NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- First Shots is a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation that introduces new people to the sport of target shooting.

In fact, nearly 40,000 individuals have taken their first shots via the First Shots program, which started in 2005.

First Shots promotes firearm safety, education and responsibility at member ranges across the country in a safe, controlled and fun environment.

The next step in keeping new shooters engaged and wanting to come back to their host range to shoot is sometimes a challenge. That is why the NSSF created First Shots Second Round as a guide to give range owners some additional ideas to keep these new shooters returning to the range. From Try-A-Gun programs to learning to shoot long-range rifles, from learning the game of skeet to trying sporting clays, from drawing from a holster safely to beginning competitive shooting, great attractions can keep new shooters coming back to the range.

In that regard, First Shots is very happy to announce a great partnership with Comp-Tac Victory Gear, which has proudly agreed to work with First Shots to help safely introduce shooters to using a holster.

If you are planning on hosting First Shots Second Round events where you introduce people to safely drawing from a holster, you will want to check out this offer: If a range purchases holsters and mag pouches to use with their range firearms, Comp-Tac will donate additional product. Quantities are limited and will only apply to ranges that agree to host First Shots Second Round events using this special order form.
