    I would like more info on how to become a member of the GS2AC.
    Please tell me the dates of the meetings for the rest of the year.

  2. Michael Raabe says:

    I’ve been a bit to busy lately, but wanted to find out if there is a meeting in november?
    As I recall we don’t meet in december, and do we meet starting again in january?
    Hope all is well.

  3. Fred Hoot says:

    Yes, Mark, there is a meeting on November 14th.
    It is our last meeting of the year and there are a lot of exciting things that will be happening, as well as two free drink tickets.
    The meeting starts at 7 pm, but I recommend getting there by 6 for a no-host dinner.

  4. Ed Okulove says:

    I just wanted to say hi to the members and friends at GS2AC. For those of you that don’t know, I moved to Central Oregon. After living in the Socialist Republic of California for most of my life, it has been a breath of fresh air(literally and figuratively). Rush hour traffic here is like driving in San Jose at 1:00 in the morning, the people are friendly and helpful(even when they find out I’m from California)lol.
    Ammo supply’s here are getting back to normal and the prices are better than in California, plus we don’t have sales tax. The best thing of all is that when I purchase a pistol or any number of pistols, I get to walk out of the gun shop with it right after I pay for it.
    I was also able to apply for and receive my concealed carry permit. The Sheriff here is very pro second amendment.
    However, I do miss all my friends and the monthly GS2AC and SRGC dinner meetings. I wish I could be there to try to win that Garrand !
    Just wanted to say hi and wish you all the best. Keep up the good fight.
    Ed Okulove

  5. David E Willey says:

    Don’t see a join button, or receive email subscription, I would like to hear from you guys on a regular basis. Do you email us weekly, bi – monthly, or monthly? I appreciate all you guys do, to keep us informed. An informed population is a stronger nation.

  6. Fred Hoot says:

    Hi David,

    We have added a Join Us button on the main web page. Alternatively, send an email to with the subject JOIN.
    We send out a monthly email for the meeting reminders. We also send out some emails on urgent issues, like writing to the Governor to veto a restrictive gun control bill.
    Fred Hoot, Webmaster

  7. Mike Siri says:

    I am not seeing any info on hot to become a member, or am I just missing it. The blue “Join Us” window is not functioning and does not bring you anywhere. Can you please let me know how to become a member.

    I’ve been an avid hunter since I was 7 years old (now 63) and heard about your organization from my neighbor Chris Orr. I am planning to attend your meeting on November 13th at Harry’s Hofbrau.

    Mike Siri

  8. Fred Hoot says:

    Hi Mike! I have added you to our membership list.

    If you run into problems, just send an email to telling us you would like to join.
    Membership to the GS2AC is FREE!

  9. Lary James says:

    I am new to the GS2AC and I want to be heavily involved as an activist for more reasonable gun laws in California, particularly Santa Clara County. I want to apply for a CCW but the gun shops are warning me NOT to apply yet because either the DOJ and/or the Santa Clara County Sheriff is sitting on all apps and is STILL dragging their heels and fighting a court order which would require them to issue CCW’s unless they had a valid reason NOT to issue. In my case, there IS NO valid reason not to issue, and my 2nd Amendment Rights are currently being VIOLATED as a result. I will be re-joining the NRA today (after years of absence). Should I join THROUGH the GS2AC …. i.e. does it help the club ? If so, how do I do that? Or I understand that I can join via Midway USA and get a discount or something. How do I become more involved as an activist for better gun legislation in California & SCLA County ? Regards, Lary James

  10. William Scott says:
