First Shots April 20th

April 12th, 2013 Posted in Events


Another great class coming up on Saturday April 20th. The First Shots class is sponsored by the NSSF, National Shooting Sports Foundation. With their cooperation, we are able to offer a handgun class just for first-time shooters, taught by instructors who remember what it was like to be a first-timer. For just $10, new shooters will get to use our firearms, our ammunition, all safety gear, targets, range time, and refreshments!

These classes fill up fast! The morning class begins at 9 a.m. and is just for kids over the age of 12, but each kid must bring a parent who will also go through the same class. The afternoon class, beginning at 2pm, is for adults age 18 and over.

The biggest challenge for new shooters is getting started. First Shots makes getting started in shooting very easy — and, best of all, it’s only $10. At our First Shots seminar, you’ll receive an educational introduction to the safe and recreational use of firearms, a clear understanding of the local requirements for owning and purchasing a firearm, and a chance to give shooting a try!

The two-hour program includes an hour of classroom instruction, and time on the shooting range with a certified instructor close by. Cost is only $10 (kids free when accompanied by a paying parent), and covers all expenses, including use of the handgun, ammunition, instructional material, eye & ear protection, range time, and refreshments.

Our instructors are patient and kind, they remember how it was the first time they fired a firearm. After the class, the new shooter will know the safety aspects of shooting, how to sight a gun on the target, how to safely load, unload, and reload a firearm, and how to safely conduct themselves on the range.

Reservations are required, call the range at 353-4884 to reserve a spot. Class sizes are limited to ensure safety and good student-instructor ratios. These classes always fill  up early, so call ahead to register and save your spot.
