FAIRFAX, Va. --(Ammoland.com)- The National Rifle Association announces that Smith & Wesson has donated ten MP15-22 rifles and ten SW SD9VE pistols to the Women’s Wilderness Escape, the eight-day getaway that introduces women to the shooting sports at the beautiful NRA Whittington Center outside Raton, New Mexico.

“Smith & Wesson’s donation is a great addition to the Women’s Wilderness Escape” said Managing Director of NRA Recreational Programs & Ranges Elizabeth Bush. “Participants learning on the same rifles and pistols will help our instructors teach marksmanship skills more effectively than ever before.”

The NRA Sports program provides women 18 and older with an opportunity to experience the softer side of firearm education over eight days on the 33,000 acre NRA Whittington Center, an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise near Raton, New Mexico. Women’s Wilderness Escape participants are introduced to a wide variety of shooting sports activities, hunting, and outdoor related activities safely with help from NRA Certified Instructors. The Escape’s goal is to help women become familiar and comfortable with firearms by learning several shooting disciplines with a group of similarly experienced individuals.

“Female shooters are so important to the firearms industry and the Women’s Wilderness Escape is a thrilling way for women to receive an introduction to different shooting disciplines,” said Smith & Wesson Director of Marketing Communications Paul Pluff.

“Our contribution ensures that participants will have access to the industry’s most up-to-date firearms while comfortably learning the joys of competitive shooting and hunting.”
