On November 1, 2014, A Girl & Gun Southwest Kentucky Facilitator Suzie Doer offered the Women On Target and F.I.R.S.T. Steps Pistol Course in the historic town of Russellville in Logan County, Kentucky.
“I think getting acquainted with my gun and realizing the importance safety with it was the best part of today,” said one participant after completing the course.
Seven participants arrived on Saturday morning to learn handgun safety and training from NRA Instructors Suzie and Assistant Instructor Debbie Steele, both members of A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League and firearm instructors at Sights On Safety CCDW & Firearms Training. The students were provided with training materials and safety gear during the 3-hour classroom portion of the course held at K&D Camo Connection hunting supplies stores on Farmers Drive that donated the space. Range time was held at the private range of Sights On Safety in Russellville.
“One of our ladies traveled three hours from Louisville, Kentucky, to take this course,” said Suzie Doer, also a licensed Kentucky conceal carry instructor trainer.
The participants completed a course of fire to complete the class and earned their NRA Basic Practical Certification and a Clinic Graduate rocker and Women On Target patch and pin.
