Promote firearms safety and education. Open the door to a wide variety of experiences allowing women to progress into other shooting disciplines for personal satisfaction and/or competition. Address concerns facing new shooters such as; self-defense, firearms purchases, care and cleaning of your firearm and other questions, in an open environment. Facilitate a place where women can mentor each other, have fun and compare experiences with others who share a common interest in the shooting sports. Offer a recreational activity in which the whole family can enjoy.The Annie Oakley Motto:”Aim at a high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, not the second, and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting, for only practice will make you perfect. Finally, you’ll hit the bull’s-eye of Success.”

BEST WOMEN’S GUN CLUBAnnie Oakley Sure Shots
Address: Ben Avery Shooting Facility4044 West Black Canyon Boulevard, Phoenix
There are not many things more annoying than being hit on at a shooting range, or being offered help shooting “that cute little gun.” This is why we love the Ben Avery Shooting Facility’s Annie Oakley Sure Shots program, and the Thursday “ladies’ night.” Created to provide a safe atmosphere for women to learn about and practice shooting firearms, the group was founded to provide instruction and mentoring for women, by women. Thursday night is always free for women. The facility, run by the Arizona Game and Fish Department, has a highly trained staff, safety officers, ear and eye protection, free ammunition, and a variety of firearms in a range of calibers. It even has complimentary gun locks. Membership in the club is also free. No knowledge or possession of firearms is necessary, and you can progress at whatever pace is most comfortable for you. Whether you’re an experienced shooter or have never held a gun in your life, this is the place to go if you want to learn more, or just practice in a testosterone-light zone.
