Guns 101: Online!

May 27, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Are you thinking about buying a gun but still a little nervous, unsure, or scared? Do you have lingering questions or concerns? Do you own a gun but feel less than confident in operating or carrying it? If so, this seminar is for you. It’s is a FREE educational Q&A panel where anyone can ask almost any question about firearms and the armed lifestyle.

The sole purpose of this online seminar is to provide a non-intimidating environment where people can feel comfortable asking about almost any firearms-related topic. The only thing off limits is politics. This is a politics-free zone, so we will not be discussing gun policy or legislation.

We’ll start with a very brief presentation on safety, and then we’ll open the floor for an extended Q&A period. No question is too simple. Please invite the family, invite your friends and co-workers, and bring all the questions you’ve ever had about guns or going armed. We’ll be happy to give you as much information as we can so you can make more informed decisions about the next step in your personal security plans.

Attend from anywhere!

This virtual seminar will take place online using Zoom video conferencing. We’ll meet on Wednesday, May 27, 2020, at 6:30pm Central (7:30pm Eastern, 4:30 Pacific).  The event is free, but pre-registration is required

On the day of the event, we will send all registered attendees a link by email. We’ll send the link to the email provided in your Eventbrite registration. Please do not share the link with others, as we really need to have an accurate count of how many people will be attending. If you know anyone who is interested in joining us, please invite them to register for the event.

New to Zoom? The resources posted below might help. However, you do NOT have to be a “tech whiz” to join the meeting. It’s very simple. Once we send you the link, all you have to do is make sure your webcam is connected, click the link, and enjoy the seminar!

To attend our online version of Guns 101, you’ll need a reliable internet connection, a webcam and microphone, and an open mind. You can join from a mobile device, but it’s often easier to use a laptop or desktop. You will also have the option to join by phone, but we strongly recommend joining by webcam so we can see everyone’s lovely face.

When you get ready to join the meeting, you might be prompted to install the Zoom software. That is totally optional, but using the software usually provides the smoothest experience on a Zoom video-conference call. If you like, you can go ahead and install the software ahead of time. If you’ll be using a regular computer, install the Zoom Client for Meetings. If you’re be using a mobile device, install the Zoom mobile app.

If you attend the seminar, do NOT have any firearms or ammunition anywhere in the room with you. This will not be a show-and-tell session. No attendees will be allowed to handle guns or ammunition during the seminar. If the event organizers see anyone handling guns or ammo, that person will be removed from the video call.

Using Zoom isn’t difficult at all. Want to test it out before the seminar? Just click this link to give Zoom a whirl and see how easy it is to use.

If you’re in the middle-Tennessee area and you’d rather attend Guns 101 in person, we offer the in-person seminar every third Wednesday at CSA Headquarters. Please visit our calendar for dates and more information.

We look forward to seeing you in class! This event is free, but pre-registration is required. If you have any trouble with the embedded registration form below, you can also register directly on our Eventbrite page (click here). Thanks!
