PITTSFIELD, Ill. — The Illinois State Rifle Association will host a town hall meeting in Pittsfield as part of ongoing efforts to rally gun owners across the state to preserve Second Amendment rights.
“The Second Amendment is under attack constantly in Illinois, and we expect those attacks to intensify in the next legislative session,” said Richard Pearson, Illinois State Rifle Association executive director. “We hold these events throughout the state to give gun owners an opportunity to hear from us on what the threats to their liberties are and how they can be involved in these important legislative and court battles.”
The meeting will be from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, at the American Legion post 152, 1302 W. Washington St.
Pearson said gun owners can no longer sit on the sidelines and hope for the best.
“If every gun owner in Illinois joined with us, we could do more than just stop bad legislation. We could actually advance a positive agenda for honest gun owners in Illinois,” Pearson said.
The event is free. More information is available at ISRA.org.

2018 PASA ANNUAL MEMBERS MEETING: APRIL 7th
After a Poll of the Membership, the PASA Board of Directors in 2015 Amended the PASA Constitution & Bylaws to Permanently Change the Date of the Annual PASA Members Meeting to the Last Saturday of March (one week later, should that date conflict with Easter Weekend).
This year, That Means April 7th. MARK YOUR CALENDAR!
NEW BRIDGE CONSTRUCTED ON 200-METER RANGE
A 30-year problem has finally been solved by the installation of a permanent bridge to replace the washout-prone “causeway” on PASA’s 200-Meter Range (Venue #8 on the PASA Park map). The “Masters Memorial Bridge” has been so named because it was funded by resources remaining in the PASA Pistol Division following the final Masters International Shooting Championship in August, 2014.
The old causeway was removed and the new bridge put in place by PASA Board Member Lee Atkins, in less than 24 hours, working alone as a PASA volunteer, with a single heavy-duty track-loader. He only got stuck once . . .
.22 RIMFIRE RANGE UPGRADED!
A new “flood-proof” bridge has been constructed on the .22 Rimfire Precision Range (Venue #5 on the PASA Park map). Also, four new permanent shooting tables have been installed on the Rimfire Range firing line.
Members can now shoot .22 LR pistols and rifles at fully-rigged steel Masters Precision Rimfire targets at 25 meters and 50 meters from Positions 1, 4, & 7, or shoot at paper targets from Positions 2, 3, 5, & 6. There is a 50-meter target board at Position 2, and a 25-meter target board at Position 6. Members can use their own temporary rimfire targets/stands at Positions 3 & 5. (NO CROSS-SHOOTING, please.)
All construction and fabrication of the new bridge and firing benches was accomplished in one (long) day by the volunteer effort of PASA Board Members Lee Atkins & Larry Stuhlman. The bridge was designed and engineered by Lee Atkins, and has been named “Atkins’ Crossing” in his honor.
All PASA Members owe Lee & Larry a great debt of thanks.
