Women complete shooting class
Eighteen women participated in the National Rifle Association’s “Women on Target” program and completed the required events at the Hudson Rod, Gun & Archery Club on Saturday Sept. 21. The program introduced women to the sport of shooting and taught the proper safety rules for handling firearms and how to identify, load, unload and shoot handguns and rifles. The club began hosting the program in May of 2004.
