Description: Classroom lecture
Truckee Meadows John Brown Gun Club is an all volunteer community defense and emergency response group with the mission of providing security and training services to groups and individuals of marginalized populations. As far-right and white supremacist violence is on the rise, it is more important than ever to learn to use all available tools to defend ourselves and our communities.
Truckee Meadows John Brown Gun Club's Community Range Day is an opportunity for members of all communities, who have little or no firearms experience, to learn the basics of safe firearm use with hands-on training and practice. This is not an opportunity for community members who already possess firearms experience, or are members of other gun clubs, to socialize with us as this is not social event.
Our community range days are open to all community members aged 18 and older. To participate in our hands-on range day, all first time participants are required to attend our Firearms 101 Workshop.
In order to ensure everyone is getting the best instruction, and to provide a safe environment for those who are participating, we limit the number of participants at our community range days.
All Truckee Meadows John Brown Gun Club trainings are completely free of charge. We ask that all participants to please consider a small $10 - $20 donation for our time and ammunition costs. We'd appreciate it.
