Lioness Defense is proud to host the Women on Target® Instructional Shooting Clinic, a ladies-only event designed to introduce women to basic firearms safety and operation in a comfortable, supportive, non-intimidating, totally FUN environment. Whether you’re already an experienced shooter, you’re looking for effective ways to discuss gun safety with your kids, you’re hoping to overcome a fear of guns, or you just want a few hours of fun with like-minded ladies, this clinic is for you. We are here to provide a safe and friendly venue to learn these critical skills from—and with—women who have walked in your shoes.

We’ll go over the fundamentals with an emphasis on safety rules, and then we’ll relieve a little stress on the range. Whether you’re picking up a gun for the very first time or just brushing the dust off your skills, you’ll immediately feel at ease in our clinic. No judgment, no pressure, no intimidation, no egos, and no politics. We hope you’ll join us for a morning of empowerment as we strive to keep all Women on Target!

We welcome teenagers, great-grandmothers, and everyone in between… as long as you’re a law-abiding woman who is physically and mentally capable of following easy instructions and handling firearms safely.

No experience or equipment is necessary to participate. Just bring an open mind and a positive attitude!
