Interesting they promote a range that doesnt allow open carry. Seems quite backwards to me.. Gun rights group promote's a range where a right to carry firearms is banned. Not something I'd be interested in supporting. You guys might want to rethink that strategy.
My name is Bryan and I am a member of the SMVM with LFB.
I understand the sentiment quoted above, but let me explain our situation.
For fifteen years our group had the use of a private range on a 140-acre farm for all of our events. It was owned by a kind old World War 2 veteran. Sadly, he recently passed away and we lost access to our training ground.
Over the past few months we have made do with what we can find. Currently Island Lake Recreation Area is the best place we know of within a reasonable distance. We will work to try and change their no open carry policy, and also look for other suitable locations for our events.
Please bear with us and don't let the range's bad policy stop you from coming to the park to check us out. You can OC anywhere else in the park, including where our picnic will be. This event has ALWAYS been a good
time, and it will be worth your
time. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you there.
