Seminole County Gun and Archery Association - NRA Day participants

A lot of NRA Days are being held across the country in June. These events are great opportunities for adults, youth, families, hunters, sportsmen, competitors – literally everyone – to join other members of their community and become more familiar with the world of shooting sports.

NRA Days are constructed around a theme and provide exposure to the different activities available in shooting sports. NRA Days don't just list information, there's plenty of hands on activities for participants to discover the shooting sports in a safe, controlled environment.

Events are always a big hit and full of extremely friendly and helpful people. Don't be afraid to bring the whole family because there's something for everyone.

Take a look at what's happening all over the country during the rest of June:
