ISRA Annual Sighting-In-Day

ISRA Annual Sighting-In-Day

10/19/2019

The ISRA Annual Sighting-In-Day (SID) will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2019, from 9:30-3:30.  The ISRA Range offers this event every year as a public service to the community.  Aside from sighting-in your firearms, we provide this service in the interest of firearm safety.  We check in all firearms and make sure the ammunition is correct, sights are mounted properly and make certain you know how to operate your firearm.  While Sighting-In-Day is designed for hunters, we have many people who have purchased a firearm but have never fired it.  They are also welcome to come spend the day and see our Range.  This is a chance for the ISRA to meet the gun owning community.

Agenda for Lobby Day - Tuesday, October 29, 2019

10/29/2019

The Illinois State Rifle Association will sponsor a scaled down version of IGOLD on Tuesday, October 29th.  The venue for the meeting is the Howlett Building Auditorium which only holds about 500 people.  The purpose of this event is to stop in and see your State Senator and ask them to vote NO on SB1966.   If it passes the Senate, the Governor will surely sign it.  As long as you are there, take time to go see your State Representative.  If you are unable to be present, please call your State Senator and State Representative from your home or work.
