New Organization Gives Women Hands-On Shooting Experience


Throwing like a girl has long been a line of teasing, mostly from muscular men who have been throwing things since they could walk. However, woe be the man who thinks that women can’t handle a firearm; in fact, you’ll quickly learn that most ladies’ hand-eye coordination is well-suited for any type of shooting. Karen Butler and Christy Crawford spearhead Shoot Like a Girl and recently gave nearly 1,000 women their first shooting experience:

slg1[1]Shoot Like A Girl’s debut of their innovative Firearms Test Shots program at the 2013 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Cowboy FanFest in Las Vegas, Nevada, was a huge success! In the ten days of Cowboy FanFest, Shoot Like A Girl had just under 900 shooters through their trailer, where women shot a 9mm Pistol, a .223 Rifle and bows. Of the nearly 900 women through the trailer, 48% of the firearms shooters and 72% of the archery shooters were new or inexperienced shooters who had never shot a gun or bow before, or it had been years since they fired their last shot.
