First Shots April 16

March 17th, 2011 Posted in Classes, Tactical

Back by popular demand, the “First Shots” training will be at the range Saturday April 16th. We have a 10 am session just for kids & parents (or grandparents/uncles/aunts, etc). Kids need to be at least 10 years old, and accompanied by an adult. This is a rifle shooting class, we’ll use .22 single-shot rifles. If time permits at the end of the session, we’ll introduce .22 handguns, but the emphasis is rifle shooting. Perfect for the very beginning rifle shooter. This will be a fun class with kind and patient instructors. No charge, but you must reserve a place in class by calling the range first 353-4884.

At 2pm the same day, we’ll have a pistol-shooting class open for everyone.

First Shots is an introductory program for brand-new shooters, or for folks who haven’t shot a firearm 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. (The kids & parents program is free, but reserve your place early!) 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 an hour on the shooting range with a certified instructor close by. Cost is only $5 (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 a spot.
