Dear Reader:

What if you learned that coming soon, you could help the NRA grow and get stronger, help good people in your community, and have a chance to win valuable gift cards, while taking part in one of your favorite activities?

We hope every NRA Family InSights reader will join in the soon-to-be-launched NRA Mentor Program, an outreach from NRA Publications in conjunction with SIG Sauer and Magpul Industries. In short, we want to make May 2015 a special time when Americans learn to shoot.

Getting involved is easy. Throughout the month of May, we're encouraging all 4.5 million NRA members to take beginning shooters to the range. During the past five years, about 40 million Americans purchased their first guns. Many are in need of qualified assistance, and quite likely some of them are co-workers, neighbors, or even family members. Along with providing a safe place to shoot, you can help budding shooters understand firearm safety, handling, and range protocol.

You can download the Guide for New Shooters, which supports mentors with basic advice on how to get started, firearm safety, gear, shooting tips and details on gun cleaning and storage. You can download the guide at this link. You can also enter the Mentor Sweepstakes for a chance to win gift cards from Bass Pro Shops and the NRA Store.

NRA leads the nation when it comes to firearms safety and education, and at nrainstructors.org you can learn about the many courses offered by NRA Certified Instructors or even how to become one yourself. When given fair opportunity, nearly everyone enjoys shooting. It's fun, it's gratifying, it's a practical skill well worth developing. By lending a hand, we can show, once again, that NRA members are the good guys.

Please join me and become an NRA Mentor!
