Girls With Guns: Tips For Moving From Club to Competition

By    |   Tuesday, 21 Apr 2015 10:04 AM

Shooting clubs for girls with guns have sprung up all over the place in recent years and their regular meetings and shooting sessions have become the new "Girls Night Out."

Most of these nationwide clubs, like The Well Armed Woman and A Girl and a Gun, meet on a bi-weekly or monthly basis and offer educational meetings and classes followed by closely monitored shooting and instructional sessions.

Belonging to a women's gun club offers camaraderie among like minded women, the chance to train together and plenty of encouragement and friendly competition.

Women interested in more of a challenge than what club shooting offers have many options available to them beginning with their local gun ranges. Most ranges hold their own informal competitive events such as Bowling Pin and Low Light Matches, which are appropriate for all skill levels. The best way to learn about them is to jump right in and shoot one.

Another good way to transition from club to competitive shooting is to check with your local range on when they hold more organized matches through International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA), United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) and Lady 3-Gun.

These competitive events are designed to sharpen your skills, speed, and accuracy while at the same time providing a challenge.

Finally, Glock Sport Shooting Foundation (GSSF) has ongoing matches throughout the country on a rotating basis. These matches are both indoor and outdoor, depending upon the host range.

Glock donates prizes to the best shooters, but they also do numerous random drawing prizes that consist of either cash or even Glock pistols, simply for participating in their shooting events. They are known worldwide not just for their handguns, but for the competitive shooting events they enthusiastically host throughout the year.
