Did you know--

Missouri Gateway Chapter member Suzanne Fenton, CPP, Fellow,
is now on the national IoPP Board of Directors!

March meeting summary--

We had a wonderful tour of Sev-Rend in Collinsville and saw how those fruit net bags are produced

June 12 We had a blast at the Winchester hand gun shooting and Fast Eddie's social. About 20 people showed up to practice pistol target shooting including all levels from beginner to experienced.  The instructors were very patient and helpful.  Winchester door prizes were raffled and we then convened at Fast Eddie's for dinner and drinks.

If you are not attending chapter meetings you are missing the
best part of being a chapter member!  We look forward to
seeing you this month!
