This event is our way to say THANK YOU to the city of Palm Bay.
All proceeds benefit the Palm Bay Police Explorers and Palm Bay SWAT.
We partnered with NSSF and their FIRST SHOTS program and created a fun environment where women and men can attend a seminar and participate in a shooting program that promotes the shooting sports.
First Shots makes getting started in shooting very easy. At our First Shots seminar, you'll receive: An educational introduction to the safe and recreational use of firearms and clear understanding of the local requirements for owning and purchasing a firearm.
We will have female instructors, local law enforcement, and Range Safety Officers overseeing all the shooting activities.

A Walther Arms, Inc. Representative will be on site with a variety of their firearms in larger calibers for you to try out in addition to our line-up.

All adults interested in participating in any shooting activity will be required to attend this class/seminar. All participants will be given FREE hearing and eye protection.
After the seminar you will have the opportunity to shoot a .22 caliber pistol. Experienced Certified Instructors will be with you and guide you through the entire experience. Even if you have shot before, this is a great opportunity to receive a few tips on improving your technique.
Rifles are easy and fun to shoot, they are great for shooting longer distances and have hardly any recoil (push back) when fired. You'll find this a fun and empowering experience.
I know, we've all seen the video's where the woman pulls the trigger and... well you know. Nobody wants to be her. These rifles are quite easy to shoot, even for ladies over 50! Give it a try, take a picture to show your family and friends!
We have a variety of vendors who will have lots of cool things for you to explore and bring home!
