Ladies only shoot declared on target by Williams Sportsman’s Club
WILLIAMS, Ariz. — The Williams Sportsman’s Club (WSC) hosted another successful Lady’s Only Shoot May 14 in Williams.
This reoccurring event is tailored to provide women who have little to no handgun experience to learn about and then practice safe firearms use, according to the club.
A total of nine ladies received a comprehensive day of academics and supervised shooting of their own firearms at the William's Shooting Range.
WSC Range Safety Officers were present with the goal of providing the ladies a safe, no pressure, no embarrassment, comfortable environment to build basic skills and confidence with their pistols.

The day’s event concluded with the ladies ringing steel gongs and knocking down metal silhouettes with AR-15 style .22 rimfire rifles.
