As many of you know, we, as in NYFirearms.com, as well as myself, personally, have supported NYSRPA (New York State Rifle & Pistol Association) for quite some time now. We’ve held raffles, advertised in their newsletter, and generally sent as many people towards them as we can. We truly believe in their organization.
I personally have trained with, and had the great pleasure to call my friend, Joe DeBergalis. He is currently running for re-election to the NRA Board of Directors. Many of you already know what a great part of the firearms industry Joe is and how much he has done to protect our 2A rights. He works tirelessly on the NRA Board now, is vice president of NYSRPA, Chair of the NRA Education & Training Committee, Chair of the AR15.COM/Rockcastle Shooting Complex ProAM, and part of many other 2A organizations.
We absolutely need more people like Joe working for our rights, and I will be voting for Joe on the NRA Board again, and you should too. If you do not know who Joe is or would like to read more about what he has done or is doing, and want more information on how to vote, visit his website at Joe DeBergalis for NRA Board 2012.
Now if we could only get Joe to write some articles for us on here! 🙂
After Action Report – Combat Focus Shooting Course
Instructor- Rob Pincus, I.C.E .Training
Date – January 30+31, 2010
Location- Oneida, N.Y.
Review by- Chris Fry
On January 30+31 MDTS had the good fortune to co-host a Combat Focus Shooting course from I.C.E. Training taught by Rob Pincus. Rob is the developer of the Combat Focus Shooting system. For those who don’t know who Rob is, he is former Military, former Law Enforcement and the former director of operations for Valhalla Shooting Center in Colorado. Rob is currently the host of the NRA’s Personal Firearm Defense DVD series, host of the “The Best Defense” and “SWAT Magazine TV” shows on the outdoor channel and current director of I.C.E. Training.
The Combat Focus Shooting course is the first of several training classes M.D.T.S., AR15.com and the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association have teamed up to bring to NY in 2010 and 2011. This “Tactical and Practical” training series is an effort to introduce New York state shooters to some of the best and most progressive training available on the market today at an affordable price.
NYFirearms.com was invited to co-sponsor a great cause by NYSRPA. Please consider donating to support the members of the 10th Mountain Division who are putting themselves in harms way to defend our freedom. Click here for the full sized banner promoting the fundraiser.
Originally posted by “DirectAction” fron NYSRPA:
The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, in conjunction with AR15.COM, MDTS Training and the Warriors Legacy Foundation (www.warriorslegacyfoundation.org) will be adopting the forwardly deployed units of the “10th Mountain Division,” in a program we are calling “Operation: Support their “Climb to Glory!”
In essence, the NYSRPA will be the monetary collection point for any and all donations made for the purchase of needed items that the “10th” may need to make their deployment just a little easier….We will be sending them personal items, gun cleaning supplies and whatever they decide that they would need to keep them in the fight….
If you are interested, please feel free to send a check in whatever amount – please know that all contributions are welcome!
