Also there is a womens firearm safety class this weekend. The free shooting course starts at 9 a.m. Saturday and lasts about four hours. Retired law enforcement officers lead the instruction of how to safely handle a loaded firearm.
Students may bring their own firearm or use guns provided by CWSA members. The range will be open after the course ends around 1 p.m., and organizers recommend students bring a lunch or snacks.
All sessions will be held at the CWSA clubhouse and range located 2.5 miles south of Coupeville on Safari Street, which is just south of Highway 20 and Morris Road and north of the Outlying Field. Look for a sign on the highway.
