Machine Gun America expands personal safety initiative, offers free courses, firearm transfers and gunlocks in June
Expansion is result of community’s enthusiastic response and continued interest in MGA’s firearms and personal safety offerings
KISSIMMEE, Fla. (June 7, 2017) – Machine Gun America, Central Florida’s only world-class Automatic Adrenaline AttractionTM, is expanding its personal safety initiative by offering free firearms safety courses, firearm transfers and gunlocks this month.
The firearm safety courses are available for free to the first 40 people who register. The five-hour courses begin at noon on June 17 and 24. MGA will also facilitate free firearm transfers and provide gunlocks (while supplies last) from noon to 5 p.m. both days. All activities will take place at MGA located at 5825 W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway. For more information and to register, send an email to email@example.com.
“We receive such an enthusiastic response from the community when we offer firearms and safety courses that we know there is an ongoing demand for these types of offerings,” said Marc Adler, president of MGA. “It’s an important part of our philosophy and mission to provide firearms education in an effort to enhance the safety and well-being of our community.”
MGA is a high-caliber attraction where visitors can experience the unique opportunity to shoot fully automatic firearms. A family- and corporate-friendly attraction, MGA offers a wide selection of themed live-fire and exciting simulation experiences, and one of the largest selections of unique and elite firearms available in the country today. Safety courses and lecturers are offered throughout the year.
In an effort to provide support to the community following the Pulse nightclub tragedy, MGA reached out and offered free personal safety and firearms training classes that provided education and guidance on the proper way to handle a firearm. Within a day of posting the courses online, they were filled and additional courses were scheduled. More than 200 people, including many from the LGBT community and some of whom had been directly impacted by the tragedy, completed the free courses.
The upcoming courses offer entry-level instruction and will provide attendees with much more than a fundamental understanding of a firearm. Upon completion, participants will gain the ability to appropriately and safely use a firearm with a skill level well above the typical firearm owner, explained Adler, who is a National Rifle Association-certified instructor in more than 20 firearm disciplines and will lead the training courses.
In addition, Florida residents wanting to transfer firearms or have an online firearm purchase shipped to MGA as a Federal Firearms Licensee can do so for free. FDLE background checks will be conducted for all requested transfers. Attendees should bring IDs along with their unloaded firearm. MGA’s Range Safety Officers will check all firearms as they enter the facility. Restrictions will apply and transfers could be subject to a waiting period. No transfers will be made without a valid ID.
