Outdoors Insider, with Dale Sunderlin: ‘Try it B4 you buy it’

With the cold days of winter still upon us maybe it time you got out of the house and did something fun. Are you one of the many firearms enthusiasts who are thinking about purchasing a new handgun before they supposedly ban them all?

With the wide array of hand guns out there feeding the frenzy are you unsure of what you want, a .40, a .45, a 9mm, a .380. Maybe a pistol, how about a .357, a .38 or even a new plinker .22. What if you’re a new shooter and really don’t know what you want?

You know the gun shops won’t let you shoot them before you purchase them and what if you get it home and once you’ve put a few rounds through it you don’t like it. The gun shop won’t take it back just because you don’t like it or it kicks too much. So what are you to do, sell it and take a loss, put it in a safe and keep it for posterity?

Naw, check this out, why not “try it B4 you buy it.” Amboy Rifle Club is offering you a unique opportunity for you to “try it B4 you buy it.”

The plan

The purpose of this event is to give prospective gun owners or gun owners who want another caliber or type of firearm a chance to, “try it B4 you buy it.” Each participant will be given the opportunity to shoot 3 separate caliber handguns. This is not a firearm-training course and no personal firearms will be allowed at this event. Women and new shooters are encouraged to attend.

Event agenda

n Eight participants per firing line with a safety instructor supplied for each shooting participant.

n Each participant will be allowed to shoot 5 rounds from 3 separate caliber handguns, 15 rounds total.

n The firing range will be under the supervision of a NRA Certified Range Safety Officer at all times, Dale Sunderlin.

n Snacks and hot food will be available in the kitchen for a nominal fee.

n No personal firearms will be allowed.

n Participants must be 21 years old, no exceptions.
