We will be raffling off the Taurus Judges at this meeting.
Once again we are planning a Fun Shoot at the Hill Country Shooting Sports Center. Bring your favorite sidearm and plenty of ammo. Be prepared for lots of target and action shooting at this Olympic facility. A holster will be handy, but is not required.
This time the Fun Shoot will feature two demonstrations by Dean McCormick, a Bullet Effectiveness Demonstration and a Tueller Drill. While all CHLs will benefit, instructors should be particularly interested in seeing techniques they can use in their own classes.
We are planning another gun raffle featuring the Springfield XD .40cal. We will sell chances for this excellent concealed carry pistol
in the Concealed Handgun newsletter (Turns out the USPO doesn't like this.), or you can download tickets.
We will also raffle off several handguns at the conference and member's meeting, including two Taurus Judges.

You can also gather at Rick's hotel room starting about 5:00 PM Friday, March 5. CHLPP will provide adult beverages and cigars. They look forward to seeing you there.
