Free firearms training, shooting lesson for women

A gun safety program and free shooting lesson are scheduled for about 300 Detroit-area women who want to learn about firearms and personal protection.
Gun rights advocate and firearms trainer Rick Ector says registration opens Sunday at noon for the May 17th program at Target Sports Gun Range on Ecorse Road in Taylor.
Ector says he started the free shooting lessons three years ago in response to reports about women falling victim to violence. He says about 200 women attended the event last year and 50 took part two years ago.
Prior firearms training or experience is not required to attend the program. 
Ector says women who are experienced with firearms and want to improve their marksmanship also are welcome to attend.
