A Philadelphian’s Guide to Learning … Anything
In an Hour or Less
Shoot a gun
Because it’s empowering. Because it’s fun. Because you read Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Whatever your reason, Philadelphia Archery and Gun Club’s NRA-certified instructors will walk you through safety rules; help you with your stance, grip and trigger pull; and finish up with a round or two at the club’s indoor shooting range.
THE TIME: Most beginner lessons take about an hour, but your teacher will stick with it until you can shoot.
THE TAB: $65 for one private lesson.
