Firearm Courses Booked for Months at Lynchburg Range

Guns.com reports that firearm safety courses are booked months in advance at a range in Lynchburg, VA.
Part of the increased demand stems from the fact that higher numbers of ladies are buying guns now. Mayard Lawthorne, a manager at the Lynchburg Arms and Indoor Shooting Range, reports, "About half the class are usually women, and a lot of women are taking up the shooting sports actually. Some of our clients are buying guns also not only for self defense, but for sports shooting."
Add this to the fact that NRA Women on Target clinics are extremely popular at Virginia gun clubs and you understand why many say there is a new face on the shooting sports, and it's the face of women shooters.
