A competition themed NRA Day event in Illinois

It's summer. The United States is warm all over - a little too warm in some places - and it's a great time to get out of the house and enjoy the outdoors.

One activity you can bring your sunglasses and sun screen to is an NRA Day event. These community activities are great opportunities for adults, kids, families, hunters, sportsmen, competitors, and basically everyone to have some fun learning more about, or getting better at, the shooting sports.

NRA Days are theme-based and each one provides exposure to a different side of competitive shooting. You aren't going to be sitting at a desk at an NRA Days. Events are hands-on and typically outdoors, meaning you can discover the shooting sports in a safe, controlled environment while working on your tan.

You'll be hard pressed to find friendlier people working and attending these events. If you've never been to one and are at all interested, see what's coming up in your area.

Here are your NRA Day events for July:
