Detroit Firearm Instructor Plans FREE Gun Lessons For 900 Women in One Day

AmmoLand Editors Note: This is a great event put on by Legally Armed In Detroit at their own expense. This would be an excellent opportunity for an ammunition manufacturer to get on board as a sponsor and help out a great cause.

Detroit, MI – -( Legally Armed In Detroit, a gun rights advocacy group, has announced that it will provide a free firearm shooting lesson at a southeast Michigan target range for 900 women interested in learning more about firearms and personal protection.

There will be no charge for the Firearm Instructor’s safety briefing, the usage of a firearm, ammunition, and range time.

Participation is 100 percent free for all attendees. No prior firearms training or experience is required of the women who desire to take advantage of the lesson. Further, experienced women merely desiring to improve their marksmanship skills are also welcome to attend.

The free shooting lesson offer was the brainchild of Rick Ector, an NRA Approved Firearms Trainer, after seeing a local television newscast of a young woman’s body being discovered on an east-side Detroit street eight years ago.

This year’s event will be the eighth consecutive year it has been conducted. In the first year only 50 women were trained. However, last year the event grew sufficiently to teach over 700 how to safely operate a pistol.

This year’s goal is 900 trained women over the day-long event. It is only with the cooperation of Ector’s fellow Firearm Instructor colleagues and supporters across social media that this event could even be attempted and safely conducted.

Ector believes that there are many women in the state of Michigan who are curious about firearms and their role in self-defense but are reluctant to investigate due to fears.

He said, “If giving women a free lesson by a credentialed professional translates into women just trying it, it’ll be a productive use of my time.”

The ladies FREE shooting event will be held on Sunday, May 19, 2019, at the Top Gun Shooting Sports Gun Range at 22050 Pennsylvania in Taylor, Michigan. FREE Advance Pre-registration is required for participation.

Interested ladies should visit the following event page on Facebook for more info:

Registration opens on this Sunday, May 12th, 2019 at 8 am EST!

All participants will also receive a free pink baseball cap with the logo of a sponsor – the Gun Owners of America!

This is great news spread the word. Trained and knowledgeable gun owners are responsible gun owners. Add to the number!!!!!


This is a perfect example of the care and concern for women in this community that every state needs. Instead of being concerned about making a buck he cares about womens safety. His community should be presenting this person an appreciation award.

Good for this Detroit Firearms Instructor. Our nation today needs many more like him. Now I realize I may be
repetitive here. But again bear in mind Paxton Quigley’s 2010 revised book: “Armed And Female: Taking Control.”
Also, “Dial 911 and Die: The Shocking Truth About The Police Protection Myth” by Richard Stevens (1999). Dial
911 and Die remains available from JPFO, Inc. at JPFO, Inc. is “America’s Aggressive Civil Rights
Organization.” Dial 911 and Die can likewise be viewed online at You Tube.

I’ve done the WOT and other groups where we ran 100+ thru in a day not just for handguns but rifles, airguns and shotguns as well as classes and that is a long day of work. That must be a well oiled machine to accomplish 900!


I think this is outstanding. Well done.

Is there a PayPal address or Patreon account where we can send a few nickels in support?

This is exactly what is needed to counter the endless tide of left leaning media propaganda.
