Women’s Shooting Group
1st Meeting overview.
Goal of this group: Work with and teach women to feel comfortable, proficient and confident with their firearms. Empower ladies to own their own physical safety and that of their families. Create a bond with other women in the shooting sports.
We discussed the survey some and did a show of hands on some of the questions. Great to see all the things we have in common!
The Plan: 1st off, we ask that everyone be patient and fluid with us. This is new for us also and we have had an overwhelming response to this group. (We are at 115 ladies.) We were going to cap it at 72 ladies with a waiting list, but we think we can make it happen with out doing that. We will be breaking into groups of 18 based off skill level. We need 3-4 weeks to finalize it in and in around two weeks you should hear what group you are in and time. We are looking at shooting on Tuesday evenings. 1st class to start at 6pm and the 2nd to start around 7:30. This will happen for the instructors weekly but for you monthly.
We will be working with some of you one on one the 1st time if you have high anxiety or fear of the firearm. Help work out initial anxiety before we get in a group setting,.
$5.00 per class per student.
We will be starting with .22 pistols.
Safety #1 priority.
We will teach you the 6 standards of shooting. Stance, grip, breathing, site alignment, trigger pull, follow through,
We will teach you firearm basics- types, calibers, ammo & care.
Might have some special classes and bring in guest speakers. 1st aid, CPR, Awareness and personal safety training.
Items you will need to bring: hearing protection- muffs and/or foam plugs. Prefer you have electronic muff so you can always hear us and commands or instructions. Safety glasses. No low cut or v-neck shirts. No open toes shoes or heels. An athletic shoe would be best.
Will be taking breaks around holidays.
We are here to support each other. Only personal competition.

Thought I would give an update as to what is happening on our end! Johanna and I have been meeting with ladies who indicated on their survey that they have never shot or their anxiety levels are really high. We should be done with this on Tuesday night. We are also meeting this week to break our group into smaller groups. So watch your e-mail this week for further information.
We have right around 115 women and we will be breaking into six groups of 18 (one will be a little larger than 18, this group will be the more experienced ladies). We will be meeting on Tuesday nights. You will be in a 6:00 or 7:30 group and will be shooting once a month. No one will be on a waiting list this way.
We have also been working to secure ammo and firearms and I’m so excited to say the BRC Members have really stepped up and donated what we are going to need for a while. We are sponsored and hosted by an amazing club!
Looking to start our first sessions on Oct. 27, so keep that in mind.
Thank you for being patient with us!
