NRA & Pyramyd Air: Supporting Shooters With Disabilities

The National Rifle Association and Pyramyd Air are thrilled to announce our new Range in a Box for 2019. The program is designed for approved clubs and organizations that are trying to plan events that include shooters with disabilities or physical challenges. Veterans' groups, rehabilitation facilities and gun clubs can apply to have a complete "range in a box" sent to them absolutely free of charge. The Range in a Box program includes just about everything you need to set up a temporary air gun range...all you need supply is shooters (and, o.k., pellets and paper targets).

Spending time on the range getting "trigger therapy" is, as history has shown, one of the best ways to help shooters who face physical challenges focus on the things they can do...which is, often, much more than anyone (including them) ever guessed. Your NRA and Pyramyd are committed to helping ensure that trend continues with our Range in a Box program.

The key components of the Range in a Box are: seven T-200 Sporter Rifles; three Air Venturi Pistols; one large (8 feet wide by 24 feet long) portable range from Crosman; three Ultimate Tripod rifle rests from McFadden Machine Company; and various reactive target systems from Pyramyd Air. Shipping to and from the event location is also provided at no cost to the user. (Consumable materials such as air and tanks, pellets and paper targets are not included.) 

Sound like a great resource for your club? Here's how to get started. First, a representative of the group must contact the NRA Adaptive Shooting Program at adaptiveshooting@nrahq.org or visit adaptiveshooting.nrahq.org to print the application and user agreement. Each organization may use the Range in a Box two times to establish the viability of such an event, and is then encouraged to apply for grants through The NRA Foundation to purchase its own equipment. 

The NRA Adaptive Shooting Program strives to remove barriers that prevent interested groups from hosting more events for people with disabilities by merging the resources of industry partners such as Pyramyd Air with the commitment of the community to spread firearm safety training to a very deserving segment of the population.
