Family Firearms Safety Course  - This half-day course incorporates the entire family and teaches both parents and children how to safely include a firearm as part of a home protection plan. The class also introduces modern techniques to safely store firearms in the home, while still having quick access to them in case of an emergency.  Children also learn how to respond if they find themselves in a situation where they or their friends find a "hidden" firearm in their home, or the home of a friend.  After a short classroom session, the kids head to the range with certified firearms instructors and learn how to be safe and have fun on the range. Parents soon follow and get a chance to join their children on the range for a little family firearms fun shoot.
