Beginners Workshops – Basic training for new handgun owners and those wanting to learn to shoot. These 4-hour dry-fire training events cover all the basics of handgun safety and operation in one class.
Dry-Fire Workshops – These FREE public events are the perfect way to gain an introduction to safe firearms handling. Attend this dry-fire event and find out what ADTA is all about!
Live-Fire Fun Shoots – Give you a good reason to include more live-fire practice in your busy schedule. Membership is not required to attend. This is a great way to find out more about ADTA. Meet and be mentored by ADTA instructors, get signed off on Safe Shooter skills, and try other guns people brought to share.
Live-Fire Tactical Shoots – Live-fire scenarios that train you in basic self-defense skills—getting off the X, hitting your target accurately, and shooting from cover, to name a few. These events take place in open tactical bays at indoor ranges.
Events are typically organized 60 to 90 days in advance. Dry-Fire Workshops and Fun Shoots are open to the public—you're welcome to attend and learn more about ADTA. You must be a current ADTA member to participate in Live-Fire Training in an open bay.
