Join us for a Seminar and Shooting Camp at Hillsdale College. This innovative program combines self-defense topics and expert handgun and shotgun training with short lectures on the liberal arts, the U.S. Constitution, and free-market economics. All shooting activities will be held at Hillsdale College’s 105-acre John Anthony Halter Shooting Sports Education Center. Shooters of all experience levels are welcome.
