Ladies Only Classes Big Hit at Local Range

Friday night, WTVR CBS 6 had this story on the rise of female gun ownership and the popular "Ladies Only" training classes that are a regular fixture at Colonial Shooting Academy:
“You can relate to girls,” explained Kingery. “There’s none of that macho stuff going on – no one being all big man. It’s just girls wanting to learn and doing it properly.”
The report noted recent Gallup Poll numbers that show 23% of all women own a gun, a 10% jump over a six-year period. Add to this a new National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) report highlighted at the 2015 SHOT Show that over a third of women in the study were new gun owners and had purchased their first firearm within the last three years. None of this is really news to VSSA.  Our affiliated clubs commonly "sell-out" NRA Women on Target clinics run by the clubs.
