TWAW SHOOTING CHAPTERS
A PLACE FOR WOMEN TO LEARN AND PRACTICE
Castle Rock, CO Sept. 12, 2018 Gun ownership and the complex laws surrounding the use of firearms is a significant topic around the nation. The 2017 Pew Research reported forty-two percent of American households currently own a gun and twenty two percent of women personally own a firearm. With women being the largest growing segment of this historically male dominated demographic, the industry scrambles to meet their needs.
This influx of women shooters created a void in the industry: the absence of a safe, warm, and welcoming environment where women can learn and practice with other women. For ladies new to shooting, the very male driven industry can be intimidating and condescending. To meet this need, TWAW Shooting Chapters, Inc., (501(c)3) began launching Shooting Chapters across the country to create woman friendly opportunities to practice and learn, with a new chapter here in (CITY NAME) starting soon.
TWAW Castle Rock Shooting Chapter will give women of all experience levels the opportunity to be introduced to issues important to women shooters, learn safe gun handling skills, and train together.
TWAW Castle Rock Chapter is being spearheaded by Randi Garske and Lonia Maxwell, local female gun enthusiasts. Events are held monthly and are open to all women, 18 years or older, that may legally possess firearms. TWAW Shooting Chapters has partnered with DCF Guns to be the host range for these monthly events. Time will be devoted to discussion and classroom education as well as time on the range learning and practicing safe gun handling skills at each monthly event.
Participants will be required to pay any fees and costs of ammunition or firearm rentals. Wednesday is also DCF Guns Ladies Day where ladies can shoot for free all day long. TWAW yearly chapter membership dues of $50 offers members local and national discounts, chapter hat and member kit, and is used to cover chapter expenses, insurance and events. First time attendees are not required to join.
We meet the 1st Wednesday of every month from 5pm to 7pm at DCF Guns 1155 Park Street Castle Rock, CO 80109. Join us Oct. 3rd, 2018.
