Youth Firearms Safety class

No one should be without the knowledge, skills, and attitude that it takes to safely own a firearm. -ESPECIALLY OUR CHILDREN !!

You can gun proof your home, but you really need to gun proof your children. The National Rifle Association's Youth Basic Pistol course is designed to teach our kids the proper way to be safe around handguns and also how to learn to shoot.

Besides, once they have the basic fundamentals of shooting, they can join you at a range, at a match, or any other competition.

Why not teach your children that fireams are just a tool that can be used for sport?

This course is taught by competent, fully certified, experienced instructors who have children of their own and who love their work. They all know the importance of starting out right; and they all want to help you build a solid foundation so that you will be able to fully enjoy the shooting sports for a long time.
