*** NCRGC receives $2,500 grant from NSSF ***

That's right, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) graciously awarded $2,500 to the Club for the First Shots program. The Club has partnered with NSSF for many years now and we have provided First Shots seminars to almost 500 students. Thank you so much NSSF for everything that you do for the shooting sports.

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:

EDUCATE

An educational introduction to the safe and recreational use of firearms

 

(1.5 hours)

TRAIN

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

SHOOT

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

 

(1.5 hours)

First shots is a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) that offers the public an opportunity to learn the rules and requirements of firearm ownership along with comprehensive information on firearm safety, shooting sports opportunities, individual and group training, and range access. The first part of the seminar includes about 90 minutes of introductory information (e.g., firearm shooting, range information, basic instruction). The second part of the seminar includes about 90 minutes of hands-on activities (e.g., range commands, live fire). There is no examination or certificates and this seminar does not qualify you to apply for a concealed carry permit. All firearms, ammunition, targets, eye/ear protection, etc. are provided free of charge. First Shots seminars are open to the public. 

Please email firstshots@ncrgc.org to sign up for a future seminar at this Club. Youth shooters must be at least 9 years old.

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
