Wallum Lake Rod and Gun Club will offer its popular Ladies Learn to Shoot course July 20 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the club’s 200 Brook Road in Harrisville, Rhode Island location. The course, which is affiliated with the National Rifle Association’s Women on Target® program, introduces participants to safe gun handling and shooting in a relaxed, friendly environment.

Participants then move to the club’s indoor range for live-firing under the one-on-one coaching of an experienced instructor. Participants may fire a .22LR, .38 Special, .380 or 9mm Luger handgun of their choosing.
The clinics are open to women only, age 12 and over. Participants under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult. There is a limit of 15 shooters per clinic and online registration deadline closes July 17. Cost is $45 per person and includes eye and ear protection, targets, ammunition, loan of firearms, refreshments and NRA information packets.
