Highlights from the ISRA Calendar

   Jul 24 - Knox County Riflemen Meeting - Galesburg

Do you live in or near Knox County?  Join this meeting of ISRA's newest grassroots group!

Our next meeting is Friday, 24 July, and we are hosting Brad Simpson of Simpson's Collector Firearms. He will be bringing an assortment of Lugers and giving a talk on the role of the Luger in the development of the modern semi-automatic handgun. I think it should prove to be an interesting evening!

The public is welcome! Bring a friend! .
