Industry news NSSF’s First Shots Holds Big City Tour he NSSF and eight shooting facilities in greater Chicago and Madison, Wis., sponsored historic First Shots seminars on Nov. 5, to introduce residents to safe and responsible handgun ownership. The seminars were open to the public and free of charge. With Chicago residents now able to exercise their Second Amendment rights following the Supreme Court’s McDonald decision, and with Wisconsin becoming the 49th state to permit concealed carry, it was only natural for the NSSF to start its Big City Tour of First Shots in both cities. “Each seminar covers laws and regulations, emphasizes the value of proper training and puts participants on the firing line with certified instructors so they can experience the fun of target shooting,” said Tisma Juett, program manager. T The following businesses sponsored the First Shots seminars: Midwest Sporting Goods (Lyons, Ill.); G.A.T. Guns (Dundee, Ill.); Bass Pro Shops (Gurnee, Ill.); Maxon Shooters Supplies Inc. (Des Plaines, Ill.); H.P. Shooting Center Inc. (McHenry, Ill.); McMiller Sports Center (Eagle, Wis.); North Bristol Sportsman’s Club (Sun Prairie, Wis.) and Columbus Sportsman’s Club (Columbus, Wis.).
