NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- More than 300 first-time shooters came out to the six ranges in the Sacramento, Calif., and Miami areas this past weekend to attend NSSF’s First Shots events.
The 20 filled-to-capacity seminars in these two areas were yet another demonstration of the growing interest in gun ownership across America.
“A sincere thank you to the ranges, their staff, volunteers and participants for making these events a huge success and a great day at the ranges,” said Tisma Juett, NSSF’s First Shots manager.
“First Shots also thanks Remington for providing all of the .22 ammo and Birchwood-Casey for the Shoot N See targets.”
Miami-area ranges that took part were Hollywood Rifle & Pistol Club, Arizona Shooting Range, and National Armory. Sacramento-area ranges that held events were Sacramento Valley Shooting Center, El Dorado Shooting Range, and United Revolvers Club. Learn more about First Shots at nssf.org/firstshots.
