Calling all Ladies that Shoot – or would like to! Devon and Somerset Lady Guns

A new group - Devon and Somerset Lady Guns has been launched to help likeminded women get together, learn to or improve their shooting skills, get some fresh air and generally have great fun!

A new group - Devon and Somerset Lady Guns has been launched to help likeminded women get together, learn to or improve their shooting skills, get some fresh air and generally have great fun!



With the help of the South West BASC team the first meeting took place to form the group. The group then gathered for its first morning of shooting tuition at Ashcombe Countryside Centre, followed by a tasty lunch at the Lay Arms, Kenn in Devon.



This is a great opportunity for ladies interested in shooting who want to meet others that share their enthusiasm. It doesnt matter whether or not you have ever shot a gun before - the groups members have different experiences of shooting, ranging from the experienced clay shooter, regular game shooters and complete beginners. Says Debbie Ironside-Smith, Chairman of the new group.



The group intends to arrange regular coaching tuition days, practise days and social events. Other activities might include team competitions, talks and game cookery evenings, gun dog training demonstrations. As the group grows more activities will be arranged across the two counties and possibly beyond. The possibilities are wide ranging and so it will be up to the group to decide what they are most interested in and would like to do!




Jamie Stewart, South West Regional Director of BASC says This is an exciting opportunity for lady guns or those ladies aspiring to take up shooting in the South West to get involved. BASC are delighted to be associated with this initiative.
