The first shoot of the 2014 New Year for the Inland Empire Chapter of CGSSA was held on January 3rd. We had 18 people in attendance, ranging from beginners to experienced shooters. The Inland Empire monthly shoot is held every first Friday of the month at Rancho Magnum Range (RMR). This month we had a guest speaker California State Assemblyman Mike Morrell who represents the 40th district give a quick speech followed with a Question and Answer session.
General range time then followed. During this time people tested our their new firearms. New shooters learned the basics. And some shooters tried their hand at the NRA/Winchester Pistol Qualification. This month we had 3 new people earn the first rank in the program “Pro-Marksman”. Others worked on their progression of “Marksman 1st Class”. And one was able to complete the rank of “Sharpshooter”.
