The ADTA started in Federal Way, Washington over six years ago. We held a New Shooters’ Clinic at a church in Everett a few years back and the level of interest in a new chapter of the shooting group was high!
The Armed Defense Training Association’s board of directors is now anticipating a number of new shooting groups in addition to the one in Seattle’s North End.
There is a need for an all volunteer chapter of the ADTA in Spokane and surrounding areas.
A New Shooters’ Clinic is held to prepare new shooters who wish to become participants in a live-fire shoot or just for people thinking about buying a pistol for the first time! I was the founding president of the original Federal way group.
The Live-Fire events are an important part of what the ADTA does on a regular basis. The approach is to remind folks that the most important tool for staying safe is mental preparation. If you think this is something you would like to discuss and learn more about, contact the ADTA or Mark Knapp at http://www.firearmslawyer.net.
Topics discussed at new Shooter Clinics including hands-on segments:
… The Four Basic Rules of Gun Safety
… Semiautomatic Handguns
The West Coast Armory range in Factoria-Bellevue area was the venue for several initial live fire action drill events the ADTA presented for the Federal Way club. The group now regularly presents Live-Fire action drills at an indoor range in Federal Way.
We have discovered that many churches and church members are enthusiastic about what the ADTA has to offer. Many women and new shooters have become very involved in the ADTA. The meetings are open to the public and we present speakers that focus on practical aspects of self defense, not religious or political topics. Church members, including pastors, have gotten involved in our group. We welcome people of every ethnic and political background, provided that you do not advocate unlawful violence.
And we do much more than just basic safety fundamentals. We have hosted seminars on Firearms Law & Use of Force, edged weapons, martial arts and more. Many women are also getting involved in all levels of the ADTA.
