NOVABAA's Day at the Range
NOVABAA is pleased to put on programming for the benefit of its members. While perhaps an event like this is untypical for a minority bar association to host, we believe it’s important that people of color are familiarized with the basics of firearm handling and safety as well as comfort in using them.
NOVABAA’s Day at the Shooting Range will serve a two-fold purpose: (1) gun safety and (2) the completion of the concealed carry coursework for those that are interested. The day will be bifurcated into two separate events, separated by lunch.* The morning session will be 2.5 hours and will include 1 hour of firearm safety classes and 1.5 hours of range time. There will be multiple trainers in the classroom session guiding students into the do’s and don’ts of firearm handling and gun safety. After the classroom session, students will then go to the range and practice using various types and styles of firearms on the firing range. The cost for the Gun Safety / Range Training will be $50 per person, plus the cost of ammunition.*
For those that either are more advanced and don’t need the basics of gun safety class, or for those who have taken the gun safety class and want to obtain their concealed carry permit, the afternoon session will be 4 hours, and will take place after lunch. It will cover all of the required material in a classroom setting. The cost for the Concealed Carry Training will be $150 per person.
Admittedly this event is somewhat off the beaten path of the typical types of programming NOVABAA’s historically promoted. Nevertheless, we believe it’s an incredible opportunity for those of us who may have always wanted to take a gun safety class for personal or family safety reasons. Similarly for those interested in getting their concealed carry permit.
We hope that you take advantage of this opportunity. Our day at the range will be Sunday April 24, 2022, at Silver Eagle Group in Ashburn, Virginia. If you’re interested, please register here (only dues paid members may register). Once you’ve registered, you will be contacted to determine if you are interested in doing the Gun Safety Class, the Concealed Carry Class, or both.
We look forward to seeing you there!
* - If anyone is interested in sponsoring to defray the costs of ammunition to your NOVABAA brothers and sisters during the gun safety class, you may do so at https://www.novabaa.org/donate. They indicate that the cost of ammunition is approximately $25-30 per box of 50. Contact Rex if you are interested.
** - we may be seeking to have a CLE during lunch, as well. If you have a recommendation, please feel free to contact me.
