Fun & Gun serves as an opportunity for you to come spend a great day on the range with us shooting scenarios that are challenging and FUN! This fundraiser helps us continue our efforts improving firearms laws for law abiding Ohioans.
If you’ve ever attended FnG previously, or shot at an IDPA match you know what to expect. If you’re a first timer or a novice, don’t be shy! We’ll walk you through everything you need to know. There’s always returning participants and we’re welcoming first timers especially. You should at least have a basic understanding of firearms safety protocols. This event will be a combination of basic tactical training and IDPA type scenario stages that will simulate conditions you “may” encounter in real life concealed carry situations.
Participants will safely utilize handguns to navigate the courses of fire. Feedback from the instructors and range safety officers will help you to hone your skills. Geared for both beginning and advanced shooters, it promises to be a day of fun for all.
Below are guidelines (PLEASE take the time to read them) to help facilitate this.
Registration at the facility is at 8:00AM sharp on the day of the event. Please plan to arrive by 7:45am so you are ready to go and we stay on schedule.
After entering the main driveway, park and unload your gear. Head towards the club house. Before entering the club house, you’ll be directed towards the Safety Check area for the initial mandatory safety briefing. Again, PLEASE do this BEFORE entering the club house.
No loaded carry guns will be permitted on your person during this event. All carry guns are to be unloaded prior to arrival or at the Safety Area. Guns used for FnG may ONLY be loaded once you’re on the firing line and directed to load specifically for the course of fire (COF).
REMEMBER, safety protocols are a priority at all times. No one will remove their firearms from a holster unless instructed to do so by a Range Safety Officer during a course of fire or during the Safety Check prior to entering the classroom AND while on the range.
Food will be for sale and provided by the club. The cost is $6.00 and is NOT part of the event registration. Meal combos will consist of hamburgers, cheeseburgers, pulled pork and bratwurst. Two hot sides and a drink. Please feel free to pack your own meal or snacks (protein bars… etc.) for your comfort during the day. You may also want to bring a lightweight folding chair to use when not shooting.
This is a rain or shine outdoor event. Please be sure to dress comfortably for the weather. The stages are relatively close together. Still, wear comfortable, rugged, waterproof footwear. Hats with brims are also recommended to protect you and minimize the chance of ejected brass burning your face / eyes.
All shooters and observers are required to bring your own hearing protection, eye protection and ammunition (200 rounds minimum recommended). We strongly encourage factory ammunition. Please do not bring any hollow point ammunition. Have a minimum of two magazines for semi-automatic pistol. If you’re bringing a revolver, have at least two speed-loaders or two Speed-strips. Consider bringing magazine pouches / ammunition carriers for this equipment. A spare handgun is a good idea…just in case.
Be sure to bring a strong-side hip holster. Only strong-side holsters (Belt, Paddle, or IWB) that securely hold your gun and cover the trigger will be permitted. No cross draw holsters, shoulder holsters, ankle holsters, etc. will be allowed for safety concerns. Serpa brand holsters or any other holster that uses an index finger to release the retention mechanism are strongly discouraged due to documented safety and reliability issues. *If this is your only holster, you may bring it, however, we'd prefer to avoid the issue if possible.
We strongly recommend that you shoot (to verify your ammo works with your gun), clean, and properly lubricate your handgun prior to attending the event. In addition, practice your draw and presentation from your holster while wearing the gear you plan to wear for Fun n Gun (ponchos, rain coats, etc.). Please be aware of and avoid drawstrings on your clothes. They are a safety issue. Be sure to have a good belt to support your gear. A sturdy range bag will be one of your best friends.
Please leave all firearms safely cased or holstered until a Range Safety Officer provides instructions. Anyone legally carrying their firearm in a holster will have an opportunity to swap out their carry ammo prior to the Safety/Skills briefing as directed by a Range Safety Officer. Following the safety check, you will be asked to meet in the main classroom to complete the check-in and receive additional event materials.
After a welcoming presentation, we will break the participants up into several shooting groups that will rotate through the shooting stations. Each group will have OFCC staff member as group leaders. Your group leader will help you with any questions or issues you may have during the event.
IMPORTANT - If during registration you use your own name more than once (presumably because you're bringing one or more guests), please forward those names to us ASAP after registering.
If you are unable to make it to the event after registering, please contact us ASAP. If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us.
Thank you again for your support! We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
