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-NewPhila Friends of the NRA

        Once again we had beautiful fall weather and a fantastic day on the range. 92 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 75+ instructors & helpers did an amazing job teaching, coaching and keeping everyone safe on the range!

          Here are a few comments from our attendees: "I had a great time! This removed the stigma around some guns for me.” “Thanks for a wonderful day - well organized and well worth the $” “I cannot thank these men enough for volunteering their time & firearms. They were all amazing with my 10 year old!" “The people who worked with the handguns & the sub gun range were so comfortable. They made my experience better.” “Had a lot of fun…want to come next year and bring my daughters – thank you to all that made it possible for us to enjoy.” “The event was very well organized, fun & informative! Every volunteer was helpful & friendly.” “Wonderful event! Well organized and done very professionally.” “Very educational & informative!"
