First Shots

First Shots Chair: Bryon Fessler -

First Shots seminars are the perfect opportunity for members to invite new shooters to come to the range for some free safety instruction and supervised shooting. Invite your family, co-workers, neighbors, friends, relatives, and anyone who wants a safety refresher to a First Shots seminar. We offer rifle, handgun, and shotgun seminars and they are open to the public. All firearms, ammunition, targets, and eye/ear protection are provided free of charge. Youth shooters must be at least 9 years old. Weekdays are easier to schedule than weekends given all the Club’s matches and events. Seminars are scheduled based on participant and volunteer availability so please email to sign up. 

First Shots

When it comes to learning about shooting and firearms ownership, not knowing how or where to start can be an intimidating hurdle.  Since its beginning in 2005, the First Shots program has provided:


An educational introduction to the safe and recreational use of firearms


A clear understanding of the local requirements for owning and purchasing a firearm.


A chance to give shooting a try with un-intimidating .22lr guns and ammunition provided by the host range.

Whether you're an experienced or new shooter, you'll find more than 100 videos on everything from how to sight in a rifle to techniques on how to become a better handgun shooter on NSSF's YouTube channel

The NSSF website also contains Rules of Firearm Safety and free printable targets. Click here for more resources for new shooters.
