You Got Your First Gun For Christmas… Now What?

by Bob Owens |  |  Published on December 28, 2016

If gun sales from the latter half of 2016 are any indication, tens of thousands of Americans probably gun their very first gun for Christmas.

To you we say, “congratulations!”

Whether it was a rifle or a pistol or a shotgun really doesn’t matter. What matters is that whatever firearm you receive, you learn to use it responsibly. If the person who gifted you a firearm (yes, gentle readers, that is entirely legal under federal law) is an experienced shooting enthusiast themselves then you may have someone who can already show you the ropes.

But what if you’ve got a new gun, and don’t really know anyone to train you on how to use it safely?

Never fear: help is at hand.

It may surprise some to discover that the National Rifle Association is first and foremost a firearms training organization. It’s the efforts of the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) and Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) that you see most often in the news.
