    • VENUE: Federal Way Indoor Range 



    Event Description:

    Suppose you’re in a quick-stop grocery and someone draws a gun. Or a fight breaks out and a woman with a knife moves quickly toward you. What should you do? You have split seconds to decide. Is that a gun or a cellphone in their hand? And if you must shoot, can you get a shot off quickly enough to survive, without hitting bystanders? Our live-fire shoot-no-shoot scenarios help you prepare for such crucial moments.

    Event Highlights:

    • Safety Briefing
    • Warmup exercises
    • Skill building – for example sight picture, trigger control, getting off the X, clearing malfunctions

      ADTA Planning Retreat - Sept 15 in Federal Way

      Last year our attendees helped define the future directions of ADTA by implementing Event Themes, Certifications & Rank, and Layers of Safety. We’ve had varying degrees of success with these programs, and this year’s Retreat will include discussions about this.

      Although this year’s agenda has not been finalized, it will likely include items like these:

      • How to better recruit new members
      • Converting newbies into shooters
      • Review of ADTA core values and marketing messages
      • Define next year’s Event Themes including details about events

      We hope you will consider attending this important event.  By attending you can help define ADTA’s 2019 activities and goals.
