Open Carry Rally and discounted training!

This post will be a little different than my usual. I'd like to announce an open-carry, Restore the Constitution Rally here in Luna, NM on 4 July, 2011. With your help, we're going to shoot for making this the largest armed rally of men and women since they rallied the troops for WWII.

Since the Independence Day will be falling on Monday and most folks will be taking a nice, long weekend to enjoy it, we decided to offer some discount training opportunities as well.

Here's a run-down of what's going to be happening that weekend.

On Saturday, July 2nd, we will be conducting a good, full day of defensive handgun training from 8:00am to 5:00pm. You will need to bring the defensive handgun of your choice, strong-side belt or paddle holster, brimmed hat or cap, eye and ear protection and 250 rounds of new, commercial ammunition. No reloads!
Some rental guns and equipment are available.
Cost: $199.

Sunday the 3rd will begin with defensive rifle training at 8:00am and go to noon. Your rifle must have a sling attached and you will need 100 rounds of ammo in addition to the same safety equipment listed above.
Cost: $89.
Defensive shotgun training will begin at 1:00pm and go to 5:00pm. You will need a shotgun of any action type, sling, safety equipment, 50 rounds of birdshot (whatever is cheap), 20 rounds of 00 buckshot and 10 slugs.
Cost: $89

The cost for both days will be $377 which is already $18 less than our normal 2-day classes but if you take all three classes and sign up by 15 June, you will pay only $350! Savings to you? About $50 off of what we normally charge for a 2-day class. You can use that savings to buy ammo!
Tuition is non-refundable but can be applied to another class at a later date. Our normal 2-day classes run from $395 to $450, depending on the level of training so this is a pretty good savings either way.
Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and space is limited! Call 575-547-AK47 or e-mail training@southwestshootingAuthority.com for more info.

These are mildly intense classes. It should be very warm but here in the mountains, temperatures may go from one extreme to the other with little notice so bring any additional items of personal comfort that you may need such as a jacket or raincoat, sunscreen, lawn chair, etc. It would also be to your benefit to take notes.
You will need to bring a lunch and/or snacks. We will take numerous breaks and stop for 1 hour for lunch.

The 4th of July is the Open-Carry, Restore the Constitution Rally from 9:00am to around 3:00pm. Speakers, music, contests and lots of fun will be here for the having. Friday and Saturday nights will be used for socializing and solving the world's problems. Food and drink will be available both nights.


Primitive camping is as close as 3 miles to the range and RV parks and motels are only 14 miles away. Call us before you arrive. There are some discounts available but we will need to give you a code.
