Hi! I'm a long time "wanna learn to shoot & own a gun" girl, but I've never done it
Now is the time ladies! 2012 was the year of the woman in the firearms industry, but 2013 is the year of the woman doing more with her training and education.
Events like Girl’s Night Out, Breakfast & Bullets, Target Time and Clinics are an economical way to get in some meaningful practice, meet other women with similar interests, and most importantly bond in community! These events are stepping stones to help you figure out what you like and dislike about your gun, how to shop for guns and ammo, and introduce you to quality educators who offer the kind of training classes you need a civilian and a woman.
So what kind of training should you look for? “Ninja squad” classes are fun and all, but there is a practical application we must have for our everyday life. You need to know how to find your front sight, press the trigger and follow through until the threat has stopped…. and keep your cool. Each facilitator with A Girl and A Gun Women’s Shooting League has resources for instructors in your area, if she is not already an instructor herself.
