Womens Sport Shooting

Women’s Sport Shooting Overview

Our program provides the opportunity for women to experience proper training to confidently handle a shotgun,  handgun or rifle.  We offer a safe, fun and relaxed environment for the beginner to the experienced.  Take time for yourself to gain necessary training to handle a firearm with confidence.

You do not need to be a club member to participate in the training. Open to members and non-members. Fees are paid the day of the event.

All Handgun and Shotgun events start in the Clubhouse with complimentary coffee and breakfast snacks. The shotgun and handgun events usually last 2-3 hours.

Ear and eye protection are provided.  Bring a hat or visor for head and face protection, especially for handgun training.  A high neck tee shirt is recommended for handgun training.  Please do not wear flip-flops or open toe sandals at any time for safety reasons.  Boots or good hiking shoes are recommended during the colder months.

We shoot in all types of weather, so dress accordingly. The 25 yard handgun range is under over so we still shoot in light rain.

Shooting vests and shoulder protection clothing are recommended for shotgun.  Shooting gloves are suggested but are optional.  Hip ammo pouches are available for use.

The Women’s Sport Shooting program has five women NRA Certified Pistol Instructors that are available for private handgun training.  Please contact Dianne Salata to schedule a private lesson with one of our women instructors.

Dianne Salata is available for personal shotgun or handgun training on the weekends. If you are a new shooter, it is encouraged you schedule a one on one training session with Dianne to become more comfortable with gun handling and shooting prior to the classroom group sessions.

Women’s Handgun Training Overview
