I was looking at the pamphlet for the Joe Rich Club too. I might join it some day.

Wow, I like this website for the organization. I wonder how easy it is to find out if they have surpassed membership limits and there is a waitlist.

I am thinking of getting a gun and learning how to use it properly. PAL and CORE classes of course.

I'd love to be a guest for a day to see if it's for me. Anyone know anyone willing to take me? :admin:

PAL courses can be found throughout the valley and are either scheduled to work for people or are somewhat flexible to allow attendance. There are lots of training books floating around to get a head start. Most everyone connected to the shooting world is enthusiastic to help the new comers and will make them comfortable. Nothing to be intimidated about when learning.

I suggest anyone wanting to get on board do so sooner rather than later. While the PAL or RPAL training is your first step and usually a smooth process, the actual application and acceptance for them can sometimes be a rather drawn out and long wait. I can guarantee that obtaining a PAL is not going to get easier so act now. I have never heard anyone say "jeeze, I wish I didn't have the licence to own a gun".

Lastly, don't go out a first time and let anyone put a large caliber or magnum rifle in your hands. Make sure they know their way around firearms, technique, safety and have your interests in mind. Start small.
Someone has to say it.

Yeah, firearms are no joke. Always know your way around a rifle before even considering a purchase, among other obvious things that were already mentioned.

After all, they are one of those tools whose sole purpose, when conceived, was to kill things.

I saw one table of jewelry some women had that was near the Conservation Booth and a booth selling curling irons. Okay to me neither is outdoor related and they were out of place there. Make sure you don't forget that plug in curling iron when in the outdoors!...lol I really would have loved to see more local stores and even some sports hobbyists like wood carving etc represented. I am going to go to the one in Penticton in August. Sounds like it might be a good one starting up. I too will go back to this show next year.

I figured something had to be there for the bored ladies accompanying their hunter/fisher spouse, so I was good with that.

I wonder who bought the Beaver Rub and if it's any good.
