A Taste of Shooting

January 4, 2020 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Are you curious about guns? Would you like to experience shooting?

This course is for curious people who don’t own a gun and who have little or no familiarity with firearms. Our coaches will safely lead you through the experience of shooting a gun for the first time.

We provide the firearms that you will get to shoot:

  • 22LR rifle,
  • 9mm handgun
  • AR15 rifle, and
  • 12 gauge shotgun.

The course includes a very short introduction to safe gun handling and your time on the shooting range will be closely supervised by our experienced shooting coaches.

By the end of this course you will be ready to make an informed decision about becoming a gun owner and whether your first gun will be a rifle, pistol, or shotgun.

There are two things to be prepared for that are always a bit of a surprise for new folks: Guns are loud! Way louder than they seem on TV. That’s why we will be wearing hearing protection. And it’s going to feel scary at first just seeing a gun on the table.

What to bring:

  • Appropriate clothes: dress for the weather, wear comfortable clothes-toed shoes, and avoid exposed necklines if possible.
  • A baseball cap if you have one: this will help keep sun out of your eyes and ejected casings out of your face.
  • Corrective lenses if you need them to see clearly.
  • Your drivers license or other ID.
Basic Fee $50.00
