California Marksmanship and Advocacy Workshop

13 days until event begins

What you will learn

The reason most people have no experience with firearms and aren't effective advocates for the Second Amendment is the same reason most people don't get involved in politics or take leadership roles: they they're afraid they'll get hurt, they think politics and guns are scary, and they think it's more complicated than it actually is. All of these concerns stem from a lack of experience.

The Marksmanship and Advocacy Workshop will demystified firearms and how to fight for the Second Amendment.

What attendees learn:
  • Firearm safety, care, and loading
  • Local and state regulations, including on how to legally purchase a firearm in California
  • Beginner marksmanship
  • How to prepare and clean up a range
Safety precautions

  • Attendees under 21 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian
  • All attendees must agree to all our liability and safety requirements
  • All attendees must agree not to hold any individuals, organizers, instructors, sponsoring organizations, the owners of the businesses or ranges we work with liable for injury, death, or damage to personal property
  • All attendees are provided with basic eye and hearing protection and encouraged to invest in their own, as well as required to wear closed-toed shoes,
  • All attendees are prohibited from using or bringing any alcohol or other drugs, during or before the event.
  • Always treat the firearm as if it's loaded, even if you're sure it's not
  • Never point a firearm at anyone or anything except the actual targets downrange. Never point at anything you don't intend to destroy
  • Keep fingers off the trigger until ready to fire with the firearm pointed downrange
