Thanks to Larry Boyle of Alaska’s Firearms Education and Training for the following update and photos, which Elizabeth Hellmann passed along to NRAblog:
“Here are a couple of photos from the Women On Target® Big Game Rifle clinic Alex and I did on Sunday, March 29, 2009. It was a state holiday so the range was closed to the public and we had the place to ourselves.
It was windy enough to blow the targets over eventually. You can see the volcanic ash from the Mount Redoubt eruption on the snow in the photos. The 11 women, including a mother-daughter duo, had the opportunity to shoot .270, 7mm-08, .308, and .30-06.
Everyone did very well in stepping up from the .22 rifles. The temps were in the mid-20’s and the snow kept the volcanic ash from blowing around (final picture in the slideshow above).
NRAblog heard another Alaskan Women On Target® Instructional Shooting Clinic will soon focus extensively on Bear Safety, and the types of guns and ammunition necessary in bear country. It too will directed by Larry Boyle and his wife, Alex Brown.
