Mediocre educators tell.  Good educators explain.
Superior educators demonstrate.

A Big “Thank you” to Scott & Julie Peters, owners of RKA
Gun Gallery & Range, Plano, IL, for allowing IJPS Coaching
Staff, Phil, Dean, & Jim, to install six (6) LED 5000K (daylight),
light fixtures on the South Range (positions 1-6).  Coaches
Dean
