I’ll be at this event conducting NRA Recruiting as well as RSO duties on the line. If you want to watch for shoot some full auto firearms, then come on out!
Here’s what it looks like to shoot competition at the Pharr Gun Club, recorded September 1st.
Our very own Youth Instructor, Daniel Gutierrez, has graciously offered to host a class for anyone, PRPC member or not, to become a certified NRA Range Safety Officer. Please consider this opportunity and if at all possible, go for it! The typical way to do so is to take a drive to Houston or Austin or elsewhere, take a 10 hour course, then come home. This way, you are able to take the course for nearly the cost of materials and don’t incur any special travel of food related fees! Once you become an RSO, you get that really neato hat with the NRA logo on the front and ‘RSO’ on the back.
PRPC members will be able to attend the training course for the low price of $60. Non-members who wish to gain this credential will still be able to attain it for the low price of $100. For reference, the closest Instructor is in San Antonio, and he charges $165 for the course! Take advantage now while you have the chance.

I had a member tell me the other day that he recently purchased a Windham Weaponry standard config M4gery AR-15 at the Saxet show in San Antonio. He paid $899 for it. Considering that the Windham’s are essentially the Bushmaster label under a new name, the last year price of $800 has almost returned to where it was.
For my part, I expect in 2-3 years for all the panic buyers who bought AR’s & AK-type rifles with fear of a ban to turn around and try to dump them back into the marketplace. The problem here is that when they paid $3200 for a Colt LE6920 that is really only worth about $1050, they will be in for a rude awakening. I hope everyone who bought a firearm joins the culture and becomes an avid shooter, but I don’t think that has happened. I’ve met many new shooters at PRPC and other locations, and they are either in the tacticool mall ninja crowd, already an existing shooter, or not really inclined to “join the club” so to speak. I could be wrong, but that’s my impression.
For your part, I hope you inspire your friends and those around you to join the firearm culture. We need more people, as the fight will never die. Remember, gun have two enemies: RUST & POLITICIANS!
