Ladies Day at the Range - Introduction to Firearms and Firearm Safety !!

  • Jul 20, 2013 · 8:00 AM

THIS EVENT LIMITED TO FIRST TIME SHOOTERS ONLY!!

Learning how to shoot a firearm doesn't have to be intimidating if you have the proper instruction. Whether for personal safety or plinking for fun, this is an opportunity for LADIES ONLY to try out a variety of weapons on a shooting range with qualified instructors that will teach you basics and ensure absolute safety. We ask that you only sign up if you have NEVER shot a firearm before, or you have very limited experience with firearms.Your instructors includes a National Rifle Association Shooting Instructor, an Olympic Shooting Sports Student and Trained Range Safety Officers. Your instructors have many years of experience.

This will be an early day of basic firearm safety and introduction to the shooting sports. This is for LADIES ONLY. Sorry, NO men allowed !!  We want this to be all about a prepared, safe, comfortable, and a low stress environment for the ladies only. This event will provide valuable information to women interested in acquiring basic and beginning firearms safety and gun handling skills. This will be a great opportunity for anyone thinking about buying a handgun for personal protection. You will have a chance to try out many different kinds of handguns.

After instruction, all ladies will be given the opportunity to practice their skills on the range and given individual instruction with a variety of rifles, and pistols. Firearms and limited ammo will be provided, but if you would like to bring your own personal firearms and ammo, that is fine, but please leave them in your car unloaded and we will check them before removing them from your vehicle..

Participants are encouraged to bring sun screen, a hat, bug spray, food and drink/water and any other personal items for this morning event. If you have your own safety glasses or hearing protection, please bring them. We have a few just in case. You will be required to wear eye and ear protection at all times on the range. And dress comfortably, we will be outside in the HOT July morning sun. The fee for this event will be $25.00 to pay for ammunition.

This is an event only for those women who have NOT attended this event in the past. Since this has been so popular we are not allowing guests !

The meeting location will be emailed just before the event. We will meet at 8:00 AM near Narcoosee at Julian's residence in the vicinity south of the Orlando International Airport and then we will all ride in four wheel drive vehicles to the gun range near Holopaw, FL.. You will be taking an outdoor adventure as well as a day of firearm training and shooting!! As a bonus, plan on a late Pot Luck lunch when we return from shooting. Bring your dishes and we can put them inside before we leave . An outdoor grill and kitchen will be provided.

Even though shooting is one of the safest sports out there, injuries can and do occur with any outdoor activity.

Lady's, let's go shooting !

    We will be in an outdoor wooded shooting environment Saturday and with all the rain we have been having the ground could be wet and soggy!! You will want to wear boots or shoes that you are ok with possibly getting muddy. It could be a warm and muggy day, so bring plenty of water !!

    FYI, by the time we finish the morning of shooting, we are usually VERY hungry so we have a pot luck at Julian's house. He has the perfect home for entertaining. We can drop off our dishes before we go shooting and when we return, we will have a full kitchen and outdoor grill available to prepare or heat up whatever you contribute. Bring a dish (or so) to share and your favorite drinks and we will spend an hour or two eating and talking about what we did that morning. Julian lives on a lake so you can also go sit in the gazebo and watch the clouds drift across the sky over the lake. Call me if you have any questions at[masked]

      Angel, we do have a location. We will be first meeting at a members house SE of the Orl Int'l. Airport. Then we will load up into a few four wheel drive vehicles for the ride to Holopaw, FL to the shooting range. Directions and address for the members house will be emailed to all attendees a few days before the event.
