Give It A Shot This Fall

GON Outdoor Kids September 2020

GON Staff | August 31, 2020

Three years ago, WRD introduced their “Give It A Shot” program. Since that time, nearly 300 first time or novice shooters have been introduced to safe firearm or archery equipment handling and proper orientation with either pistols, rifles, shotguns or archery equipment. These classes are open to men and women age 12 years old and up and focus on those with little to no experience in operating a firearm or archery equipment. Upon completion, participants will understand, and can demonstrate, how to safely handle, operate, maintain and store a firearm or bow.

The Give It A Shot courses are designed to provide a hands-on introduction to a specific type of firearm or archery equipment. Each course is approximately three hours long and includes classroom and range time learning to shoot both revolvers and semi-automatic pistols in the handgun class, a specific model of shotgun at a moving target in the shotgun class, a specific type of rifle with different sights at a stationary target in the rifle class or specialized archery equipment which is adjustable to almost every shooter in the archery class.

Students learn safe gun handling, parts and operation of the firearm, ammunition, shooting fundamentals, cleaning the firearms and are provided recommendations for continued opportunities for skill development. Archery students learn safety, operation, overview of equipment, shooting fundamentals and care of equipment.

Attendees will only use firearms or bows provided by WRD. Participants will not need or be able to use personal firearms at this event.
