Glock to Co-Sponsor GBR-IV

I've got all sorts of good news regarding the Gun Blogger Rendezvous coming up, but I'm waiting for full confirmation before announcing anything new. Today, however, I'm extremely pleased to announce that Glock has agreed to help sponsor the Gun Blogger Rendezvous, coming up September 10, 11, 12, & 13th. in Reno at the Silver Legacy hotel and Casino. As a Glock owner, (a 17, a 22, and a 34, if you must know!) I am pleased to see Glock join the Gun Blogger Rendezvous.

If you've considered attending the Rendezvous in the past but didn't quite manage to make it, this is the year to be sure to attend. There will be lots of range time, including some Steel Challenge action pistol shooting, long range rifle and pistol shooting, and some Cowboy Fast Draw fun for everyone. There will be a social session with folks from the NRA, a fund raising raffle for Project Valour-IT, an "All you can eat" pizza feed, and "Social Gatherings" (read: BS Sessions) until the wee small hours every night in our own Hospitality room at the Silver Legacy Hotel.

If you are a gun blogger, mil blogger, shooting enthusiast, competitive shooter, or a reader of the blogs that cover shooting and 2nd. amendment stuff from time to time, you are all welcome. You do not have to be a blogger to attend. The cost of the registration for the Rendezvous is low, and the cost of Silver Legacy accommodations is very reasonable.

Hi-Cap Gun Works, a local Reno gun shop and FFL holder, will handle shipping of firearms if you would like to bring your stuff to shoot but don't want to carry it in your luggage on the airplane.

Fellow bloggers, please give me a hand in getting the word out on the Rendezvous any way you can. It all helps. If you have attended in the past and are planning to be there this year, why not encourage some of the other bloggers in your area to attend this year? We could stand to have a few more folks show up as one of the first questions the possible sponsors ask is how many will be attending. The more folks attending, the easier it is to get more sponsors.

Last year's Gun Blogger Rendezvous was the best ever, and this year we are adding several new things to make it even better.

Hope to see YOU there!
