Default Done, 5-26-13 Women on Target AAR

On Sunday, May 26, 2013 a team of 8 Calgunís volunteerís assembled at Burro Canyon, range 6B to host our first Women on Target event of 2013. A total of 11 out of 12 registered ladies showed up and were eager to learn.




First half of the morning was classroom instruction where the students were taught basic grip, stance and sight picture.

After a quick break for lunch the students were ready to hit the range. As the instructor’s met up with their pair of students they would go over the basics and shoot a string and then examine their target’s and go back and add additional step until finally they would incorporate all of what they learned in the final shooting string. The lessons would include, basic sight alignment/sight picture, hold control, trigger squeeze, breath control, natural point of aim and follow thru.








It was great to see the students shoot at the very beginning and as they slowly added each learning string their groupings would get better and better. In the end 11 new ladies have learned the basic and now have the thirst for more knowledge.

11 new lady shooter’s now part of the 2A movement.







A BIG THANK YOU goes out to our volunteer’s and range instructors who volunteered to give up their Sunday to help make this event a success. They also graciously donated their time, firearms (Ruger MKII, Ruger MKIII, Ruger 22/45), and additional ammo to ensure that we would not run out of ammo.

The ammo that we have left over will be held onto for future Women on Target events.

Speaking for myself I had a great time as an instructor. It is really rewarding to be able to pass on my experience. I think it would be cool if any of the ladies that post here would give their first names so we know who was who.

My wife (Dafne Avalos) had a blast. I was so worried that she wouldn't be into it, but i have never had her speak so enthusiastically about shooting. She couldnt wait to get home and show me her targets and tell me all she learned. Thank you all for all your help.

Dafne and all the ladies did a great job! It was so much fun to see how their skills progressed with each lesson throughout the day.

If anybody has questions for me or the other instructors, feel free to contact us.

I actually do. Id like to know who was her instructor so i can ask him what shes needs to continue working on. Seems like her grouping wasnt bad, but a little high.

I'm honored to have been a part of it and hope I was useful.

Betty didn't really want to go and had to be strong armed into attending. Afterwards though she had such a great time that she's convinced several of her female friends and coworkers who have never shot a gun to try it out as well.

So when is the next one?

This is the kind of response I like to see from this. Someone who was sort of on the fence and is now a vocal proponent!

Title got my wife to chuckel a little. She said she imagined putting a women on the target...hence why I was told to come in and check it out.
