Everybody knows a log cabin just ain't the same without guns and good ole' fashioned gun safety. And where better to learn and practice gun safety than with the nation's oldest civil rights organization? That's right, this month the Log Cabin Republicans of DC and Virginia are meeting up at the gun range at the headquarters of National Rifle Association in Fairfax, Virginia.
Space is limited, so if you're interested, RSVP as soon as possible. The closest Metro station is Vienna on the Orange Line, and you can rideshare from there. (If you have never used Uber or Lyft before, please message Rek LeCounte for help.) If you need or can provide a car ride, please let us know.
This outing will involve live shooting from actual guns with actual rounds on actual targets. After a course in NRA range rules, new attendees will get certified for the NRA range, which you can keep for life. You will also have an opportunity to become an NRA member, if you are not already.
The price for the evening will be $25 for Log Cabin members and $35 for non-members. This will include range fees, ammunition, targets, and other logistics. While the NRA range does not provide guns for rent, Log Cabin members will generously provide their own firearms for attendees to sample. Options will include several different pistols - with 9mm and .380 ACP ammo - and some long guns, including the affectionately named Stonewall. (Who or what is Stonewall, you ask? You'll have to come to find out.)
For safety reasons, we cannot stress enough that you must carefully follow any and all instructions given from start to finish. Careless behavior around firearms can result in life-threatening circumstances, so you will be asked to leave without refund if you are unwilling or unable to pay attention and obey the rules.
Remember: Space is limited, so RSVP now if you want to join. Please let us know if you have any questions.
We look forward to seeing you!
