WOMEN'S FIREARMS FAMILIARIZATION PROGRAM

      The 2017 Women's Firearms Familiarization Program has been another great success. A big thank you to all the instructors and women participants!!!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This year marks the 10th anniversary for the AVF&G Association's Woman's Firearms Familiarization Program!

We would like to thank Mr. Paul Partenope for the inspiration he provided to get this program started and for being the driving force behind the first ten years of completed training.

Thank you Paul!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      This six hour familiarization program is designed exclusively for women over the age of seventeen who have little or no experience with the handling or use of a firearm. This is not a hunter education course, self defense course, or marksmanship course.

 

     The program consists of a two and a half hour classroom session from 9:00am to 11:30am stressing firearms identification, function and safe handling.  This is followed by a three and a half hour range session from 12:00pm to 3:30pm which includes firing 22 rifles and pistols and 12 gauge shotguns at paper and reactive targets. All firearms will be provided by the Androscoggin Fish and Game Association or its Directors. No exceptions!

    There will be one-on-one instruction during the range session and because of this participation will be limited on a first come, first served basis. Classroom and range sessions will be held outdoors at the Androscoggin Valley Fish & Game Association's range located on East Milan Road in Milan, NH.


     Pre-registration is required. Registration will not be taken the day of the program. The program fills up quickly so it is advisable that you register early.


     The preferred method to pre-register is by email. Please use the following email address to pre-register: [email protected]

Leave your name, home address, email address and phone number.

Participants will receive notification that they are enrolled in the program.   


There is a $5.00 charge for the program to cover the cost of materials.
