Legally Armed In Detroit, a gun rights advocacy group, has announced that it will provide a free firearm shooting lesson at a southeast Michigan target range for 900 women interested in learning more about firearms and personal protection.
There will be no charge for the Firearm Instructor’s safety briefing, the usage of a firearm, ammunition, and range time.
Participation is 100 percent free for all attendees. No prior firearms training or experience is required of the women who desire to take advantage of the lesson. Further, experienced women merely desiring to improve their marksmanship skills are also welcome to attend.
The free shooting lesson offer was the brainchild of Rick Ector, an NRA Approved Firearms Trainer, after seeing a local television newscast of a young woman’s body being discovered on an east-side Detroit street eight years ago.
This year’s event will be the eighth consecutive year it has been conducted. In the first year only 50 women were trained. However, last year the event grew sufficiently to teach over 700 how to safely operate a pistol….
All participants will also receive a free pink baseball cap with the logo of a sponsor – the Gun Owners of America!
