FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association’s Women’s Wilderness Escape program has partnered with Leupold and Kristy Titus of Pursue the Wild to introduce a new women-only firearms training event for 2019.
From June 3-7, 14 ladies will spend three days in central Oregon’s beautiful town of Redmond learning to handle and shoot a scoped rifle and an optical sighted pistol. All women over the age of 18 are welcome to attend. The $1,200 registration fee includes all firearms, ammunition, targets, classes, activities, ground transportation, lodging and most meals.
Novice shooters, hunters, competitors and experienced shooters will all gain a wealth of knowledge and skills in this course. The curriculum includes two days of scoped rifle instruction and one day of basic optical-sighted defensive pistol instruction. Leupold’s knowledgeable instructors will lead the course and teach each student to be comfortable and accurate with both firearm platforms. Kristy Titus will be in attendance to help mentor the participants with her outdoor, hunting and shooting experience.
NRA’s Women’s Wilderness Escape events are the premier shooting sports and hunting training excursions tailored exclusively for women. The program provides opportunities for women ages 18 and older of all different skills levels to explore and learn about shooting, hunting and the outdoors with some of the most skilled NRA Certified Instructors and outdoor specialists.
