Education and outreach have been a part of who Inland Empire Gun Owners is from the very beginning. Our diverse group of volunteers work to expand the shooting sport community and educate the public. Join us on Saturday April 1st for our Spring Shooting Social and BBQ!
This is not a "New Shooter" event, but it is open to all. For this event if you have any extra sets of eye and ear protection please bring to share as Rainbow Range does not have any to rent or use, just in case we have any visitors or new shooters.
Members: If you have one PLEASE WEAR YOUR IEGO SHIRT!
We will have a Pistol Competiton and BBQ Hot Dogs and Hamburgers for lunch.
