Athens, AL – June 19, 2020 – Shoot Like A Girl successfully resumed their 2020 Coast to Coast Tour on June 6, 2020 with over 300 women showing up to participate in the Shoot Like A Girl events over two weekends. Shoot Like A Girl traveled with their mobile range, seven instructors and one driver to be on site at Cabela’s in Missoula, MT from June 6-7 and Post Falls, ID from June 13-14, 2020.
Shoot Like A Girl abided by the Center for Disease Control and States’ guidelines by implementing protocols including: issuing TrueTimber face masks, provided by Bass Pro Shops; protective eyewear, provided by Birchwood Casey and disposable gloves; they adhered to social distancing limiting participation inside the range and creating waiting zones for compliance with social distancing; and they cleaned the Walker’s hearing protection and commonly handled items.
Even with the implementation of the COVID19 protocols, Shoot Like A Girl was able to provide an exceptional experience to women who learned about firearm safety and shot a pistol, a rifle (aided by Primos shooting sticks), and bows from Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s, Hoyt and Mathews with Gold Tip arrows. Attendees were also able to compare a variety of disabled firearms from their Corporate Partners: Glock, Ruger, Springfield Armory, Beretta, Walther, FN, HK, Smith & Wesson, Colt, Savage and Mossberg; and practice loading magazines with AZoom Snap Caps by Lyman. Participants were also afforded the opportunity to evaluate products from Bushnell, Magpul, Hoppes, CrossBreed Holsters, GTM Original Handbags, SOG, LaCrosse Footwear, and Rogue Ridge; and learn about Federal Premium Ammunition, Black Rifle Coffee and Thermacell.
Natasha who attended the Missoula, MT event stated, “This was a wonderful event! It was great to get first-hand knowledge from women that are trained. I went the first day and loved it so much I brought my friend back the next day. I feel a lot more confident in handling a gun now. I even have a “intruder plan” with my fiancé in the case of something happening. After posting my pics I’ve had a lot of ladies from work asking about it and telling me to invite them next time. Thank you for the experience!”
The impact of Shoot Like A Girl’s events are exponential. A survey with 80% reliability and a 5% margin of error of the 352 clients from Missoula, MT and Post Falls, ID reveals that 62% of them shopped inside Cabela’s while they waited; and 8% of them purchased a gun the day they attended the event.
