New shotgun owners are encouraged to take the “FIRST step” of shotgun training. The key to successful shotgun shooting is a good foundation in basics for the beginner and solid fundamentals for the novice and intermediate student. This classes are held at two convenient locations – Capital City Clays or Copperhead Creek Shooting Club. It is designed to provide hands-on introduction on the safe handling and proper orientation of one shotgun model. This class will teach you the basic shooting skills, this is not a complete course in the traditional sense of the word. It does provide a thorough introduction to shotgun safety, handling and shooting skills. This course is ideal for those who want to shoot skeet, sporting clays or participate in bird hunting.
