The three-hour class will take place at the Detroit Sportsmen’s Congress in Utica on Monday, Jan. 31 from 7 to 10 p.m.

The class is designed especially for women ages 18 and over to learn basic handgun shooting skills from certified instructors in a safe and comfortable environment.

Participants will learn firearm safety, fundamentals of pistol shooting, ammunition basics and tips on purchasing a handgun. Several different firearms will be set up for handling under certified instructor supervision. This is a basic introductory to handgun shooting class and beginners are welcome.

Participants will visit the on-site shooting range to practice shooting .22 caliber handguns. Eye and ear protection will also be provided.

The registration deadline is Jan. 24. Register early; class size is limited to 24 participants. A $30 fee is due at the time of registration. For registration forms and information on this and other BOW events, visit www.michigan.gov/bow, email [email protected] or call 517-241-2225.
