Gun Rights Group Offers Free Shooting Lesson to 500 Women
TAYLOR (AP) — (07/23/16) — A Detroit-area gun rights advocacy group plans to provide a free shooting lesson to 500 women interested in firearms training and personal protection.
The Legally Armed in Detroit event is scheduled July 31 at the Top Gun Sports Range in Taylor.
Firearms trainer Rick Ector says it will include a safety briefing, use of a firearm, ammunition and range time. Ector says no prior firearms training or experience is required.
Online registration begins Sunday afternoon.
The event started several years ago with 50 women receiving training. Ector says about 300 women took part in the training last year.
