNRA "Minibox"

The Calendar Team at the Golden Gate NRA Members' Council and I have just completed a joint effort - adding the next 30 days' "gun related events" from their great online calendar to my legislative info "mini box" that can be exported and displayed on other websites. (An example of which can be found on the homepage here at http://calguns.net/ - maybe the earliest example of this website working with NRA. Thank you Ramon, for originally posting it and Kestryll for keeping it.)

If you have a website and would like to display the minibox, it's easy! See http://calnra.com/importlegs.shtml

But there's more - and not just for webmasters - for anyone whose group is hosting a gun-related event. YOU CAN POST IT ON THE ONLINE CALENDAR!

Just visit http://www.ggnra.org/calendar/ and use the "Submit Event" in the top-right corner. This has been available for years, actually, but not many take advantage. It's another free pro-gun service from the all-volunteer NRA Members' Councils of California. PLEASE JOIN US AT:
http://calnra.com/volunteer/

So you can have your event listed on MANY pro-gun websites all over California - everywhere the minibox is displayed!

Hey Mike,

I was in conversation with a few "fence sitters" on firearm ownership. They were interested in learning more about shooting. But their trip to a local indoor gun range left them with the typical "those guys are nut jobs". Apparently the staff were rude & the other customers were snobs.

Do the NRA local chapters have the means both financially & physically to organize an attitude free open day at a local range that we can bring friends & introduce them to shooting & the NRA? I am thinking something along the line of the Jeep Jamboree meets Glock SSF. It should be all about teaching of firearms safety, proper shooting techniques, land & animal conservation & just plain fun outdoors. I'm sure a lot of gun manufacturers would love to take this opportunity to rekindle their relationship with Californians again.

Local NRA Members' Councils include certrified NRA instructors and even instructor instructors (those who certify instructors to be instructors). I suggest getting in contact with your local MC, attend a monthly meeting, become a member and suggest the activity. Enter your info at http://calnra.com/volunteer/ and it will tell you about your local MC and their meeting time/place. (and it's free)

Hopefully, the CA Members' Council Networ's role in education and shooting will be greatly expanded in the future, but can't discuss details yet.

Mike
