New chapter of The Well Armed Woman teaching women how to shoot firearms

<span class=”s1″>The Well Armed Woman, a national organization designed to educate female shooters, is introducing chapters all over the country including a new one in Logan.</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>Beverly Powell, Logan Chapter leader, is a local female gun enthusiast.  </span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>“Right now the largest growing segment of firearms sales in this country involves women. So women need a safe place where they can learn how to shoot and get proficient in their shooting skills.”</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>Powell said she started shooting about five years ago and she loved it from the beginning.</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>“Like most others, I had to learn a lot on my own. I took a lot of training classes and became a firearms instructor myself. About a year ago I heard about this organization and I decided this is what we need here in Cache Valley.”</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>The local group meets every second Wednesday, 7-9 p.m., at the Cache Valley Public Shooting Range.</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>“The first hour is usually a discussion group on a topic of interest. The second hour we go out on to the range and have fun shooting. It is a safe, non-threatening environment for us to meet with other women.”</span>

<p class=”p2″><span class=”s1″>Powell encourages <a href=”” target=”_blank”>women interested in learning to shoot</a> to call her at 435-760-3001.</span>
