Women's Programs - National Rifle Association

There has been some discussion concerning firearms and self defense. 

There are probably questions that haven't been asked or answered.

Do a favor for someone that you know... who may be interested in learning

how to shoot;

safe handling of a firearm;

self defense;

acquiring marksmanship skills;

hunting.

This is a specific program for women.

They do offer "ladyseed's" all lady shooting clinics though most of the time it is co-ed.

It only cost's $10 for a weekend of instruction !

Ladies make better natural shooters than men . ..Appleseed has a saying:

Shoot Like a Girl...if you can

Additional Sources of

Additional Sources of information

State Associations are potential source. Visit https://www.nrahq.org/clubs/state.asp

You may have a local gun club. Many (but not all) offer some training, to the general public.

Your local Parks and Recreation in the county where you live may offer some programs. This is always worth the time to investigate.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF.org) is worthy as they are a potential resource for training. They have a 'First Shots program for New Shooters'. This is good.

Two other organizations deserve mention The 4H clubs and the Izaak Walton League.

4H clubs are youth oriented many of them offer formal firearms training programs for youths. 

The Izaak Walton League is primarily into conservation and was founded back in the 1920's. Who knows, there may be one near you that also happens to have a shooting range. Always worth a look.
