ISRA Events

There's a Whole World of Events for Friends and Members of ISRA

The ISRA sponsors events that supports the advocacy of Illinois gun-owners’ rights. We also train gun-owners to be as proficient as possible in the safe use of a firearm.

Annually we host the Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day, also known as “IGOLD.”

People from all over the state assemble at the Capitol at the annual IGOLD, to lobby their legislators to support their rights as law abiding gun owners.

We host a variety of other events, such as our  annual “Sighting-In Day.”

Sighting In Day aids gun-owners in assuring that their firearms are perfectly sighted for their hunting, recreation and competition needs.

In addition, we post events that our affiliate clubs and leagues offer to expose our members to additional levels of competition and expert marksmanship.  We invite you to peruse the calendar events that meet your schedule and interests

Our annual Marksmanship 101 Rifle and Pistol Courses will  be held at the ISRA Range in Bonfield, Oct. 1-2, 2022.

Popular Events

“IGOLD”, “NRA Day at the Range” and “Sighting-In-Day” are great events for those who are interested in gun rights, firearm proficiency and safety. If you have suggestions for other events you would find useful, feel free to communicate those to us.

Raffles and Campaigns

The events we host here at ISRA take a great deal of dedication by our staff and volunteers. It also takes funding to carry out these great programs for the gun owners of Illinois.

To help fund these events, we offer a number of raffles throughout the year that offer great opportunities to win handguns and gun equipment. Watch for these opportunities to be announced throughout the year.
