Gun ownership doesn’t stop at buying a gun. As Americans, we have the right to own a gun to protect our person, family, and property, but that right also comes with the responsibility of knowing how to use it. We at Calibers take that responsibility seriously, and want to educate gun owners about how to take firearm use and storage seriously as well. Are you confident in your level of gun training? Find out why investing in gun training creates a better environment for all of us.
We don’t take gun ownership lightly, and neither should you. Why is it important to invest in a firearms training class?
First and foremost, with great power comes great responsibility. As Americans, we are one of only three countries in the world with the constitutional right to own firearms. Having the ability to possess a lethal weapon means that we should know how to use and store it safely.
When it comes to firearms, ignorance can cause severe and/or irreversible damage, especially in young and curious hands. Do you have little ones in your household? Approximately 4.6 million American children have access to at least one unlocked and loaded firearm. Tragically, this contributes to around 350 accidental shootings by youth in our country annually. Proper training and storage makes all the difference in preventing these types of accidents for you, your family, and your community.
None of us are strangers to tragedies in the news–whether accidental or malicious. When even one gun owner is irresponsible, it affects us all. Don’t contribute to the problem: make sure you know how to properly use and store your firearm so we can avoid further pushback against our 2nd Amendment right.
Don’t forget about the “learn” in our motto, “Shop. Learn. Play.” It’s our mission to educate prospective and established gun owners in a fun and safe environment. Calibers offers a wide range of gun safety courses, such as:
Gun safety is essential for keeping you, your family, and your community safe and healthy. There’s no replacement for attending a firearm safety course, but here are a few tips that are always handy to know.
