MANSFIELD—The eight-hour National Rifle Association Basic Pistol Class is being offered on Saturday, May 25 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the pistol range at the Lambs Creek Sportsman's Club, near Mansfield. This handgun training class is open to women only whether they are novice or experienced pistol shooters and owners.

A shooter can borrow a .22 pistol for the day or bring her own pistol or revolver to learn how to use it and become comfortable shooting it. Participants should also bring eye and ear protection.

Those taking the class are asked to bring 100 rounds of ammunition for the gun they bring or .22 long rifle ammunition for a borrowed gun.

Participants are asked to arrive at 7:45 a.m., leave all of their ammunition in their vehicles and give their unloaded pistols or revolvers to the instructor at check-in for a safety check and clearing.

Women who register for the May 25 class will receive a handbook and information handouts when they arrive that day. Topics to be covered will include the rules of gun safety, information about the parts of both the gun and ammunition, the fundamentals of proper and safe pistol shooting and how to clean and store a pistol. Upon successfully completing the written test and shooting exercises, participants will be awarded a certificate of completion and a Basic Pistol Class rocker patch.

A cadre of women will teach this course. Lunch, soda and water will be provided. Participants are welcome to bring snacks.

Shooters need to dress for the weather and for shooting. To avoid being burned by spent cartridges, it is recommended that women wear a long-sleeved, cotton shirt over a T-shirt and closed-toe shoes. Not recommended are shorts, tank tops, halters and open-toe footwear.

Those interested in registering are asked to contact Lead Instructor Marilyn Jones whether they borrow a .22 pistol or bring their own gun and whether they do or don't have eye and ear protection.

The fee is $50. To register, send a check for $50 made out to Marilyn Jones to her at 1155 Old State Road, Covington, PA 16917. To register, each woman is asked to provide her name, address, phone number, email address and date of birth to Jones. To borrow a .22 caliber pistol or eye and ear protection and for more details about this class, call 570-549-2794 or email
