Get out and enjoy the shooting sports this fall with the NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - The holiday season is upon us and with it comes cooler weather. There may be more and more people sporting coats outside to keep warm but that doesn't stop Brownells/NRA Days from being held.

NRA Days are a great way to get outside and see how good your aim is (or isn't). They're held all over the country and give everyone in the community, from kids to adults, some outdoor fun with the shooting sports.

Not every NRA Day is the same. Each one is based on a theme that dictates what activities are held and the firearms present. A NRA Day one weekend could be completely different from one a week later in the same state. Regardless of the theme, though, you'll definitely have a great time getting some hands-on opportunities with firearms and meeting other shooting sports enthusiasts. Seasoned pros, newbies, it doesn't matter. Everyone has fun in the safe, controlled, beautiful environment.

Do NRA Days sound right up your alley? Check the NRA Day website to see where future events are coming up or contact your local range and see if they'd be interested in putting one on - or organize one yourself.

While it's true there are more NRA Days in the warmer weather, that doesn't stop them from popping up once the weather's cool, especially down south. There's only one NRA Day coming up in the next few weeks, so you better hurry to sign up if you're in the Louisiana area.

Youth Sportsfest Events
Youth participants are introduced to the fun and excitement of shooting sports in a safe, positive, and educational environment. Each SportsFest has its own specialized program focus based on the resources, expertise, and facilities at the sponsor's disposal.

Want to learn more about NRA Days? Contact NRA Day Program Coordinator Claudia Olsen at or 703-267-1597 for more information. Remember, NRA Days can be tailored to the needs of your club, community or based on your resources.

Not only can you introduce new folks and families to the shooting sports, but you can show off the programs and activities offered at your club or range. It's a win-win.
