A: It is an event to introduce people to the shooting sports with a group of people who socialize together in another way like work, church, clubs, etc.
A: Shooting Socials are by invite only. Setting up a Shooting Social is easy! We do all the set-up and you just organize the group. We can accommodate groups between 5 and 18 people. People who are not legally permitted to possess a firearm like felons may not participate in these events.
A: Mentors are the volunteers who work with you, one-on-one, during these events. Mentors come from all backgrounds. They are experienced shooters who will show you how to shoot their personal firearm(s).
A: Yes, but please follow all local laws regarding the transport of firearms. Firearms should be brought to the range in a locked container, unloaded, and separate from ammunition.
