Looking for a good way to introduce your son or daughter to the lifelong habits of safe gun handling and the basic concepts of marksmanship? This class is where they need to be!

Explore Gun Safety & Technique I is a 4 week course designed for youth ages 8-10, but open to those up to 15. Youth 7 & under are not permitted. BB guns (.177 cal) used for all class exercises (equipment provided). Air guns are a tried-and-true non-threatening way to teach gun basics and a great building-block to becoming a safe and competent shooter with larger caliber equipment.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to stay & learn how to help guide their new shooter.

Cost for 4 week series: $20/student

Registration closes May 26th. Minimum 4 students required to hold class. Participants must be pre-registered, no walk-ins allowed.
