WOMEN ON TARGET 2018
The mission of Women on Target is to create opportunities, encourage, educate and mentor women’s responsible participation in recreational shooting.
We had another fantastic day on the range even while shooting in the rain…74 ladies attended this year's clinic and learned gun safety first then were given a chance to shoot a variety of firearms & archery on 5 different ranges including a Vickers Machine Gun – again this year! The 80+ instructors & helpers did an amazing job teaching, coaching and keeping everyone safe on the range!
Here are a few comments from our attendees: "Wonderfully organized & a TON of fun!", "Absolutely wonderful experience", "Thank you for all your hard work & gracious attitude - this was a wonderful fun-filled experience!", "Rain didn't seem to dampen anyone's fun - would love to do this more often!", "This was phenomenal, excellent atmosphere, friendly staff & extremely informative - I will be back!", "With all that is going on in the country, I want to 'Be Ready' but most of all I love to shoot!", "Fantastic day - all women should attend this!", Every instructor & group leader was knowledgeable, helpful, patient, kind & just awesome!", "My favorite day of the year!", "Everything was very organized, informative & fun!", "I arrived somewhat fearful but never felt a bit of fear when I stepped on the 1st range which was the sub-gun!" "Great introduction to firearms of all types! Greatly appreciate all the time, effort & supplies that went into this event.", "Everything ran so smooth & everyone was so helpful & nonjudgmental - they truly want us here!", Everyone was very approachable & professional!", "Definitely bringing new ladies back next year!", "Thank you for the commitment & involvement to make this happen!"
