Guns & Ladies

Learn to shoot like a girl!

Attend a clinic if you have no experience with firearms, want to review basic safe handling skills, or want to learn techniques that make it easier to improve your shooting skills.

GALs attendees are introduced to the fundamentals of safe gun handling and coached through their "First Shots" with live ammunition. Once "First Shots" training is complete, ladies participate in a variety of shooting events using shotguns, pistols and rifles.

Guns And Ladies (GALs) organizes shooting clinics taught by women, for women. Meet new friends and learn a sport you can enjoy for a lifetime.

We want to encourage, educate, and mentor women and juniors to learn firearm handling skills in an atmosphere that is SAFE, comfortable, non-threatening, and FUN.

The program is offered because of donations from the Friends of the NRA grant program, and other sponsors.
