The Second Amendment tells us that our rights shall not be infringed. The Illinois Constitution specifies the right to keep and bear arms. And yet legislation is already coming from the Capitol that does at very least appear to be moving toward infringement. We need every responsible firearms owner in Illinois to attend IGOLD and let your voice heard.
This is a new camera added to the system to give an overall view of the club grounds.
Remember that faulty ammunition (duds) should never be tossed into the waste cans marked "Trash" or any of the brass collection buckets. For safety reasons rounds that fail to fire should always be dropped into the concrete tube outside the clubhouse.
Erik wanted to share the unvieling of a new monument in the town of Beek about five miles from where he and Jolanda live in the Netherlands.
The monument honors the crew of an American 8th Air Force bomber that crashed in a field in 1943 during one of the raids on Schweinfurt Germany in an attempt to disrupt Nazi ball bearing production. Four of the crew perished in the crash while six were able to parachute to safety. The phrase on the monument translates to "Freedom Should Not Be Taken For Granted".
Descendants of the crew were present for the dedication.
It's very nice to know that there are still people that appreciate the sacrifice that American veterans made for them during World War II. Thank you from all of us to the people of Beek, Netherlands.
There was a box of ammunition left at the club earlier this season. To our surprise no one has come forward to report the loss to any of the club officers. We think the loss occurred in early July. If you believe you are the owner of this lost ammo please email a description of the ammunition and container to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your contact information.
