Get Range Ready!

  • 6 days ago · 4:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

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.

This meetup is NOT designed to create accuracy in shooting performance. This is simply to familiarize participants with how the gun functions and teach basic safety. For technique development resulting in accuracy please attend a Technique Skill Development Lab, PistolCraft, or private package session. Presenter is an NRA Instructor & female firearms professional.
