How to Find Your Gun-Training Tribe

If you're just getting started as a shooter, you may feel alone. You aren't!

posted on October 4, 2022

If you're like the millions of American women who went out and bought a gun for the first time in the last two years, then chances are rather good that you didn't grow up shooting. If you're an urban or suburban dweller, you may not know anyone who shoots (or who admits to it). Finally, if you're like many new gun owners, you may find the prospect of training on a range alone just a little intimidating. You may feel alone. Fact is, you aren't! You just need to expand your social circle a bit, and it's easier than you think.

As Team Winchester pro shooters Becky Yackley and Lakeisha Woodard know very well, everyone starts somewhere. When you're just getting started, it's always easier and more fun if you're going to the range with friends. What's more, there are tons of people out there who wish you'd be their shooting buddy just as badly as you wish you had one. Here's how to find your gun-training tribe right now.
