Several Training Courses Set for August

At the last Board Meeting Friday evening, the Board approved a series of courses taught by CCGC member Brett Denison. He has taught each of these classes several times before, all to good reviews. Fees for each class are nominal.
To help you plan the remainder of your Summer, Brett will teach:

Concealed Carry on August 5;
Refuse To Be A Victim on August 12;
Range Safety Officer (RSO) on August 19; and,
Emergency First Aid on August 26.
The following link takes you to a page with links to each class and links to register.

I will publish another reminder of these courses in the August newsletter. Register now so you don’t miss your spot.

Long Overdue Page Updates Have Been Made

If you follow this page, you’ve seen updates slowing down in time. I experienced some hiccups with our service and conncection and, once I got those sorted out, a change of software was required. Learning new software always requires time, something in short supply this time of year. I’d much rather learn during the Winter so I have the rest of the year to do what I need to do.

We had a number of companies who had been waiting to be connected to the Links pages, especially Links – Shooting. They have now been made, hopefully to their satisfaction.

The newsletter archives have been updated, and the current calendar is found under Events. I am trying to get each of the sponsors of CCGC programs to contribute at least a brief description of their activities. The 2700 League has done just that and can be found as a new addition under Programs.

That’s about it for now. Keep looking here from time to time, keep reading your newsletter each month, and look in on Facebook from time to time. A lot is happening at CCGC, and you need to keep up with everything.

Novice Hunter Program to Offer Classes

The Novice Hunter Program (NHP) supports the new hunter, adults and youth, through detailed pheasant hunting knowledge, practical field experience, and quality instruction on a trap range. Upon completing NHP, hunters should have an understanding of common small game hunting skills and a solid base of knowledge to expand their hunting skills.

Students will attend a classroom portion covering pheasant biology, habitat, where to hunt, regulations, ethics, safety, gear, and field tactics. They will progress to a half day field session that includes a wing-shooting clinic and simulated hunt. After completing this program, NHP students will receive a vehicle permit to hunt NHP Walk-In Access (WIA) properties in Northeast Colorado. In addition, several mentored hunts will be offered during the pheasant hunting season to students that want additional instruction.

Students may borrow a shotgun for the field sessions and mentored hunts. All ammunition will be provided by Colorado Parks and Wildlife for the wingshooting clinic. The Novice Hunter Program is a free event.

Colorado: Senate Committee Defeats Anti-Gun Bill and Passes Pro-Gun Bill

Yesterday, the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee defeated anti-gun legislation, Senate Bill 51 on a party line vote.  At the same time, the committee passed magazine ban repeal legislation, Senate Bill 52.  SB 52 will now go the Senate floor where it will await full consideration. Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to support Senate Bill 52.

Senate Bill 51, sponsored by Senator Michael Merrifield, would make it a crime to knowingly possess a “multi-burst trigger activator” that is designed or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semi-automatic firearm.  The broad and overreaching provisions in this legislation could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.

Senate Bill 52, sponsored by Senator Owen Hill, and Representatives Lori Saine and Stephen Humphrey, seeks to repeal the misguided 2013 law that limited the amount of ammunition a firearm magazine can hold.  By removing this restriction, law-abiding Coloradans are not limited in their ability to protect themselves and their loved ones.

Again, please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to support Senate Bill 52

Colorado: Monday Hearing Scheduled for Gun Bills in Senate Committee

On Monday, March 19, the Senate State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee is scheduled to consider two gun bills. Please contact committee members and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 51 and to SUPPORT Senate Bill 52.

Senate Bill 51, sponsored by Senator Michael Merrifield, would make it a crime to knowingly possess a “multi-burst trigger activator” that is designed or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semi-automatic firearm.

Action Alert: Don’t Let the Media and Gun Control Activists Blame You for the Actions of Criminals — Contact Your Lawmakers Today!

Rather than address our broken mental health system, our inability to provide proper school security, or numerous failings by law enforcement and others to identify a clearly dangerous individual, all solutions that NRA supports, gun control activists want to blame the NRA, its members, and America’s 120 million law-abiding gun owners. Make no mistake, the NRA will not let the media elites get away with blaming its members and the gun-owning public for the acts of a single deranged person or the culture of inaction that allowed him to operate unchecked. The NRA is resolved to stand up to whatever forces seek to erode our freedom. Stand with us. Together, we are freedom’s last, best chance.
