Family fun and firearms safety across the country at NRA Days

Seminole County Gun and Archery Association - NRA Day participants

Fairfax, Virginia - Now that it's May and much of the country is enjoying warm(ish) weather, why not get outside and enjoy some shooting sports?

One great weekend activity is taking part in an Brownells/NRA Day. Put together by people in your community, NRA Days are family-oriented events for Second Amendment supporters of all ages to have some safe outdoor fun.

NRA Days all have the same goal of shooting sports fun, but not each one is the same. They're based on themes that dictate 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. But you'll still have a fun time and meet great people. Whether you're a seasoned pro or a first-timer, you're guaranteed to enjoy the experience.

Sound fun, don't they? You can 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. If you're still not having luck, you could always organize one yourself.

We're always getting info on new NRA Days and updating the list, so don't get discouraged if you don't see anything in your area.

Here's what we have so far for May:
