Ladies take aim at Nelson Rod and Gun Club

The Nelson Rod and Gun Club night was spearheaded by Julie Stickley in spring, 2011.

Ladies Shoot Night at the Nelson Rod and Gun Club has started again.

The Nelson Rod and Gun Club night was spearheaded by Julie Stickley in spring, 2011. Stickley has since become a new mom so Angela Adams Helgren has taken over as lead range officer. She is being assisted by Tea Preville, and resident experts Lorne Trickett and Richard Green.

This is a challenging, self-empowering, skill-building activity that fosters focused concentrated attention and camaraderie with fellow shooters.

Beginners are given one-on-one attention until their comfort level is reached. They work with range officers to learn the ins and outs of a long gun and when available, handguns.  In the plans are informative session on gun cleaning, sight instruction, and outdoor shoots when the weather permits. Only age 19 and beyond are permitted to the ladies shoot.

The first shoot is free and becoming a Nelson Rod and Gun Member is easy — go to http://nrgcbc.ca. No firearms license is needed as the range officers are fully qualified.  Once a rod and gun member, access to the range is free.
