If you live within driving distance of Bradford, PA and don't have anything special planned for that weekend, please stop by and bring a lever action rifle or 2 or 3. Or if you want to just see what is going on, please come and observe. It is a lot of fun and it is a joy to behold seeing all those lever action rifles in one place and all those reactive steel targets . Pretty neat!
