Firearm Safety Training

Firearm safety is very important to the continued success of any shooting program. Safety depends on the person handling the firearm and the training must start at your level. We hold several Extended Range Days during the summer and fall to complete the DNR's on-line classroom program.

  • If the attendee has a disability that we should be aware of, please let us know ahead of time so we can accommodate and make it a positive experience for the attendee. 

  • By law, no attendees are allowed to have a loaded firearm during the course, so if you are an adult attending or a parent that has a child attending, please do not bring any loaded firearms to the class including a permit to carry.

  • Please bring Lunch/beverage

  • There will be a section where attendees will need to crawl under a fence, so wear clothes that can get a little dirt on them.

Registration will start at 7:30 am.  A safety instructor will be outside to inspect firearms for those who are bringing them, please do not bring them into the building until the instructor has gone through them. They must be unloaded and in a case.  Registration will be in the Clubhouse where you will show proof of completion for the online portion, birth certificate, or driver's license, and sign off on the parental release/self-certification form.  The class itself will begin at 8:00 am with introductions, a quick video, and a short quiz, that is a review of what you went over in the online class.  Attendees will need to pass this before moving on to the rest of the class, so we ask parents to stay for about the first hour.  Parents can leave after that but are more than welcome to stay for the entire class with their child and even help out.  The class will wrap up about 2 pm.

At the end of class, attendees will get a signed form with a code to enter online and pay the $7.50 to receive/print out your firearm safety certificate.
