Area Women Invited to ‘Shoot Like A Girl’ Event

HAMBURG PA – “An interactive event that introduces women and their families to shooting sports in a fun, safe, and comfortable atmosphere,” proponents say, will be held Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 3, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sept. 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.) at the Cabela’s retail sporting goods store, 100 Cabela Dr., Hamburg, according to an events marketing company named “Shoot Like A Girl.”

The company said visitors would be welcomed to “experience (a) state-of-the-art mobile gun range, and join certified female instructors as they share extensive knowledge of firearms, archery, outdoor accessories, and safety” while promoting confidence within shooting sports.

The event is intended to “connect brands, products and the public,” Shoot Like A Girl added. Attendance is free and participants “are given one-one-one attention” from experts in shooting sports, it stated.

Inside the mobile range, guests age 16 years or older can use a military-grade firearm simulator that provides immediate recoil, impact, and sound feedback. They’ll also have access to handguns and long guns in what the company described as an “immersive event.” Also, archery coaches will provide a live archery demonstration, allowing participants to experience archery and learn more about the sport.
