Please join us for an informative evening. And, don't forget to bring a friend!



WCGR Gun Giveaway

      Will County ISRA member, David Burggren, was the name drawn for the WCGR Gun Giveaway last month. Unfortunately, David  was not present so we will draw another name this month. Remember, the winner must be present, be an ISRA member, have a valid FOID and comply with all local, state and federal laws.


March Meeting


 Will County Deputy, Kim Heath, was our guest speaker. Kim is the lead firearms instructor for the Will County Sheriff’s department and there have been articles published, both by and about her, in Guns and Ammo and Recoil Concealment Magazine. Kim is the first, woman master tactical patrol officer. She has been on the Glock calendar. Below is some of the advice that give shared with us:

• The position of the feet is the first part of building a proper platform to absorb recoil. The isosceles stance doesn’t stop back and forth movement; even with one foot forward, it still does not stop the movement. You must stick the butt back and lean shoulders slightly forward, and then the body is very solid. That was Kim’s first golden nugget.



Thank you to everyone who attended!


Chairman's Comments


   I am amazed at how people can look at the same thing and see it in two or more different ways. In politics, especially, I find this is very true. And, the differences in view can lead to heated exchanges of views and, sometimes, even violent exchanges. Most of my views are conservative in nature. I think most gun owners tend to have similar views; at least that’s the way it is with most of the ones I know. I do know two, avid gun owners who are both firmly pro-Second Amendment, but for reasons I can’t understand, are strong Obama supporters. One still even believes Obama does not want to take away our guns! How about that for not seeing the forest through the trees? His own son, who works at a gun shop, has gotten into some pretty heated arguments with his father over this. Yet, they still often go to the gun range together to enjoy their guns. more
