Free Community Clinics Aim to Bridge Gap between Gun Ownership and Development of Effective Defense Skills
Frederick, MD -(AmmoLand.com)- According to a recent study conducted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the majority of first time gun owners (58.1%) purchase firearms for self-defense.
Heritage Training and Shooting Center, a full-service personal protection training center, shooting range and firearms retail store that focuses on safety and education, is seeking to bridge the gap between the purchase of firearms for personal protection and the development of defensive skills needed for firearms to be an effective protection tool.
As a way to increase awareness for safe and responsible gun ownership tactics, the Center is launching its “Arm Yourself with Experience” community safety initiative. The initiative kicks-off on October 8 with a series of free clinics throughout the day focused on self-defense tactics and responsible gun ownership. The center plans to continue to offer free clinics throughout the year.
“A lot of people purchase firearms for personal defense, but don’t regularly fire the gun or take a class to learn defensive skills. This creates a false sense of security and leaves them unprepared to respond to a threatening situation,” commented James LaFleur, President of Heritage Training and Shooting Center. “Our goal is to reach out to the community and provide free education and training to help develop the skills needed for personal defense. This is an opportunity to educate shooters of all skill levels about safe and responsible gun ownership practices.”
The first “Arm Yourself with Experience” community clinic will take place on October 8th at Heritage Training and Shooting Center from 11 am to 3 pm. During this time, visitors will be able to participate in several clinics including, Situational Awareness, Defensive Long Gun and Defensive Handgun.
