Thanks for checking in!
If you’ve ever attended an OFCC Fun N Gun event you know what to expect. If you’re a first timer or a novice, don’t be shy! We have lots of qualified individuals who will walk you through everything you’ll need to know, however you do need to have a basic understanding of firearms safety protocols.
This event will be a combination of target shooting at steel plates as well as “defensive” style shooting that simulates circumstances of a “defensive encounter”. You may use rimfire (.22 caliber) or centerfire caliber handguns with or without optics.
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 shooters with all levels of experience, it promises to be a day of fun for all.
Below are guidelines (PLEASE take the time to read them) to help facilitate the success of this event.
Registration sign ins take place at 8:00AM sharp on the day of the event. Please plan to arrive by 7:45am at the latest so you are ready to go and we stay on schedule.
After entering the main driveway, park and unload your gear. Before entering the clubhouse, you’ll be directed towards the Safety Check area for the initial mandatory Safety Briefing.
After you’ve been cleared at the initial Safety Checkpoint Briefing, please head directly to the Clubhouse where we’ll conduct our “welcome ceremony” and take care of other important details. You WILL be required to sign a liability waiver to participate in this event.
All carry guns are to be unloaded prior to arrival or may be cleared at the Safety Area. Guns being used for this event 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. We’re told that cash or credit cards will be accepted. Meal combos will likely 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 footwear. Open toe shoes are highly frowned upon unless you really like hot brass between your toes. Hats with brims are 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 pistols. 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. If using a gun with no holster, bring an easily transportable case where the gun will be stored when not on the firing line.
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. Also verify your optic (if using one) is accurate and solid. A fresh battery would be a good idea as well.
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 concern. 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.
After a welcoming presentation, we will break participants up into several shooting groups that will rotate through the stations. Each group will have an OFCC staff member as group leaders. Your group leader will help you with any questions or issues you may have during the event.
IMPORTANT - When registering online, try to list the name(s) of guests you’re registering for. If you list your own name more than once to represent your guests names, please forward their names to us ASAP after you’ve finished registering.
We do our best to place people in groups with their friends. If circumstances dictate you not being in a friend’s group, we’d greatly appreciate your understanding. This will be done on a first come first serve basis, so plan accordingly. To request being in a particular group, please contact Jay Klein (firstname.lastname@example.org) after you’ve registered. This will greatly aid us in keeping things organized.
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!
