Ragged Island was the setting for our range day.

It’s our producer, Kenn Blanchard, who also did a podcast on the experience.

Give a listen to our brother from another mother, Kenn Blanchard, about the LWRCI experience on his show, “Black Man with a Gun.”


Here’s Anne Mauro, coach of the Univ. of Maryland shotgun team, and it was her FIRST time on an AR! She rocked it.

Obviously, something surprised Kenn Blanchard and David Ridley (LWRCI) about this gun.

We mentioned the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, Maryland, in the show. WOW! We met Randy Hofman, sand sculpturer, onsite, as he prepared a beautiful sculpture for a party that day.

Barb was enthralled to learn about the history of this area, which included being part of the Underground Railroad.

Firearms News You Can Use

Barb mentions the fact that permitless concealed carry is 1 year old in Idaho, and no ill effects have been noticed. In fact, there’s been an uptick in attendance at concealed carry classes. Carrie gives a shout out to competition shooter and DC Project coordinator Dianna Muller, for her Op-ed piece in Tulsa World, “Women’s March against the NRA? Count me out!”
