Three Days of GLOCK

Three Days of GLOCK

by David Diller

When I heard the Illinois State Rifle Association was going to host a GLOCK Armorer’s Course and Pistol Operator Course, I was so excited. I didn’t believe I needed to take another armorer’s course, but the thought of learning everything about the newer GLOCK Generation 5 Safe-Action-Pistol intrigued me. I was intrigued but it was late November and it might be cold.

Gun owners, get active!

Gun owners, get active!

By John Meacham, ISRA Member

As I read an article with the headline “RNC internal poll finds GOP in danger due to complacent Trump voters: report” on thehill.com, I was reminded of what Illinois State Rifle Association leaders told those of us who attended a regional meeting in Marion Tuesday of last week.

We conservatives in general and law-abiding firearm owners in particular are all too often our own worst enemies. We are too often too apathetic or uninformed to bring our full power to bear against our very real foes.
