I kind of dropped the ball on this one. I would still like to do it, but I'll need some help.

If anyone would like to help get this going, I'd really love to see this happen.

The more I think about this the less important it becomes.

Calguns and any related organization may have need of published docs from time to time. But paper news is stale esp with print/distribution lead times.

We want people joining the website for late-breaking news.

If you want free paperwork with outdated info, there are other local gun orgs for that.

It may be best for Calguns to have bulk biz cards printed up with Calguns website URL/logo and NRA / Calif NRA contact info as well, and maybe a coupla of the gun lawyers' contact #s on back of it. A stack of these cards would be in every gun shop, shooting range or gun-friendly business.

A larger printed sign promoting Calguns could also be posted on bulletin board areas or frequent-traffic areas of such businesses.

Good idea.

I am amazed at the number of shooters(and vendors) that go to gun shows that have never heard of CalGuns. We need one of those banners to put on fences as folks come to the show. Maybe one of the vendors who advertise here could zip tie one up before a gun show. Or the NRA crew out front selling memberships. It certainly would help their business traffic and help promote this site. And we know the DOJ does not want this site to be known by the shooting public, let alone J.Q. Public. I wonder what they are so scared of?

It would also help if the most referenced, most remembered AR/AK informational section on the website were actually updated.

The whole front page of the website could be a LOT more user-friendly & splashy - I think that would make a much larger impact than anything we could do in print.

We have so many disparate resources, would be nice to pool them and the talent to make something definitive, glossy and of high quality on the site.

I agree with that!

But as far as getting the word out via business cards etc. How about a powerpoint that would tell the story of calguns and outline the victories thus far and the work still to be done. I think that a gun show promoter might give you some space to run a couple of workshops that could introduce folks to internet activisim. I have all the equipment to put on a workshop like that. (data projector, screen, mobile internet etc.)
