Crossroads Gun Show: January Meetup

Preppers meet up/Fun shoot North Springs Shooting Range

I’ve been hearing about a new shooting range out near Price for about two years now. The pictures and descriptions I kept hearing made it seem like a great place to check out, but the distance has kept me from visiting it. Until last weekend that is.

Now, I can’t wait to go back, this time with some firearms! Some of the Utah Preppers authors are heading up again on October 24th to watch some Cowboy Action Shooting and to do some shooting of our own. Read on to learn about this shooting sports venue, see some pictures and find out when some of us will be heading out.

Inauguration Day = Utah Preppers First Meetup!

We’ve been discussing this for a while and even took a poll here on the site – Tuesday night was considered to be the best night to get together so with that in mind we’re going to do it – on Inauguration Day!

This will be a very informal meetup – we just want to get together, meet some local preppers and hang out for a bit. Hopefully we’ll have a good discussion about what we should do for future meetups – there are several possibilities there. We’re going to meet in the upstairs restaurant at Cabelas in Lehi at 6:00 pm on Tuesday January 20th, 2009. Hope to see you there!
