 WHAT IS BABES N BULLETS? 

A day-long women’s only shooting event brought to you by Bob Ward’s and a benefit for Tough Enough To Wear Pink of Montana (TETWP)**. All proceeds will be donated to TETWP by Bob Ward’s.

**Tough Enough to Wear Pink of Montana is dedicated to providing funding for breast cancer awareness, education, screening, support and further diagnosis for Montana women and men. For more information, visit their website at:http://www.toughpinkmontana.org

Bob Ward’s will provide all firearms. No personal firearms will be permitted.

There will be experts from firearm manufacturers, personal protection and home security (gun safes) vendors to teach and inform you about all things shooting. You’ll have the opportunity to shoot a wide variety of firearms during the day – handguns, rifles and shotguns. This event is structured to appeal to first-time shooters AND women with firearm experience.

The clinic is about having fun, learning about firearm safety, shooting and securing firearms in your home. We hope you’ll invite your friends and spend the day with your girlfriends raising awareness and money in the fight against breast cancer.

WHAT DO I GET FOR PARTICIPATING? 

An entire day of fun with your friends at Deer Creek Shooting Center (East of Missoula) and an after-party at Canyon River Golf Course! IT’S GOING TO BE A BLAST!!

We’ll start the day as a group with introductions and a short session on firearm safety. After that, we’ll break into smaller groups and go through a number of stations.

You’ll pass through 7 stations.

There will be water, soda and snacks available throughout the day. A catered lunch will also be served. Please let us know in advance if you have dietary restrictions and we will make every attempt to accommodate them. You’ll get a bag full of goodies including hearing and eyewear protection, a t-shirt and the knowledge that your money is helping someone in Montana who has breast cancer. This event is for women only age 18+ and space is limited to 100 women.
