Dozens of Women Drawn to Monongahela Firearms Instruction Event
MONONGAHELA – A group of almost 40 local women ranging in age from early 20s to late 80s gathered Saturday at Valley Inn Sportsman Association in Monongahela to learn gun safety and to practice shooting firearms.
This National Rifle Association “Women on Target” event was funded by Valley Inn Sportsman Association and Friends of the NRA at no cost to the participants. This event was designed by the NRA to teach women who never used a firearm proper techniques. Two shooting stations, one for rifles and one for handguns, were set up, where women were offered instruction on .22-caliber rifles and pistols as well as 9mm and .38 caliber-handguns.
Once they became proficient on the other firearms, the women were given instruction on shooting AR-15 rifles. The participants were encouraged to bring their own firearms for instruction on how to operate their personal firearms .
Rusty Polonoli, club president, said they wanted to offer this event to women who never used a firearm and may be intimidated by them.
