Weak/Single Hand Shooting Night
Hello ladies, This is one of my favorite events. It's fun, challenging and practical. Tonight we are going to practice shooting with our weak hand. Why, you ask? Because proficiency with your strong hand is key, of course, but if your strong hand is out of commission for whatever reason, knowing how to comfortably and confidently handle and fire your pistol with your weak hand will offer a new kind of confidence. You'll start shooting with a strong two-hand hold, then a strong single-hand hold, then you will transfer the gun safely to your weak hand then continue to shoot with your weak two-hand hold and your weak single-hand hold. This can be challenging, but it's a good experience and you'll learn how good you can shoot with a single and/or strong hand. As always, we encourage you to try the shooting events that are new to you, but please do not feel that you have shoot as described. All shooters are welcome to attend and shoot as you normally would. See you soon! Teresa - Host /Organizer www.pistolpackingladies.com

What we're about

Hello and welcome to the Pistol Packing Ladies Shooting Club.

Pistol Packing Ladies is a ladies-only shooting club established by women for women to encourage and empower one another through safe pistol handling and firing. We encourage all women who want to learn to shoot, and those who want to hone their developed pistol skills, to join us for both on- and off-range events. We love what we do. We know you will too.

Learning to handle a pistol safely is paramount. Learning to shoot a pistol safely and with confidence is equally important. Pistol Packing Ladies offers lady pistol shooters a safe and fun environment to achieve their pistol shooting goals. PPL offers firearm handling and shooting classes (http://www.pistolpackingladies.com/for-the-ladies), as well as weekly events at The Range (http://indoorrange.com/) to challenge all levels of pistol shooters.

Pistol Packing Ladies meet every Thursday evening at The Range (http://indoorrange.com/), from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Each week is an opportunity for PPL shooters to hone their skills and learn to harness the power from within. It is also an opportunity to share time with other like-minded women.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of joining PPL is knowing that each shooter has the opportunity to meet other like-minded women who believe in the right to bear arms, to defend herself and her family, and to hone her pistol skills in a safe and fun environment. Relationships begin on the range as lady shooters share lanes, get to know each other, and share their skills with one another. Relationships continue both on and off The Range (http://www.indoorrange.com) and often blossom into great friendships.

For those new to shooting, or new to shooting at The Range, the PPL Getting Started (http://www.pistolpackingladies.com/getting-started) page is a great place to learn more about range pricing and options for what you may need at The Range.

PPL is open to ladies 17 years old and older. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.

Below are links to two introductory videos that new shooters may find helpful and an article regarding general rules for The Range:
