We understand getting youth proper instruction on the range is essential both for their short term and long term safety. We are happy to offer a variety of options for kids of different ages and skill levels.
February 21 will be youth night at HW Range. This event will exclusively be on our rifle range for 7-12 year old kids with their parent/guardian. Only kiddos will be firing guns during this event and only age appropriate caliber rifles (at the managers discretion). Parent/guardian must be within arms reach of kids when they are at the bench. This is your opportunity to bring your young people to the range in a bit more relaxed environment. If you have an older kiddo with a larger caliber let the staff know and they will seat you further away from the 25 yard targets/younger shooters.
Cost is only $5 Event is 6:00-7:30PM
If you need us to private instruction we can do that too with one of our instructors. We usually recommend young people start with .22 rimfire rifle versus a pistol if they’ve never fired anything before. If you are just interested in a lesson on firearm safety without the young person shooting we can arrange that as well. Our private lessons can be scheduled here on our website.
Youth Awareness Program Description (this will come back soon)
Youth Awareness Program – This safety seminar is a great opportunity for any age but specifically designed for the younger folks. We start in our classroom utilizing the NRA’s Eddie Eagle program including different hands on activities for the students based on age and ability. Class concludes on a private portion of our range with the instructor demonstrates the damage firearms can cause by shooting either a pumpkin or watermelon (depending on the season). Only the instructor will be firing the firearms during this seminar. The demonstration has proven effective for young people, giving them the valuable visual and solidifying the need for safety at all times. Sign up on our training schedule page, group classes. Email Tammy@HWRange.com with questions.
If you have any specific needs that cannot be met by the above options send us an email, we will look into how our team can best accommodate you and get back with you as soon as possible. firstname.lastname@example.org
