First Shots Program Back!

October 19th, 2010 Posted in Classes


Our popular First Shots program is back at the range December 4th and 18th.

First Shots is an introductory program for brand-new shooters, or for folks who haven’t shot a handgun in a long time.

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 $5.

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 and hour on the shooting range with a certified instructor close by. Cost is only $5, 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 handgun. 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 handgun, and how to safely conduct themselves on the range.

We’ll have three sessions each day the 10 a.m. – noon session is for women only, and the sessions beginning at 1 pm and 4 pm are open to everyone. Youth who are at least 14 years old may attend if accompanied by a parent. Reservations are require, 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 a spot.
