First Shots

Are you ready to take your First Shots? The biggest challenge for new shooters is getting started. We know the world of firearms can be intimidating and many people are anxious about firing a gun for the first time. That’s why we offer our First Shots class.

What to expect:

  • Rules: You’ll learn the basic safety rules for when handling a firearm and you’ll get an overview of Shooters World’s range rules and standard range commands.
  • Readiness: You’ll walk away with a basic understanding of grip, stance, aiming, and sight alignment. You’ll also learn how and when to safely pull the trigger for the first time.
  • Range: You’ll take to the range for your first ever shots on a target using one of our 10/22 Ruger .22LR rifles with 5 rounds of ammunition. Here you’ll get to experience the thrill of shooting in a calm, safe environment with the supervision of our trained instructors.

This course is great for families, first timers, or anyone who has been reluctant to give firearms a try because they have been too nervous. Sit in for the class and if you decide you aren’t ready to take your first shots, you are welcome to opt out! Range time is optional. This is your opportunity to take it all in at your own pace and in a safe environment. Book your seat today and come and enjoy your First Shots with us!
