This weekend marks the Shootist's 8th Annual Spring Event and Expo
. An ever popular outing for the community, last year's Expo drew more than 1,000 people from the surrounding neighborhoods.
At first you might think it's nothing more than a sale, but Erin Archbold-Silman, an ever important cog in The Shootist's gears, ensures it's much more than that. In fact, here's just a taste of what you're going to see this weekend in Murrieta:
- Murrieta Fire Department will be promoting promoting the Phil Armentrout Memorial Trap Shoot for Charity. Chief Armentrout answered his last alarm on December 27, 2005. He started this event that year to benefit the ACS Relay for Life, and The Shootist and MFD carry on that tradition with honor.
- Murrieta Police Department will be here to answer questions on the legality of certain firearms, how to transport them, how to legally transfer a firearm to someone else, etc. they will also be showcaseing many of the specialized firearms MPD SWAT uses to help keep our community safe – including the use of their K9’s (man’s best friend).
- For the last five years now we’ve been holding an Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program COLORING CONTEST – we pick various winners based on age and post the submissions on our FACEBOOK page, our website, and they are also published in all 3 of our local Newspapers!
- Glock will be dropping by to take a look at your Glocks AND repair them for free!
And while you're there, you also might want to ask Erin about any plans for a Friends of NRA banquet this year.
