Shoot Like A Girl travels to cities all across the country, bringing a state-of-the-art mobile range, certified female instructors and some of the finest gear in the industry to help make the shooting sports more accessible to women. With gun sales at an all-time high, resources for new shooters are in even higher demand. Shoot Like A Girl fills the gap by bringing these valuable resources directly to customers.

What to Expect
Both new and experienced shooters are invited to stop by the Shoot Like A Girl trailer in front of Bass Pro Shops to learn about safe and responsible gun ownership and the many benefits of firearms from certified female instructors who are eager to share their passion for the shooting sports. Attendees are also encouraged to bring their families and young children to discuss and hear more about firearm safety. No experience is necessary to participate in this free event, and all equipment is provided to guests upon arrival.
Inside the range, attendees who are 16 years of age or older will be able to handle and shoot handguns and long guns with guidance from instructors, using a military-grade firearm simulator which provides immediate recoil, impact and sound feedback. Archery coaches will also be onsite to assist guests with shooting bows.
Outside the range, at the Shoot Like A Girl gun counter, visitors of all ages are welcome to compare a variety of disabled firearms, including revolvers, semi-automatic pistols, shotguns and rifles. Additional products from corporate partners will be on display, including optics, conceal carry bags, holsters, TrueTimber camouflage, SABRE pepper spray products and much more. A full list of partners is available online.
