Women Special Interest Group
SIG HEAD: JEAN DeSAVAGE   [Scroll down for WOMEN Calendar and Announcements]

The Women's SIG at SMGC is dedicated to offering introductory knowledge and techniques in the safe handling and use of all firearms.  While this special interest group is open to all new shooters, including non-members, we encourage those ladies who have some experience with firearms, but wish to improve their accuracy to also join us. We are dedicated to encouraging women to join and enjoy the shooting sports.

We meet on the fourth Saturday of each month, at 10 am to 2 pm, in either the Pistol Pit (April to October) or the Indoor Range (January to March), and our events are listed in both the SMGC calendar and newsletter.

Registration is made by emailing: smgcwomen@gmail.com  There is a registration fee of $10 for non-members and $5 for members of SMGC.

These range fees help to offset the cost of maintaining the range, target holders and targets.

All events start with a safety meeting and then the ladies are joined by their personal instructors, to learn the proper method of the safe handling and use of firearms.  After the initial introduction to the shooting sports, the ladies are given a choice to try different styles of firearms, to find the type that fits their needs best. The skills learned will enable you to actively participate in all the shooting activities that SMGC offers. We encourage all our ladies to return often, to build their skills. During the season we endeavor to hold diverse events to provide a chance for our ladies to understand all the different types of firearms and events available in the shooting sports.

Firearms are provided by our volunteer Range Safety Officers, and the ammunition is supplied, but you may elect to bring your own firearm and ammunition.   A portion of the ammunition used is provided by the NRA Foundation/Friends of the NRA via a grant to the Women's Division of SMGC.
