When each of Learn To Shoot North Carolina's NRA-certified instructors held his first gun, he was also embracing an inherent part of who he is. Instructors spent their childhoods shooting sporting clays and hunting before transferring their marksmanship skills to careers in law enforcement or the armed forces. Through Learn To Shoot North Carolina's assemblage of courses, instructors help pupils familiarize themselves with various firearms and earn NRA certification. Their shooting range hones marksmen's skills as they practice with their own handguns or rented pieces. Learn to Shoot also offers recreational activities, such as Zombie Smash, where hunters step into the surrounding forest, firing at cutouts of zombies while trying to forget about the pet zombie they helped raise on their uncle's farm.
