Love at First Shot

NRA Women

The NRA has teamed up with Natalie Foster and created a tv series focused toward females and shooting. This episode discusses and explains aspects that seem to be concerns for first time female shooters. I think it is a great resource. Any helpful information that can help get more women to the range is great. Back in NY, I volunteered to help with Ladies Day at the Range with my shooting club. I enjoyed teaching women to shoot and get over their nervousness and any hesitation with firearms. Share this video with any women in your life who are still gun shy or taking their first steps into the world of shooting.

    big push for NRA Ladies? Good on them

  • They did a commendable job of avoiding the quagmire of politics or other hot-button topics. They touched on the first-time shooter’s interest in learning about guns for protection reasons, but were careful to just skim the surface. Everything else was about safety, communication, and having a good time. Not bad at all. Also, working with a number of women who are involved in the various business worlds of firearms (S&W brand director, professional shooter, etc.) was also smart.

    We NEED more women at the range! The more the better!

      Define “need”…

      For some men, shooting is a quiet retreat from the tedium of domestic life. Bringing more women into that space would not be appreciated by all.

      • In that case they can just get over it as far as I’m concerned. They have just as much right to be there as anyone else.
        We do need more shooters of all kinds including the ladies. Why?— to help with the “fight” and just to see more people enjoy our sport.

        • Cynic

          As long as it doesn’t impact shooting then it’s great. losing days on the range so a particular clique of shooters can have a social club and restrict use to their pet calibre and their pet shooting position. Losing days to an X group of shooters only rule.

          Losing the ability to shoot ‘scary’ weapons that could ‘intimidate other shooters’ (read tactical looking rifles) and losing freedom in style and practice to ever more restrictive rules..

          I enjoy shooting and I go to relax ranges here can be very political with traditional style shooters looking down on those of us who shoot a tactical discipline and causing problems.

          Anything that broadens access without damaging the sport or weakening it is great news. If other people on the range annoy you just put better ear pro in.

          My only bugbear atm is the shoot one round call lane cold arse about with gun and target for 20 min and chat then hot range for one round lather rinse repeat guys.

          Oh and the brass rats

        Need because shooting sports need to appeal to everyone of every gender, race, affiliation.. anything.

        Shooting sports need to be widespread and appear normal, like any other hobby on the planet. That is step #1 towards acceptance and demystification of it.

    Awesome. The one thing i’d suggest is that they don’t just focus on the pretty blonde feminine types, but also the non-traditional ladies out there. a tougher audience, for sure, but they’d be a great pick up for the cause!
