2014 marks the return of the ever-popular Newbie Shoot, and, as an added bonus, this year we will be incorporating an advanced shoot as well! Shaolin Rifleworks has stepped up to the plate to sponsor the Newbie Shoot, so that novice or brand new shooters can learn to use firearms in a safe environment, with experienced guides, FREE of charge!
Shooters MUST attend a brief (but mandatory) meeting outside the Media Room Friday morning at 10am sharp. We will discuss firearms safety in detail, and by 10:30am we will depart in a convoy for the Dalton Gang Shooting Club in Dalton, NH, about 15 minutes away.
Upon arrival at the Dalton range, shooters will be split up into groups, given another reminder of firearms safety rules, and then they will approach the firing lanes one at a time. We usually have 4-5 lanes open, with a Range Safety Officer attending each lane assisting shooters. Firearms and ear/eye protection will be provided to shooters at the firing line.
After completing their initial shooting experience, shooters will then be given the option to head over to the Shaolin Rifleworks lane, where "big guns" will be available for them to try out. The "big guns" lane will be a reasonably-priced pay-as-you-go lane. There may even be some...full-auto machine guns...available for your enjoyment :)
This event is suitable for shooters from ages 1 to 100, but if you're a young shooter, please bring a parent or other responsible adult individual along with you. The gracious owners of the Dalton Gang club usually make hot dogs, chips, and soda/water available to guests for a very reasonable price.
Firearms owners and experienced shooters are welcome at the shoot.
Please contact Matt Roach or Laird McSmith for more information, to donate, or to volunteer.
