Having a Blast: Women Learn to Shoot

Cleland's Outdoor World has been hosting Ladies Night classes for more than a decade, combining instruction and target practice. The 30 minutes of instruction focuses on gun safety, what it takes to shoot a gun, and trigger control. On the range, women practice with everything from a .22-caliber revolver, the simplest to use, to more complex guns such as semi-automatic pistols.
