Basic Long Gun Safety & Responsibility

Rifles and shotguns are deeply ingrained in our culture. They are important tools for military and law enforcement, and for private citizens used for hunting, shooting sports, and self defense. In this course, InSights Training Center will provide you with the foundational knowledge and skills for safe and responsible handling and ownership of a long gun. This course will incorporate both hands-on skill development as well as information about safety, ownership, and legalities. The training will be conducted in a safe, fun, and supportive environment. Whether your goal is gaining solid knowledge of safe firearms handling or preparing to purchase a rifle or shotgun, Basic Long Gun Safety and Responsibility will give you the information you need.

In this class, you will learn to handle rifles and shotguns safely, load and unload them properly, shoot accurately, understand the laws concerning their use and ownership, and make a more informed decision as to whether you want to own a firearm.

We provide everything: all the guns, ammunition, and necessary equipment for the course.

Basic Long Gun Safety and Responsibility should be considered a minimum for anyone who owns a rifle or shotgun or lives in a household that has firearms. Teenagers are welcome if attending with an adult.
