Date for our Zombie Shoot is March 11th!
Make sure you contact Jaime, Scott or Tina and register for this event as it is our most fun event of the year!
We all meet at The Shooters Sport Center in Racine WI at 9:30 am for a quick safety meeting and then shoot from 10:00 am until noon. We shoot Semi-auto pistols and rifles (Pistol Calibers ONLY) at Zombie Targets. We also have a special surprise again this year as Thureon Defense is bringing their full auto 9mm ARs for us to shoot. If you never had the chance to shoot a full auto gun, this is your chance! People will be there to help beginners and there will even be a station where you can shoot your own guns if you so desire. Don’t miss this opportunity to have a lot of fun. We only have room for 15 people so be sure to sign up as soon as possible. There will even be an optional lunch after the fun at Di Carlos Restaurant in Oak Creek.
