Action Training Group Meeting at Sportsman’s Warehouse in Spokane

Preparation then action!
On Friday, February 10, 2017 at 6:00 PM, the Action Training Group Inc. will meet at Sportsman’s Warehouse on North Division in Spokane. We invite anyone interested in our group to attend, ask questions and participate in the planning for upcoming events.

The Action Training Group has been presenting shooting events at Fernan Rod and Gun Club near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho since June, 2016.

We are now recruiting new members. A Charter Membership is $39.00. Sign up at Action Training Group. Membership will normally cut the price for each live-fire shooting event by $10.00 or more.

We are incorporated as an Idaho nonprofit. We have By-Laws in place. You can view the By-Laws at

Our PayPal function allows you to join by accessing our website and also make contributions. We invite interested individuals and groups to attend our business meeting scheduled for Friday, February 10th at 6:00 PM. The meeting is open to the public every month on the second Friday of the month. The ATG will be insured with NRA liability insurance in 2017 and we will start shooting again at one of the local indoor ranges in Spokane or North Idaho soon.

Please go to the Calendar of Events to confirm the website for the date place and time of meetings. We meet at Sportsman’s Warehouse in the back of the store.

We now have a Mission Statement in place with clear, measurable objectives:

MISSION STATEMENT- We are a group of citizens that have come together in order to be prepared for action when a crisis arises. We encourage each other to anticipate threats, think about our actions and the consequences of what we do- or fail to do- and we train accordingly.

ACTION- We must take action. because we cannot prepare by simply thinking and talking about what we see happening;

TRAINING- because we know that preparations fail without continual training;

GROUP- Because we live in communities and cannot prepare & train adequately unless we work together.

OBJECTIVES-We exist for the purpose of giving participants monthly opportunities to continue sharpening skills and to develop a regular schedule of events that includes Reality Based Training, to develop situational awareness and instill skill in the use of arms while maintaining a mindset that fosters defense of ourselves and others.

What do we mean by REALITY BASED TRAINING? The mind is our primary tool for self-defense. Firearms are also a tool but the risks of carrying a firearm outweigh the benefits without constant training in safe handling, storage and use. Reality Based Training is beyond what is available to most gun owners without a great deal of expense. We recommend the various professional shooting academies that are available but regular practice is the key to obtaining proficiency.

We invite interested groups and individuals to contact us and consider serving on one of our volunteer planning committees. Promoting respect for law enforcement, gun safety and preparedness are just some of the values fostered by the numerous activities presently under discussion.
