First Shots working…

The N.S.S.F.’s  First Shots program is working remarkably.  Recently, a local area mommy group participated in a First Shops workshop at a local range.

Turned out a friend of mine attended with this mommy group. She had a blast. She learned what we gun owners already know – shooting is FUN!!!!

Programs like these help introduce people to firearms, and garner more firearm owning Americans, by helping to reduce the initial outlay in experiencing firearms.

I believe the growth of this program will greatly affect our community. In part, by the fact that it will bring in a lot more non-traditional gun owners (which we need).
