    Folks, I'm a member of the Community Association of Firearm Education,(CAFE). It's a grassroots organazation of instructors and non-instructors in the MD-DC area who enjoy the shooting sports,and give seminars,hold basic pistol lessons and educates the public in the proper way of handling and shooting a firearm.
    We've been around since 2003 pretty much working quietly but steadly. Last year we hooked up with the National Shooting Sports foundation,( NSSF), to put on a series of Firstshot seminars. These seminars are a very condensed version of a basic pistol course. A 3 hour seminar covering a introduction to firearms,the gunlaws in your area, transporting,handling and shooting. After the seminar we take the folks out to the range,and they shoot 10 to 15 shots of either a .22 relvolver or a .22 semi.
    We have put on 4 seminars since the middle of last year. We came up with the idea of filming a commercial to advertise our next seminar which is this coming weekend. We raised the money, the production company donated their services,and we shot it in four hours for a 30 second spot which is now airing on TNT,USA,FX,Disc,Soap net,HGTV,and CNN.
    We're trying to reach the folks who have never shot before. A lot of folks who have taken the seminar have signed up and taken a basic pistol course from us.

    Here's the commercial on Youtube.

    I really like it. It shows people have a safe good time together and they look diverse. good job! We need more of these all around the US to desensitize gun ownership in general. People shouldn't be scared of our rights.
