2nd annual "Black Rifle Convention"
Black Rifle Convention June 5-8, 2003 -- Barry, IL

For the second year in a row, we've leased Heartland Lodge, a 2000 acre hunting resort in the Midwest, to be our host for the annual "Black Rifle Convention". With this centralized location being only an hour from St. Louis, it makes it a breeze to get to from just about anywhere in the United States.

Our goal is simple; to provide a total family atmosphere that will gain the attention of shooters and non-shooters alike, in the attempt to gain a greater membership base for the shooting world as a whole.

While simple, our approach is also very unique, as we are striving to be a little bit of Knob Creek, a little bit of Camp Perry and a whole lot of local County Fair mixed in.

Some of the sponsors for this year include East Ridge / State Arms, Alchemy Arms, Cavalry Arms, Model-1 Sales, Williams Trigger Specialties, Defensive Edge, Shotgun News, M16 Pit Tail, and many more.

Defensive Edge will be hosting a variety of classes including AR15 / M16 armorer course, self defense, and a variety of shooting related classes.

For more information and to register please visit: www.rifle-convention.com

Or come by www.gun-talk.com and visit the BRC thread.

We'll again have formal matches, machinegun rentals, vendors, open line shooting, classes, and more than ever before possible.

* Despite the name, this is not only for black rifles, but open to all weapon types!

Camping will be available on the grounds. For additional camping and hotel information go to:

Mojo and The Bayou Gypsies, "Dat Wild Party Band" starring MOJO and his Wild Krewe from the Bayou! This group of awesome performers rocks the house ala Luzianne, different from anything you’ve ever experienced before!

Red Hot MOJO


On Saturday June 7th, we will be treated to a night of fast paced Zydeco music and dancing, New Orleans style... To coincide with the "festivities", Joecoonass and his friends will be hosting a Crawfish & Crab boil ($10 per person) on Saturday night. Joe has generously offered this feast as way to help pay for these fine Cajun musicians!

Visit Mr. MOJO's website, and read a few of his reviews, as well as downloading some sound bytes.

Mr. MOJO and his entourage will be arriving early Saturday, so they can spend the day playing alongside all of us, on the firing lines!
