Guns basics over a light dinner. Get completely comfortable before you head to a live fire environment. Learning the basics on the range can be counter productive, guns are going off, you have eye and ear protection on, communication is a struggle, and anxiety levels are high. We suggest relaxing in a nice quiet intimate group over a light dinner and refreshments and leaving with all the knowledge and skill sets necessary to be comfy on your first trip to the range.
This meetup is designed for participants who either own guns they don’t handle often or that would like to shoot but are intimidated with handling the gun without understanding it’s functionality. Participants will handle a variety of guns. Eye dominance testing and dry fire practice ensure that by the time you show up to the range you are comfortable, confident, safe, and knowledgeable.
