We had a general discussion on Firearms Laws that exist today and the New Laws with the help of Jay Brodell, Editor of AM Costa Rica and Co Sponsor of This Event. The New Laws, it seems, are less about safety more about taking away the primary means of defense for private citizens. There is much historical precedence to show what happens when countries take away these rights. I leave it for you to ponder. If you don’t like the trend, however, support http://prodefensa.org/ choose Translate, and join the fight against the 18050 Legislative proposal for citizen control. If you have a cedula, you’re invested in this country. This is not something you can go back and fix later if things turn sour. It’s something you can do now so they won’t.

This is about where the pictures run out. Garland Baker took what you see here and I can’t thank him enough. So just let me say:
We had a great demonstration by some very fine shooters, some pictured below and others of distinction in the use of firearms. The people gathered there, clapped after each string. I was proud of everyone; even the crowd. What a great day!
I want to sincerely thank AM Costa Rica,
Jose, Eddie, Edgar and friends
who helped put on the show.
Were there problems?
Yes; I undervalued the generator so we couldn’t make the coffee in the morning.
We didn’t plan for some participants not show up.
The psychologist who was supposed to speak became angry and left.
People had to wait for us to organize the guns and ammo and I suppose there were other things we missed but, my God, you People who made it were seriously interested in what we had to say and curious about firearms and displayed a wonderful tolerance for the small mistakes we made. I hope we can do this again. If we do, please become a regular at La Garita Pistol Club. We need each other.
I want to especially thank Jose Rodriguez from Hurican in Alajuela for bringing merchandise on a gamble. He was the only Armaro who came to sell his products. Jose said he’d come again next time. Next week I’ll be taking a friend to take a closer look and probably buy that Beretta he’s been longing for.
Mil-Comm Products was there in force as Gaby Wife, Mauri Brother-in-Law, Andre Daughter and Alex Boyfriend all shared duties cooking Barbecue, poring Cokes and tending the display table for Mil-Comm and NRA Gun Care Systems.
If you missed it, you may catch a better show next time but there will never be more magic than there was at La Garita Pistol Club last Saturday, June 22nd 2013
