Some 60 women shooters turned out to the Crean Hill Gun Club (https://www.creanhillgunclub.ca/) Oct. 5-6 for a women’s range day event, sponsored by Glock.
Licensed and un-licensed shooters were welcome, as the weekend started with a seminar on safe firearms handling and range safety procedures. Fifteen range safety officers provided one-on-one coaching and supervision throughout the day.
“This event offered the opportunity for some women to fire variety of different firearms from handguns, shot guns, sporting rifles, hunting rifles, long distance rifles, black powder rifles and pistols for the first time, including a cannon. They also received a little history session on black powder firearms from the 1700s to the modern-day firearms.”
The event raised $2,700, which was divided evenly between Voices for Women Sudbury Sexual Assault Centre, and Hemophilia Ontario for women's programming.
The door prize — a Remington 597 semi-automatic .22 rifle with ammunition — was won by Chelsey Paiement.
