Basic Safety classes are currently scheduled for May 24, June 20 and August 1, 2020. Classes provide information as to basic safety rules for safe firearms use, as well as specific information as to how to safely load and unload various popular firearms, the differences and similarities between rifles, handguns and shotguns, and some of the history involved. These discussions will take place in little grove of trees just south of the parking lot located at the main office. The class will conclude on the range, with an opportunity to try out various popular firearms, all under the supervision of certified instructors. These classes are offered at no charge. No FOID is required. Participants should dress according to the weather, however, please do not wear sandals. Eye and ear protection is required. Younger students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. A waiver is required.
