    What will you do when you hear that bump in the night?

    Event Description:

    Whether you’re a new handgun owner or an experienced shooter, one of the best reasons for buying a handgun is to defend your home. Be sure to attend ADTA’s FREE “Home Defense” workshops. Learn how to store your handgun safely and how to use it skillfully, so when you hear that bump in the night, you’ll know what to do!

    Event Highlights:

    This month we'll concentrate on the Exterior of your home:
    • How vulnerable is the exterior of your home?
    • Bushes, fences, gates, lights, cameras, alarms
    • Think like a criminal – what is the easiest way to break into your home?
    After the presentation, then we'll practice holding, aiming, and dry-firing your handgun using SIRT laser training pistols.  These are basic skills necessary for defending your home skillfully and safely.

      Firearm Safety Protocol:

      ADTA Range Safety Officers (RSOs) will be present to check you in at the door.

      • If you are a concealed pistol license holder, you are of course welcome to do so responsibly at our events.
      • At most of our workshops we encourage our attendees to actively participate in exercises or scenarios.
      • For everyone's safety, we require that active workshop participants not be carrying a loaded firearm.
      • For everyone's safety, handling of firearms is not permitted during ADTA workshop events except by the supervised, specific direction of an ADTA official.
      • Our ADTA Range Safety Officers will be present to help all attendees unload and clear any firearms prior to participating.
      • If you are participating in the workshop, you may also secure and lock your own firearm in your vehicle prior to entering the workshop venue.
      This protocol must be followed for everyone's safety.
