GILBERT'S INDOOR SHOOTING RANGE

Tired of the usual end-of-summer activitites? On the lookout for an event that doesn't require sunscreen or bug spray? Then join the Chesapeake Chapter of Sisters in Crime on Sunday, July 19th, for an indoor, air conditioned, really really fun (and safe) shooting range experience.

** SPACE IS LIMITED TO 30 PEOPLE  **

The first 30 people who reserve a space will receive the following:
    *  Gun rental
    *  Eye & ear protection
    *  25 rounds of .9 cal. bullets
        *  One small target 

    *  A 30 minute safety orientation video & quiz

Once again we present an opportunity to hone your shooting skills and learn the ins and outs of safe handling, loading and firing a handgun. At Gilbert's Indoor Shooting Range in Gaithersburg, MD on July 19, we'll find out how it feels to fire a 9 mm handgun.

For those who joined us last time, we used a 22 mm. This will be a very different experience. The 9 mm is louder and has a stronger recoil than the 22 mm. 

Ear protection, eye protection and a gun are provided. Also included in the cost are 25 rounds of 9 mm ammunition. Additional rounds will be available for purchase at $29.95 per box of 50, which can be split between students.

PRECAUTIONS 

** It is suggested you wear a shirt that can be closed to your neck and/or bring a baseball cap or any hat with a visor to prevent shells from falling on your face or in your clothing. Last time a shell flipped back onto a member, burning her chest as it fell inside her shirt.

** Although you'll be wearing ear protection, a firing 9 mm handgun produces a very loud noise and harsh recoil. If you are sensitive to noise or have physical difficulties, please carefully consider if you want to join this field trip.


(THANKS to Diana Belchase, our intrepid field trip chairman, for arranging this outing.)

AGENDA

Check-in:                   9:00 -  9:10 am
