The Gift of Defense | USCCA

I didn’t get a hippopotamus for Christmas. Instead, my wife bought me a pump shotgun.

As a family, we often discuss security and try to use news stories as learning experiences. We have handguns and ammo, knives, and tools in our go-bags. Important papers are easily accessible, and we have two barking dogs.

I’d love to know where you can go to practice shooting this…indoor ranges won’t allow it and there aren’t any outdoor ranges close by that I know of. Ideas?

Our local range allows shotgun with slugs only, it can’t be the only one :thinking:

Check out our Range finder, @Cathy, it might help:

Can you give us a general location (specifics aren’t necessary if you don’t want to share your location)?

Dawn - thanks for the advice. I’ve checked locally but I’m new here so maybe there is some I don’t know about. I’m in Titusville, Fl. and will check out the range finder.
