The staff of experienced law-enforcement officials at Valastro International Academy teaches visitors proper firearm-shooting and safety techniques inside a private facility with a laser-shot range. Throughout the one-hour shooting session, guests aerate targets with bullets from a rifle or shotgun until the ammo runs out. The skilled instructors equip shooters with ear protection to muffle the maniacal hooting of gun chambers, and guests take home safety-certification awards as a keepsake of the day’s firearm festivities.

Valastro International Academy
