Women on Target
Women on Target clinics (ten ladies per class) are held at the Leo Hadley Range,. The clinics are about 6 hrs in length and include snacks, ammo, firearms and all the safety protection for safe handgun shooting. Classes are co-sponsored by the Bonner County Sportsmen and the NRA.
What starts out as early morning yawns quickly turns into interactive participation in the classroom safety and instruction portion of the class, then to huge smiles, high 5’s, and “did you see that?” during the shooting session.
Women On Target® Instructional Shooting Clinics create more opportunities for women to learn all about firearms, and to gain confidence in newly acquired shooting skills. You'll learn safe firearms handling, how to store your firearms safely, shooting skills, and a sport you'll enjoy for a lifetime.
The highlight of the class is the shooting session that lasts nearly 2 hours. Participants progress from the sitting to standing positions shooting a variety of firearms. They start with 22LR single action revolvers, progress to 22LR semi-automatics and finish with 38 special double action revolvers and 9mm semiautomatics. There are a variety of firearms, giving the students opportunities to experience various trigger pulls and semi auto configurations. Small handguns vs. large handguns are provided to experience how grips vary, and the differences in recoil. Range safety officers watch over only two students during this session to oversee safety and provide individual attention and instruction. Ladies get lots of well coached trigger time!
