NEW SHOOTER WORKSHOPS

MCRGO is offering New Shooter Workshops at the 2021 Fall Firearms Festival. There is no cost to participate in the workshop. Participants should be at least 18 years old and either new to or inexperienced with firearms. MCRGO will supply .22 pistols for use at the workshops along with ammo, ear & eye protection. All you need to bring is yourself! Workshops are scheduled for 12 PM and 2 PM and are limited to 12 people each. Workshops last for 60 minutes. They include 30 minutes in the classroom covering gun safety and essential information for shooting a pistol. This will be followed by 30 minutes on the range shooting 20 rounds total per person. If you have a fear of guns, don’t worry! The .22 pistols have very little recoil. The workshops will be taught by MCRGO Instructor Chuck Bates with assistance from other MCRGO Instructors. To secure a spot, please email Brady at bradymsu616@gmail.com providing your full name and preferred time (12 PM or 2 PM). Walk-ins will be accepted as space permits.
