This will be an excellent, safe opportunity to get training and shoot in a private environment. Whether you have firearms experience or not, we welcome you to join us! We will provide a safety orientation where safe firearms handling will be demonstrated and range rules will be explained; we want you to be safe and comfortable with firearms before the shooting begins. All shooting will be supervised by experienced shooters. If you do not have equipment, we can provide all equipment necessary. If you have your own safety glasses, hearing protection, or shotgun you are encouraged to bring it. We will work with shotguns (weather permitting) and shoot at moving clay targets which provide instant visual feedback (they explode in a very gratifying manner).
This event will be at a private location (the Rockford Skeet & Trap Club) with only VCB men and a club safety officer. You are invited no matter your experience level, from the non-hunter/shooter to the accomplished hunter/shooter. The cost is $15-$45 (depending on how much you shoot) and loaded with fun.
We do need a head count for equipment, so please let us know if you wish to sign-up. If you are bringing your own shotgun, there are restrictions on the shotshells used at this club, please talk with Adam or Mike before buying shells for this event. Also, for those interested in maximizing their fellowship, there is a carpooling and dinner option (see timing and places below). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mike or Adam.
