Fairfax, Virginia - This past Saturday the NRA Range participated in the inaugural National Take Your Daughter To The Range Day, a nationwide event encouraging parents to bring their little girls to shooting ranges to both introduce them to the sport and promote firearms safety.
Even though the focus was on young women, the event hoped to be a family affair and welcomed little boys as well.
Lynne Finch, NRA Certified Instructor and Co-Founder/President of the newly formed program, used social media and spoke with range owners to raise interest in the event. All it took was a little information to get people excited and offering to help.
Starting in January, the word spread across the country and it soon seemed like anyone and everyone had June 9, marked on their calendars.
So how'd it go?
