SALT LAKE CITY — This Friday and Saturday, June 7 and 8, those who have never shot a .22-caliber rifle before will be properly instructed on how to do so.
Instructors will be available at the Lee Kay Public Shooting Range to show people how to properly handle a rifle.
The range’s archery, rifle and handgun areas will be open for free on both days. There will also be a shotgun range open, but at a fee.
“If you’ve never shot a .22 before, this will be the perfect time to try,” said shooting sports coordinator for Utah Department of Wildlife Resources RaLynne Takeda, in a press release. “It won’t cost you a thing, and trained instructors will be available to teach you how.”
Bows, arrows and free instruction will also be provided on the archery range, and Takeda said the open house isn’t only for beginning shooters.
“Experienced shooters are invited as well,” she said. “Plan on joining us for a fun day at the shooting range.”
The Lee Kay Public shooting range is located at 6000 W. 2100 South in Salt Lake City.
The event will be available from noon until 5 p.m. on June 7, and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 8.
