2 emily duke checked out a class where women are learning from one another how to safely handle those firearms. 2 (nats of gun) 2 (if there was shotgun shells in there they'd be flying out and hitting emily) 2 jessica minor spent saturday morning surrounded by women...and guns.

2 guns tend to be a male dominated industry.

2 that's why when minor became a certified instructor for the national rifle association...she decided to open women only courses.

2 i know how they feel, i know that they're nervous.

I've been there.

2 living in a state with high gun ownership minor told me women encounter the weapons in their daily lives...and 2 2 this is a really great course to teach women how to unload guns and how to make them safe in their homes.

2 women in the class learned how to safely handle, unload, store and clean 9 types of firearms... they even let me give it a go.

2 very very few women are highly experienced with all different types of actions, so this class is nice.

2 most of the women in the class told me the chance to learn surrounded by their peers put them at ease in an otherwise stressful situation.

2 2 most of the time if there's a bunch of guys i think you're more likely maybe not to ask the question because you don't want them to think that you're ignorant.

2 minor told me she was surprised by the popularity of the course 2 there's a big need here that i was unaware of.

A lot of women want to learn about firearms and a lot of women want to do more to educate themselves.

2 her first three classes have already filled...but she said she will continue to open classes as long as the interest continues.

2 we just want to make sure that these gals feel safe and feel confident handling the guns that they'll most likely encounter in their everyday lives at home.
