The Well-Armed Woman – Grays Harbor Opener Set for Saturday

Attention ladies and other human beings:

If the world of firearms isn’t your cup of sunshine, take heart. There’s usually a reason for that – and it can be addressed by joining a local chapter of The Well-Armed Woman. The first meeting of TWAW-Grays Harbor is this Saturday, September 19.

It’s no secret that much of the language, training styles and resources available to a new shooter are directed toward men. The Well-Armed Woman is different. TWAW focuses on training by women, for women on the safe and effective use of firearms.

With over 200 shooting chapters nationwide, TWAW is the largest and most trusted women’s concealed carry resource in the country. TWAW shooting chapters offer a safe, comfortable environment for women to gather, learn, train and discuss issues important to women gun owners. Members meet monthly at their local host site. The annual membership TWAW fee is $50.

A Grays Harbor chapter of The Well-Armed Woman is forming. Monica Cowles of the Northwest School of Safety is in charge. Monica is a Range Safety Officer, an NRA Certified Instructor and USCCA Affiliate Instructor. She teaches a bi-monthly Women’s Firearm Safety Course at her home in Aberdeen. Monica also teaches the award-winning Refuse to Be A Victim course developed by the NRA in 1993. Monica has also started a Ladies Pistol League.

The first meeting of The Well-Armed Woman – Grays Harbor chapter (TWAW-GH) is set for September 19 at the Grays Harbor Rifle and Pistol Club in Hoquiam, 9:00 – 11:00 a.m.
