Dear Heritage Community,

We’re pleased to see so many new faces around the Center lately. It’s great to see more and more people coming through our doors who are new to shooting and ready to get serious about personal protection and firearm safety.

Once you’ve shot a few times, you may think you have the hang of it but the fact of the matter is, firearm training is an ongoing commitment.

With that in mind, and in the “new beginnings” spirit of Spring, we wanted to take a moment to highlight some key components for new shooters to keep in mind to help refine their skills.

Pay Attention to Your Surroundings: When you’re at home and in public, always practice situational awareness. You should always be alert and aware of what’s going on around you in order to take the steps necessary to ensure your safety. 

Build Confidence Through Training: Continued education and firearm training are paramount to honing your skills and becoming a competent shooter, whether you’re in one of our Firearm Training Academy courses, the sim lab or working one-on-one with a trainer. 

Practice Makes Perfect: Make sure you’re practicing with a firearm at least three times a month in order to build the muscle memory needed to become comfortable and confident using a firearm.

Whether you’re new to shooting and Heritage Training and Shooting Center or one of our “regulars” with years of experience, we’re here to help you perfect your personal protection techniques.

All the Best,

Jim LaFleur

President of Heritage Training and Shooting Center
