Special Event Spotlight: Geeks With Guns

pcon2013 bb9q4803Geeks with Guns is an off-site event held early on Friday afternoon, just prior to the official opening of the con. It involves going to a nearby range, and consuming copious quantities of ammunition while noisily punching holes in various paper targets for a couple of hours.

It is a painless and fun way for newbies to learn the fundamentals of firearms safety, and for them (and experienced shooters) to have an opportunity to handle and shoot a variety of guns in the company of other Penguicon attendees. The cost is as low as we can make it, and the fellowship is excellent. We usually have Eric S. Raymond in attendance (who is the inventor of the event). There are also several other experienced firearms instructors present, and the unwavering emphasis is on safety.
