The Annapolis Valley Shooting Sports Club hosted a “Ladies' Night” event April 12, a chance for women and girls to visit the club’s Canaan shooting ranges and try their hand at various firearms, including rifles, hand guns, shot guns and more.

Club president John Robinson said participants got a brief range safety seminar and were also given safety instruction on the particular firearms they were using.

Approximately three-dozen women and girls took part. No licences were required and shooting club members provided the firearms, ammunition, safety instruction and hearing protection.
