Special Alert - If There Was Ever A Weekend To Buy A Gun - This Is It!

If you're sitting on any extra cash this Father's Day Weekend, you may want to gather it up and head down to your local gun shop. The traditional summer sales slowdown means bigger inventories, wider product selections, and great bargains for the savvy gun shopper.

If you're thinking that you're not in the market for a new gun, you should think again. Take the time to survey the readiness stance of your home and personal safety programs. If you find gaps in your inventory, this weekend would be a great time to fill them with a new handgun, defensive shotgun or tactical rifle.

If you're getting low on ammunition, you'd better stock up before Obama's renewed efforts to confiscate your guns causes a run on the ammo department. Obama has been touted as being the world's greatest gun salesman. Sometimes his efforts are too great - especially when you're looking for a particular caliber but the shelves are bare.

While we're talking about fun with guns, keep in mind that the Illinois State Rifle Association will be holding its annual NRA Day at the ISRA Range event on Saturday June 18th, from 10:00am - 4:00pm. There will be a lot of great guns to test out and a lot of great opportunities to network with other gun folks. For more details about the open house, visit the ISRA web site at http://www.isra.org

Remember your gun rights only remain strong so long as you exercise them!
