Ladies shooting clubs are seeing a massive increase in membership. Which is the right one for you to join?
Women’s shooting clubs are on the increase. The popularity of the sport has long been acknowledged in some Field circles. But finding friendly guidance has turned into a movement. Girls with guns are definitely doing it for themselves. Cooking the shoot lunch is enjoyable (a hungry team are simply the best recipients of kitchen labours as the popularity of our top 10 best pheasant recipes will attest) but why not take your place in the shooting line too?
These women’s shooting clubs cater for game and clay sport, for beginner’s to days in the field. So take your pick from the list below. Oh, and if you are looking for a gun to take with you to your ladies only day check out our gun reviews for the best over and under or side by side.
