BARBOUR COUNTY -

Women were able to get out to the firing range Saturday and learn how to safely handle a firearm at the Women on Target class.

The National Rifle Association sponsors Women on Target. This program is for new and beginning women shooters to learn the fundamentals of fire-arms and gun safety.

Instructor Kimberly Hoburt said its very important for these women to learn how to safely handle a firearm.

"This is a wonderful program that empowers women. It shatters myths in the fears and stereotypes that are out there. It makes them understand a firearm can be a tool just like anything else. They can have a great time with it," Hobart said.

The ladies were able to learn things like: how to safely store a firearm in their home or automobile. What makes up a firearm, and how to go out to a range and safely shoot a gun.
