Let's practice shooting!

Beaverdam Range in South Carolina is a well-maintained public facility that isn't too far away. We can shoot any legal firearms we want. No targets are provided, so we must bring our own. I like "practical" targets - soda cans, milk jugs, old office equipment, etc. But everything we put out we must clean up. Luckily, there is a big trash bin there.

We'll want to get out early before it gets hot, and before the range fills up. Bring water & snacks. Carpooling is recommended. We'll meet at the WalMart on Bobby Jones, in the small parking lot next to Eyeglass World at 7:00AM.

You are welcome to bring whatever firearms you want to shoot. Sharing is highly encouraged.

Hearing and eye protection are HIGHLY recommended. This could be as simple as sunglasses and foam earplugs, but it's up to you. Experienced shooters will be wearing protection like this: https://bit.ly/2GPtL4f

We will go over the basic safety rules before loading anything. You can read them here: https://www.agirlandagun.org/training/4-rules-of-gun-safety/. We will also go over the basic operation of a public range (going "hot", going "cold" cease fires, etc.). Once that is done, we'll introduce & demonstrate each firearm we have from "least" to "most" - a .22 revolver on up.

This is a good event for: becoming more comfortable with firearms, "quick firing" (not allowed at indoor ranges), draw-n-shoot techniques (not allowed at indoor ranges.), and trying out a firearm before purchasing (if someone else brings what you want to try).

Note: there are no toilet facilities here. If you gotta go, it's a trek off into the woods. If you're worried, bring toilet paper (biodegradable preferred).

How to find us:Carpooling: I'll be driving a black Subaru wagon. At the Range: we'll choose the two tables at the far end, if possible.

Volleyball! This is where you bounce a ball back and forth over a net, and hope the opposing team isn't as good at it as you are. Please bring water (if you don't like drinking out of a fountain), a…
