Public ranges can be overwhelming to the first-time female shooter, as they can often be crowded, loud and intimidating. Throughout this season of “Love At First Shot,” Natalie Foster of Girl’s Guide to Guns helps to answer some of the most common questions that women have when they head to the shooting range for the first time. Natalie answers questions like: What do you wear? Natalie stresses the importance of having everything covered to protect yourself from empty shell casings that can be quite hot.
What to expect? From the counter to the range, LAFS walks the first-timer through all of the necessary protection needed for eyes and ears and safety rules for handling a firearm.
What should you look for when choosing a gun to rent or buy? Natalie breaks down the best choices for handguns for women who are just starting out.
Look out for appearances and interviews with many of Natalie’s friends in the industry, such as Tina Wilson-Cohen of She Can Shoot and Julie Golob, professional markswoman, competition shooter, and world champion.
Many women are nervous to pull the trigger for the first time—but the most important message that “Love At First Shot” wants to share is to keep an open mind and just give it a try!
