NTYDTTRD is coming up!!

Time to start registering before all the good time slots are gone!
If you are in the Northern Va area, please plan to attend the founders event at the HQ NRA Range. We will have volunteer NRA Certified instructors, loaner firearms that can be handled by ages 6 and up. Prizes, give aways, a raffle and lots of fun!
The program starts at 7:00 a.m., we are the only ones on the range from 7-8:00. There will be a shooting demonstration approximately 8:10, some trick shots, some great shooting, and MAYBE a special guest… We will start again at 8:30 with dedicated lanes for our use during public hours. 
We will be asking for a $10 donation per family to cover range fees.
Experience is not required!  Come Join US for some family fun!  Please pre-register with me, Lynne@InnovativeDefensiveSolutions.com , I need to know the number and ages of children (adult daughters are welcome as are the sons) and your preferred time.  I will confirm a time with you by return email.
If you are not in our area, please look on the Find a Range tab at www.NationalTakeYourDaughtertotheRangeDay.com to find a range close to you.  Check the info box to see if pre-registration has been requested and let them know if you have any questions.

Let’s Make June 9 an AWESOME day of Safe Shooting and Family Fun!


  1. Really looking forward to it Lynne!!

  2. Lynne, I'm considering bringing my daughter to the NRA range for NTYDTTRD but I'm a little concerned about the noise. She's only six, and this would be her first time being anywhere near gunfire. I don't want her first experience to be a bad one because the noise of an indoor range can be a little much when some of the big guns come out. Is most of this gonna be .22s? Should I bring my own .22s?

    1. We;d love to have you! 6 is the minimum age. I have ordered some youth sized ears, plus remind me and I can bring some foam ear plugs to use under them if you are coming. The best time slot would be 7-8am, since we will be the only ones on the range, it is less likely there will be a lot of people with big guns. We will have my Henry .22 lever action, my Browning Buckmark .22 pistol and others of that caliber, so it is up to you. If you can't make it that early...and I really hope you can, then it is likely to get noisy.
