Are you an area woman who wants to learn about gun safety but uncomfortable thinking
about taking a firearms safety course? Have you ever asked yourself: Would I be the only
woman in class? Will I be the only person who has never handled a gun before? Do I really
want to sit through a class with twelve year olds? Well, if you have, you may be interested
in attending the Fergus Falls area Women’s Only “Firearms Safety” Class.
The Fergus Falls Fish and Game Club and Otter Tail County Chapter of Pheasants Forever
have again teamed up to offer a unique firearms safety training opportunity for area
women. This class will provide basic training for the safe handling of firearms and also
qualifies for firearms safety certification by the Minnesota Department of Natural
The course is being offered for women 18 years of age or older. You will learn about
hunter responsibility; gun parts; rifle, shotgun and handgun operation; safe firearm
handling; fundamentals of shooting; wildlife conservation; and hunting opportunities. You
will get hands‐on experience with firearms prior to any shooting activities.
The class will be held on Saturday, April 23, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m at the Lakes
Area Shooting Center, 19135 250th Street, Fergus Falls MN 56537. Driving directions are
