I just started it.
I would ask him questions.
Ask him questions like you are seeking his advise. Maybe phrase it something like “I’m getting a lot of pressure too and am thinking about getting it, but I’m a little concerned about -xyz-, what did you think about that?”
You want him to actually think about it, not just throw a ton of information at him. I’ve found that people will think more carefully if they think they are giving YOU advice,you have to direct their research with specific questions though.
I have to admit, I kind of love the name. Haha
This was one of my concerns as well. After talking it over with the friends of mine who are members it sounds like they just picked that name to be provocative, lol, and are in no way an actual militia. The founder is a lady I am familiar with from protesting SB 276 in California in 2019. I’ve met her a few times and appreciate her story and the things she’s done.
Lol, they are definitely getting the smear campaign from the California press though!
I think my husband and I are going! Figured out our babysitting dilemma, sent in our application and my registration was confirmed, still waiting on his, but we are getting pretty excited!
We’re sort of broke though so we’ll probably be staying in our truck, lol, not the hotel. Looking forward to meeting you all though!
That is very kind of you Dave, and thank you for the info. I will ask her. 🙂
Thank you all, I will look over theses and pass them on to her. Sketchypoodle, I agree, to me no job is worth it, but I am not her, and I am not in her shoes, so I can’t really judge. I’m just trying to help her in whatever way I can.
This is the problem with vax mandates though, they are going to disproportionately have a negative effect those of lower socioeconomic status. I have options and alternatives, many people don’t.
I’m looking at it more and it’s looking more and more affordable… how much will ammo be though?
I just received the email today too, I am very confused about what the course costs, it appears to be… nothing?
I’m also wondering what I should expect to pay for ammo. Right now we only own a .22 and a shotgun. I have a ton of .22 ammo, I’m not sure I can do the class with a .22 though. lol. We’ve been wanting to buy a 9 mm anyway so this might be the extra motivation we needed, but my husband and I would both be doing it if we were going to go, and I’m not sure if we can afford to buy two 9 mm’s and all the ammo we’d need for both of us.
I guess I’m trying to figure out if this is still in the real of possibility cost wise for us, lol. We’re both pretty young still, just exiting our 20’s, and while these are things I would like to invest in, I’m not sure if it is going to be foolish given our finances.
I’m not in Chicago, but since we’re talking meet ups I thought I’d add I’d be interested in meeting people too. We are in Northern CA (Nevada County) right now, transitioning to Idaho (Adam’s County) this fall. I’d especially love to make more Idaho connections as we’re going to be new.
