We emphasizes firearm safety in every aspect of our offerings. Every new member is required to take an NRA sponsored firearm safety course, offered every other Saturday morning at the Club’s air conditioned training center. From that beginning, every Range, every member, every program, and every competition is focused on safe firearm handling. We have fun – safely!
