NRA Days help families find fun at the range

A young man takes aim during an NRA Day event Are you going a little stir crazy after a long winter? Feel like you need to get yourself and the family outside to enjoy an exciting new activity in the fresh open air? Sounds like you've developed a case of Spring Fever. Well don't worry, because we have got the cure - an NRA Day.

Each spring, thousands of people load their families into the car and make the drive to an amusement park only to spend the day fighting the crowds — wasting their hard-earned time and money. Instead of spending the day walking miles through one of those parks, why not join the thousands of people who attend an NRA Day event each year and enjoy a fun-filled day learning a new skill such as shooting?

NRA Day events are happening all across the country at local clubs and ranges. Designed to introduce people to the fun and excitment of the shooting sports, an NRA Day event is the perfect opportunity to get out of the house and try something new. NRA Day events are themed and can range from competitive shooting, to hunting, to firearms training and much more. NRA Day volunteers are on hand at events to help you learn the ropes and all equipment is usually provided. Better yet, many NRA Day events are free or charge a nominal fee to cover supplies such as targets and ammunition.

So this spring, don't throw your money away at expensive amusement parks and spend your day waiting in long lines. Check out the NRA Day program website to learn more and to find an event in your area. Want to start your own NRA Day? NRA's Youth Programs Department has everything you need to get started. Just send an email to for more information!
