Welcome!

Make Ready! is a common command at the shooting range. It is the time to safely prepare your handgun, rifle, or shotgun to fire. For a defensive shooter, either on or off the range, it is time to be prepared and ready for action. For a beginning shooter on the range for the first time, it is an exciting moment of anticipation; the build up to their first shot. Whatever your skill level, you always have to “make ready”. The Make Ready! mission is to support the shooting community, both novice and veteran, through positive outreach and training. Safety is paramount in everything we do. There is much to learn from each course and we always have fun.

Private instruction is available. Please see the Course Descriptions tab for further information.

NRA certified training courses include:

  • Home Firearm Safety (non-shooting course)
  • FIRST Steps Pistol Orientation
  • Basic Pistol Shooting Course
  • FIRST Steps Rifle Orientation
  • Basic Rifle Shooting Course
  • FIRST Steps Shotgun Orientation
  • Basic Shotgun Shooting Course
  • Personal Protection in the Home
  • Personal Protection Outside the Home

The core of every Make Ready! course is safety:

  1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
  2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
  3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.

Facebook page for Make Ready!

I was urged by a student to create a Facebook page for Make Ready!. I will admit, Facebook is not really my thing, but it does seem like a good idea. I have been playing around with it for a while and it will be a bit easier to update than the website, so maybe I can get information and updates out a little quicker. You can search Facebook for “makereadynw”.

Next FIRST Steps Pistol Class: November 28th

As you may know, there is a regularly scheduled FIRST Steps Pistol class on the last Saturday of each month at the Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club, unless there is a club event. There is such an event in September so there will be no class on September 26th. The Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club will be hosting a large Trap-shooting (shotgun) event that weekend.

Also of note is the regular class date in October is the 31st, which of course is Halloween. Due to that event, there will be no FIRST Steps Pistol class on that day.

The next scheduled FIRST Steps Pistol class will be Saturday, November 28th, 2015. I look forward to seeing you there, if not in private lessons before!
