The 2021 Women’s Activities Season was filled with great opportunities for women to learn the basics of firearms through two NRA Women on Target classes and Third Thursday Ladies Night. We served over 60 new and seasoned shooters with NRA Certified Instructors who passionately shared their love and experience with firearms. Pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns at the pistol pit, the 25yard range, and the long distance range…what a fun summer!
The 2022 Season looks to be equally full of fun and education. There are two NRA Women on Target classes scheduled for 2022. Saturday, May 7th and Saturday, September 24th, 2022. If you’re curious about firearms, whether for personal defense or to learn a new sport, Women On Target is the perfect place to start. These instructional shooting clinics are designed to teach you firearm safety and the fundamentals of marksmanship, giving you the confidence, you need to safely handle and operate a firearm upon completion.
Women On Target clinics are available only to women — it’s a safe and friendly environment whether you’re picking up a gun for the very first time or are just brushing off some dust and need a little refresher. You’ll immediately feel at ease in the full-day clinics, and will be provided with a hands-on, one-of-a-kind experience. No experience or equipment is necessary to participate. These classes are taught by our NRA Certified Instructors.
