Despite the interruptions caused by the COVID pandemic, the Shoot Like a Girl organization was able to complete a full schedule of events in 2020, according to its just-released annual report. 

The report shows that SLAG's mobile range traveled more than 20,000 miles, conducting 22 events as part of its 2020 Coast to Coast Tour, during which more than 2,700 women (and some men) were introduced to the shooting sports. 

“Upon reflection, there is one word that describes the experience of Shoot Like A Girl in 2020: Gratitude,” said Karen Butler, founder and president of Shoot Like A Girl, in a letter to corporate partners. “Alongside and with the support of our partners, the team faced the challenges of COVID, and we were able to successfully complete our 2020 Coast to Coast Tour. When you look at the data in this report, you will find we continued the trends of previous years—we grew the number of women who participate in shooting sports, but moreover, we empowered women and their families with confidence.” 

Shoot Like A Girl provides a unique, safe and welcoming atmosphere for women to shoot a pistol, rifle and bow free of charge. They are assisted by women NRA-certified instructors and given the tools to defend themselves, have fun shooting or take up hunting. Introducing women to firearms and bows in an inclusive environment allows them to relax and enjoy the experience, rather than going to a range on their own or having an unsafe or intimidating coach.

The tour stops are held at Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, conservation events and corporate events across the United States, with the goal to grow the number of women who participate in the shooting sports by empowering them with confidence. The Shoot Like A Girl trailer, which features a state-of-the-art firearm simulator, hosts an interactive experience designed to help more women find their passion or peace of mind in firearms.

Karen Butler, Founder and President of Shoot Like A Girl, said, “When you look at the data in this report, you will find we continued the trends of previous years—we grew the number of women who participate in shooting sports, but moreover, we empowered women and their families with confidence.”

Shoot Like A Girl has recently announced their 2021 Home of the Brave Tour. The first stop is set for early February, so check the Shoot Like A Girl website for an event near you.
