Good morning to all of our FSTVA community!

All of us here at FSTVA wish all of you and yours a very safe and Merry Christmas as we end 2024. We have a few quick requests for all of you to make the season a bit safer and better.

First, be sure to secure all your firearms and ammunition, ESPECIALLY if you have young children in your house! If you are empty nesters, don't forget to do this if the grandkids or any other youngsters might be visiting your home during the holidays.

Second, there seems to be an uptick in people purchasing firearms or gifting firearms for Christmas. This is fine, but please advise anybody that is not fully experienced to take firearm safety course and learn the absolute best and safest way to handle their firearm(s)!

Third, if you plan to carry your firearm for personal safety make plans to attend a concealed carry (CCW) course at your earliest convenience if you have not already done so. In addition to your CCW class, make plans to get some good live fire training before you ever consider caring a concealed firearm. If it has been quite some time (say over five years) since your last concealed carry class, or if you got your concealed carry permit online, we highly suggest you take a refresher class to stay up to date on all the laws being passed now.

On a personal note, if you happen to know of a member of our armed forces serving anywhere in the world to protect our country and keep us safe, please make a special offer to contact them if at all possible, offer them support, and and let them know how proud we are of them and thank them for their service to our country!

Thank you to everybody for your support this past year and we look forward to possibly seeing you again on the range. If you know of anybody . that could benefit from our help or services, please steer them our way.

Again, have a very Merry Christmas and a very happy, healthy and safe New Year!
