College Students get Intro to Firearms in Reno

July 20, 2009

This weekend three young men and one young lady were introduced to various guns while staying in Reno/ Lake Tahoe. They hvae never fired a gun before but were interested on the feel and difficulty of firing an actual weapon.

One student was a video game developer and wanted to see how some of the actual firearms that he had written into his games actually performed in real life and was surprised between what he imagined and what was actual.

All students learned the basics of firearm handling and safety. In addition they learned sight picture, loading, clearing a jam, cleaning of the firearms and point shooting. They practiced on metal targets, balloons filled with water, golf balls and paper targets.

A lot of information was covered in just 3 short hours. It is not enough to make them an expert or even a sharpshooter but sparked enough interest in all of them to want to go shooting again and learn more.

One of the students went so far as to call is Father and suggest that he and his younger brother look into this activity and do it as a family outing.

They all left with a greater respect for firearms and a geat sense of accomplishment.

If you want to try this, contact or and schedule your introduction to firearms. We have rental programs for all beginners and all skill levels.

Give us a call at 775 741 0735 any time.

You go to a gun shop and see a gun you want to purchase but are not sure. Will you like it? Will it shoot the way you expect it? Can you return it if it is not to your liking? What can you do to make a better judgment on your investment?


We have a variety of rifles, pistols and machine guns for you to rent and see if that is the type of firearm for you.

Lately, we have been renting to law enforcement officers who are from states that do not allow full automatic weapons. How can they defend themselves against an individual who is firing at them with one?

At Nevada Recreation Inc, they become familiar with the real capabilities of assault weapon malfunctions and machine gun short falls and have a better insight on dealing with someone pointing them in their direction. It is not easy to hit a target in full auto. Also, guns run out of ammo faster than in the movies. This educates the law enforcement officer that during a reload, now is the time to manuver into a better position and place that well aimed shot to eliminate the threat.

Come give us a shot and lean the reality of full auto weapons vs semi auto. Sure you can shoot more rounds faster, but you have to reload and it is difficult for you to hit your target.

You will learn that a good deer rifle is deadlier than a full auto sub machine gun.

Call Nevada Recreation for you next firearm training encounter.

A well place shot is more effective than a spray of many.
