The National Rifle Association joins forces with Pyramyd Air to introduce a new Range in a Box, designed to teach basic firearm safety and create fun events for shooters with disabilities.

The Range in a Box is a temporary air gun range brought to approved clubs and organizations free of charge. The setup includes air rifles, air pistols, portable range, rifle rests and reactive targets. Tools supplied include: seven T-200 Sporter Rifles, three Air Venturi Pistols, one large portable range from Crosman, three Ultimate Tripod rifle rests from McFadden Machine Company and various reactive target systems from Pyramyd Air.

The NRA says the Range in a Box is perfect for event planning including events that want to feel inclusive for persons with disabilities. “This resource is intended for use by any organization planning an event to include people with disabilities—the most common participants being veterans’ groups, rehabilitation facilities and gun clubs,” the NRA said in a news release.

Shipping on the Range in a Box is provided to the end user at no cost. The Range in a Box is headed by the NRA’s Adaptive Shooting Program. The program looks to bring industry partners together to provide fun, safe events that are educational and inclusive to all potential shooters.

“The NRA Adaptive Shooting Program strives to remove barriers that prevent interested groups from hosting more events for people with disabilities by merging the resources of industry partners such as Pyramyd Air with the commitment of the community to spread firearm safety training to a very deserving segment of the population,” the NRA said.

Each organization may use the Range in a Box two times to gather whether the setup will be a success at their events. The NRA said after that, organizations are encouraged to apply for grants through The NRA Foundation in order to purchase their own equipment.

Interested organizations can contact NRA Adaptive Shooting Program via email at adaptiveshooting@nrahq.com or visit their website to print an application.
