thanks to Mr Higby and Lisa for the ammunition donations

thanks to Mitch, Austin, Ed, Lisa, Major, Master Gunny and Gunny for “manning” the firing points and teaching the new shooters

thanks to Patty for all your donations and for greeting and signing up all the visitors

thanks to Austin’s family, Major, Lisa, Mitch for use of your pistols and rifle (Austin)

thanks to Than and the Santa Clara Valley Rifle Club for allowing us use of the range

I took some photos but, of course, I couldn’t put my camera in front of you so they are all side or back shots. Click here:  photos
