National Take Your Daughter To The Range Day





The GunDivas are proud sponsors of NTYDTTRD - we've been following their progress from its inception back in January and fully support the idea.

Recently, it has come to our attention that there are several ranges promoting their own events and misrepresenting themselves as part of NTYDTTRD.

From the NTYDTTRD Facebook page:

Unfortunately, there are a few who are taking advantage and advertising events that are not part of NTYDTTRD. We have not charged participating ranges anything to participate and be listed. We do require a range agreement which spells out a minimum number of certified instructors and RSOs that must be present as this is an opportunity for new shooters to come into the shooting sports and SAFETY is the number one concern. The only OFFICIAL list of participating ranges, and we are up to 30, is listed on this site. Any range advertising an event but not listed, is not an officially participating range, they are infringing on the organization and we have no agreement with them.

Please, if you hear of an organization who claims to be joining in but is not listed, direct them to the official site so that they can become a "real" participating range.  The date - June 9 - is rapidly approaching and new ranges are joining daily.

I have no respect for ranges who claim to be a part of NTYDTTRD, but are, in fact, not at all affiliated with the organization and fully believe that those ranges don't deserve our business in any way, shape or form.

I know one I'll get to say I was part of this, but my kiddo is only 3 and assuming she loves guns like her mom and dad, we'll have many stories and photos from days at the range together.

@The Lowry Place - how can she not become a shooter if both parents are? I treasure the time I spent at the range with my kids. Maybe not your typical bonding time, but still a great time.

Well she is certainly interested, always wants to go to the gun shop. I let her hold my gun the other day and needless to say she needs more work but she is 3. We talk to her all the time about guns so hopefully she'll love it and always want to go with us, it's destiny haha.
