LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Novice female shooters take aim

To the editor:

It must be a sign of the times.

Your public service advertising has helped set a new standard for participation in the Central Whidbey Sportsmen’s Association Safety Training Programs, this time the Women’s Firearm Safety Class.

With your assistance, on April 6 we were able to provide valuable training to 58 novice female gun owners so they can safely handle a loaded firearm. A lot of the participants took the opportunity to fire a gun for the first time, too.

Many brought their own weapons from home, some of which have almost never been touched because of the “fear factor.” We helped with those, too.

Safety sells, and you helped.

Scott Smith
