About the Blog

Educating fellow Jews about the sporting and defensive use of firearms. Especially Jews in North America, too many of whom are instilled with the belief that guns aren't for nice Jewish boys and girls.

If you know of notable Jewish shooters that should be documented on the blog, even if it is only at the local club level, I am happy to report and profile them. And don't be shy if that person to be documented is you! Please drop me a line at jewishmarksman at gmail dot com. Also follow me on twitter @JMarksmanship.

Bullets & Bagels Jewish Gun Club Meetup this Month!

I recently received an email from a California-based Jewish Gun Club.  Check it out:

We are pleased to introduce a unique and exciting new club to the Orange and Los Angeles County Jewish Community.  Bullets & Bagels is the first noshing, networking and shooting club for Jews!

Our vision is to encourage Jews to learn the value of firearms as a sport and social medium, as well as how to use them to defend ourselves, our families and our communities. We seek to take the fear out of firearms by educating our members in safety and self-defense techniques. At the same time, we emphasize the various sporting aspects of firearms. It is all done in a supervised, friendly, supportive environment of fellow Jews. The club holds bimonthly events, featuring fascinating guest speakers. Among them are rabbis, historical figures, local and federal law enforcement representatives, certified firearms instructors, and other experts.  At our events, we provide great nosherei, kibitzing and networking. We welcome all ages, genders, religious denominations and those with all levels of firearms experience from first-time beginners to consummate experts.

Which brings me to the point of this letter. As our goal is to dramatically increase our membership base over the following year, I sincerely invite and encourage you to share the news about Bullets & Bagels with your readership on your blog. Those who are interested can learn more at www.BulletsnBagels.com.

Our next event takes place Sunday, August 23, 2015 at Raahauges Range in Corona California. We are co-hosting the event with Israel Weapons Industries makers of the famous Tavor close quarters combat rifle.  We will be auctioning one Tavor rifle off proceeds earmarked for the FIDF.  Springfield Armory, Leica Optics, Pelican Cases and City Girl Prepper will be there too.

 Those interested may sign up using our “SIGN-UP” form on the club website, and mention their interest in attending the June event.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call either me at 424-227-2797 or email at info@bulletsnbagels.com. Thank you for your consideration, and don't worry —— kosher food is provided!  We hope to see you there, too.

B’ Shalom,

Fred R Kogen, M.D.
