Women On Target

The mission of Women on Target is to create opportunities, encourage, educate and mentor women’s responsible participation in recreational shooting.


    This is a hands-on clinic for new and beginning women shooters covering safety and shooting fundamentals with pistol, rifle, shotgun instruction and more.

This event is made possible by Tusco Rifle Club and grants from the

Dover-New Phila Friends of the NRA & and the Holmes County Friends of the NRA

A BIG thank you to Paul Rosenberry for capturing these wonderful pictures!
     We had beautiful weather and a fantastic day on the range. 71 ladies attended this year's clinic and learned gun safety first then were given a chance to shoot a variety of firearms along with archery on 5 different ranges. The 65+ instructors & helpers did an amazing job teaching, coaching and keeping everyone safe on the range! Here are a few comments from our attendees: "Everything was spot on today. This was a very informative and entertaining event. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly all while being understanding of the new-comers. I wouldn't change a thing about this event! "I was scared to death to do this. I've never been around guns. The entire staff was supportive, patient and educated me as I learned. Great experience!!!!" "Today was a start to help me overcome my intense fear of guns. I had so much fun - thank you!" "This was a well organized event - great job!"
