Guns, 101. For those looking at getting a firearms licence or simply wanting to shoot a gun.

A fun, safe day learning how to handle firearms and shoot them safely.

Thanks again for the awesome day. I came away on such a high and a lot more confident working with and using the rifle.

Get started. The right way.

I know when you are getting into shooting, the idea of heading to a range can be a little intimidating. What kind of people go to a shooting range anyhow? Well - people like me. People like you.

There can be a little bit of a gap between applying for a licence and getting into shooting. If you have never handled an actual firearm before, it's understandable you would want a little extra guidance before heading out shooting.

The course is intended to fill the space that exists even before applying for a licence, or, after your application, but before you get your licence and pick your first firearm. Came along, meet some shooters, have some fun!

Great for the inexperienced and those looking to refine their skills, easy-going, no pressure & plenty of time for feedback and implementing changes to your technique. Well worthwhile.

April 2 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

For those who have never shot a gun before, or maybe a long time ago. A true, basic introduction to firearms.

Casual atmosphere, no pressure, lots of learning!

Rifle ranges and firearms can be understandably intimidating if you haven't been around them before. This course teaches range protocol and safe firearms handling - including live firing a selection of guns.

Kerry is one of the Firearms Safety Instructors for the Police and instructs and audits companies on their firearms policy and process.
