A lot of people I talk to are surprised to learn that they have been missing out on no-cost firearms training from their local NRA. It’s always fun to tell a woman about the shooters at my local members council who demonstrate excellent marksmanship and are pro-2A activists. I get a lot of weird faces from people, my being in California. But we’re here nonetheless, in most communities, and we offer no-cost firearms training which we call “Women On Target” at least a few times annually.
If you’re not yet a member of the National Rifle Association, you should consider it. You really should. Because there are many benefits to joining the NRA, besides 24-7 protection of your 2A rights. But to participate in Women on Target, you need not even be a member of the NRA. It’s only $35 to join the NRA, which is like 10 lattes that you’ll have to sacrifice per year. Even my grandma can make that sacrifice, and she’s at Starbucks twice a week!
You’ll need to make a $25 deposit to reserve your space, but this will be refunded after the course. And you must cancel with at least 72 hours notice, because space is limited and if you can’t attend then guaranteed there is another lady that wants to.
Check out some photos of a recent Women on Target here. This one happens to be from my local chapter, the Antelope Valley Members Council of the NRA.
All of the ladies that completed the 1-day course received a certificate of completion and had a great time.
And it always surprises me to find out that not all of the attendees are wives of members. Many are just acquainted with the group or found our website while looking for firearms training. We bring out the best NRA trainers from around the state every time we run one of these clinics, and the instructors are passionate and well-qualified, with no trace whatsoever of any “drill seargent” demeanor. Just honest-to-goodness liberty-loving 2A activists like yours truly.

2017 is poised to be another breakout year for the National Rifle Association’s surging membership roles. We are currently exceeding four million members (actual numbers are not disclosed), and there has never been a better time to join, as the left coast passes increasingly alarming and repressive laws year after year.
