We're going to be shopping for a very worthwhile cause something that is benign going on. Just in recent weeks here as well as to children's hospital and that is the camp. Scholarships. You know there are various camps that GHS Children's Hospital runs for these youngsters allowing your kid to attend. One of the GHS camps for free essentially. You were providing a scholarship. For these youngsters these include camp courage camp level one and camp buddy and each one of these is specially catered. Two kids with special healthcare needs. And obviously otherwise would not be able to attend camp. And it's it's very important because. So many of these youngsters. They're dealing with those situations where. That the treatments that they're undergoing can make them appear. Differently than other kids knew how kids can be. So when there at camp and where there with. Other youngsters that are going through the same circumstances they are it's a much more comfortable environment for them. And your donations helped to send youngsters to these various camps 877719. 5437. Now in the last hour. Of the program. We were doing a power hour and that was sponsored by our friends at city arsenal and I mentioned a little bit about him bill Robinson in the gang over there including. Who joins us now Jay how are you man. Happening now my pleasure great to have you here we really appreciate down the folks at city arsenal. Stepping up and sponsoring a power hour during the last hour because we've. Were able to raise a pretty substantial amount of money. And each dollar that we got was doubled. By the generosity of you folks at city arsenal for folks who may not be aware of it you guys have undergone. A pretty dramatic. Renovation at city arsenal and if you. Went there in the old days. It would be virtually unrecognized right now. Yeah I mean the big thinker villains this team over to the arsenal was to create an environment that was unique sees the typical gun store shopping environment right I think. They wanted something that would again be called it wasn't gonna be off putting really open because that's what gun shop in should be when you're going into make such an important decision you wanna guess Hillary trust the staff. It's clean. It's it's for lack of better word of really is a beautiful place to come by a gun and you get a staff in place it's really their team custom the key to your fire needs to not kind of this specific brand. They're not caliber snobs they're really they're gonna find the exact gun that you're gonna use hopefully. For fun and recreation but god forbid you have to be in that situation have been training their that you can get also at city arsenal CWP classes all of the above right to get to all squared away and ready to go. Yeah and it's really important because I'm mentioned when we are talking off the air few minutes ago that does that I was trained in the old days the back in the day back before electricity was invented. In firearm safety and and how to use of weapons to defend myself but that's been so long ago. And sadly you know this is this is a skill that that appreciates. Like falling off a cliff if you don't do it on a regular basis. Yet another channel where I find myself. Yeah and the big thing and it's kids if you are in that pressure situation it really is gonna come down to muscle memory writes it's repetition and actually. What's your person purchasing that fire making sure that you go to place for you can use. Where you can put pled down range and actually go to the battery of arms and get an understanding that in the heat of the moment when everything else kinda goes out of the way. You've practiced nothing you proficient enough in your responsible enough with that fire in the purchase. Pitcher ready to sit. Protect yourself. Yeah and you mentioned responsibility because as was stressed to me every bullet in some way that's right. And future of wanna make sure that it it ends up that your intended targets right and it and not and so much out of the way place. How long have you guys had done the renovations in effective and when did you line actually do all that work. So the renovations have been completed for a little over a year now mom body when he used to be Allen arms and points at highway right still is working for an arms dealer here locally and buy locally means that. Family was set up here in Greenville that he was in Georgia quite helpful and the wife kind of made him make a decision that's hey guess what. We're purchasing something we want to stay in the industry. And it was just really for Tuesday that Alan. Range but it needed work and once we started putting more into the range it was a realization that. Predict an adjective let's make sure that this is the place where. Women they'll say you couldn't decades and they have a full range calpers that it really is a place where they want people to come in and started 22 you. And she all the way to full audit which like an option that they have there as well. Yeah that's pretty cool I've shuffle on out before yep and he just got to make sure that you're aware of the fact that it will ride out on that's right. That's right I hope you can you don't silence there as well another big thing for city arsenal is their turn key selection of silences that happens not big believers that. Let's announcer and a gun is really hearing protection for the extra practice with eyes and ears. When you go to fire the gun and it is maybe it dire situation you don't want that loud. Movement of gas out of the barrel to actually start lees actually openness oppressors answering an excellent sense you know they are completely legal. And the folks over at city arsenal not only have this election experts and Stafford is trying to keep them going there Milwaukee for the the process if you're done and then provide you with a fingerprint in the paperwork too nice as that's not something on your and it fell out once you're in the door you're out of sorts also made it.
