Elizabeth Hellmann, National Program Coordinator of the NRA Women On Target® Instructional Shooting Clinics, is more than an expert shot and a renowned firearms instructor. She’s also a passionate writer.
Elizabeth has agreed to share a recent piece, “Women and the NRA,” with NRAblog. An excerpt is printed in the current issue of Traditions magazine. NRAblog is pleased to present the complete article as a series of posts:
The NRA Benefits Us All
Each year, thousands of women discover the benefits that the NRA offers them, from firearms safety training to learning outdoors skills to taking responsibility for their personal safety into their own hands – not to mention their family’s safety. And in return, the NRA is thrilled when women try competitive shooting; when women try recreational shooting; and when women learn that marksmanship is a skill like any other.
We hope that each year, more and more women will learn that they have a place in the NRA alongside their grandfathers, their fathers, their uncles, and their brothers. Women belong here, and we want them to bring their mothers, their sisters, their nieces, and their daughters with them.
Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Beth! For those of you just tuning in, today's piece is the conclusion of a series of five posts from Beth. Take a moment and catch up:
