    The ranges at McMiller are longer and more varied. Plus it's about a half hour drive from Milwaukee and also Lake Geneva.

    Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive. - Noah Webster

    That was already understood. Question is how much is that a factor to get members to attend? That didn't seem to be much of a selling point last year.

    I was labeled a Deplorable, now I'm a Nationalist rather than a Globalist! As a USA Veteran I will proudly wear that to protect our Nation!
    When they can figure out how to legislate Morality and Conscience I will consider talking more gun laws.

    I vote October. July can be brutally hot and humid.
    September would compete with SD.

    I'd go anywhere in Wisconsin, although in October you may want to keep it more southern. It can get kinda cold sometimes.

    My issue is knowing WELL in advance so I can ask for days off.

    I'd make a motorcycle trip out of it

    The dunk tank has to be filled with beer. Micro brews at that.

    As I recall you had a commitment to work last year.
    I was thinking end of Sept, beginning of Oct for those that may want to use this time to sight rifles for the coming Deer season. 1st weekend in May is also the Opening of fishing season here in Wi.

    Personally I think it would be nice if you could show up so my wife doesn't feel like the Lone Ranger. Though she did have an enjoyable time the past two years.

    The public ranges also get pretty busy with the WI deer hunters coming out to sight in optics and test ammo. The idea of showcasing the other events and points of interest is that perhaps those who would travel some distance can extend their trip and bring family.

    So let's here some member feedback about the idea of doing two one day events! One in May and another in the fall like the end of Sept., beginning of Oct.? What type of activities would people like to see and partake in? Maybe a loosely held target match with pistols, rifles or 22's? A casual get together dinner afterwards?

    Speak up need ideas.

    I picked June and July, but really anytime it is scheduled I will make an attempt to go. For reasons beyond my control I'm not real sure if I will make any events this year. I really want to do Rapid City again this year since I have not been there in a while. 1 day or 2 day events are fine with me, heck maybe plan a 1 day shooting and a next day fishing charter.

    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    If one was looking for another reason to visit Wisconsin, it does feature the center of the world!
