Youth Handgun Safety
January 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$49.99
GAT GUNS has a class designed for young shooters, ages 8 through 14
If you want your child to learn firearms responsibility, safety, and proper shooting technique, this is a great group class for a nominal fee. The class is taught by NRA certified instructors. These classes will be held on varying Thursdays, each month from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The class is limited to 11 students. Classes must have 5 students registered five days prior to the class date or the class will be cancelled and students can be transferred to another date. See the Training Calendar for dates. To register for the class, just click on the class. Payment is by credit card.
Each child must be supervised by a parent at all times. FOID cards are not required.
The class is 2 hours long consisting of 1 hour in the classroom and up to 1 hour on the range. The content of each class is:
- Promotion and demonstration on the safe handling of guns on the range
- Proper grip, sight picture, stance, breathing, and trigger control
- Live fire at paper targets with a Ruger SR-22 .22 caliber handgun
- How to deal with guns in the home
The cost of the class covers both child and parent and includes:
Each child will receive a wallet size card indicating that they have taken this training at GAT GUNS. With this card, when accompanied by a parent with a valid FOID card, they will be able to shoot in our range from age 8. Without the card, the minimum age for the range is 14. When coming in to shoot, children can only shoot the parent’s guns – they cannot shoot a rental gun.
Each student will receive a decorative named certificate of completion for the course.
To pass the course, students must show an acceptable level of safety and proficiency as determined by the instructor.
