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

  • Jan 25, 2014 · 8:00 AM

THIS EVENT LIMITED TO BEGINNER 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 firearms 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 are a beginning shooter or have limited experience shooting a firearm. 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 preparing a safe, comfortable, and low stress environment for the ladies. 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 and rifles.

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 a warm jacket if needed , a hat, snacks 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 what could be a cold January morning. The fee for this event will be $20.00 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 +1 guests !

The meeting location will be emailed just before the event. We will meet at 8:00 AM near Narcoosee at Julian's residence 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 off road adventure as well as a day of firearm training and shooting!! As a bonus, plan on a late Pot Luck lunch when we return to Julians from a morning of shooting. Bring your favorite tasty dishes and drinks and we can put them inside his house before we leave. A full kitchen will be available.

    Hearing protection will be provided and eye protection will be required at all times while at the range because we will be shooting mostly at metal targets.We have a few extra eye glasses that you can borrow,but if you bring your own,you might be more comfortable .

    Hey girls! If you are new to shooting weapons this event is a very good introduction. I took it last summer had a
    "blast".

      We usually get back to Julians house around 1:00 or so and then have lunch together. So figure around 2:30 or 3:00 at the latest.
