Bob Ward & Sons is proud to present the 3rd Annual Babes N Bullets shooting event, a for women only event to be held May 31st at the Deer Creek Range in Missoula. Proceeds from the shooting event will again benefit Tough Enough to Wear Pink of Montana. Bob Ward’s has teamed up with the Holiday Inn Downtown, Culligan Water, Jakers, and several hunting brands to raise funds supporting breast cancer awareness.


The shoot will be held Saturday, May 31st at the Missoula Deer Creek Shooting Center. The shooting event will run from 9am – 5pm with sign in beginning at 8:15am. There is a $100.00 fee which includes:

 All day shooting clinic

 Snacks water/soda and lunch

 A goody bag with lots of fun items

 After party at Holiday Inn including appetizers, drinks, raffle, and auction (5pm – 8pm)

Babes N Bullets is an opportunity for women of all skill levels to try their hand at shooting handguns, rifles, shotguns and pepper spray. Safety, proper technique, and fun are the main focus of this event. Here is a recap of past events from Tough Enough to Wear Pink of Montana’s website:

“Many of the women had never held a gun, and some were pretty savvy with the hardware! The instructors were terrific – the perfect mix of experience, patience, and humor. The highlight of the day was shooting the .50 cal pistol. Who knows what the good folks at Bob Ward’s might bring this year.”

Registration for the event is open now, and if last year is any indication, it will fill up fast. You can register in the Missoula Bob Ward’s store or online at www.bobwards.com. The $100 registration includes: Babes n’ Bullets shirt, shooting safety equipment, lunch, a full day of shooting, transportation to and from the range, and an after party. The after party is your opportunity to drink, nibble, win raffles, bid on auction items, swap stories, and pick out the gun you want to buy. Bob Ward’s experienced staff, vendors and volunteers will assist everyone both at the shoot and the after party.

New this year: Invite a guest to the after party for only $20 more. The guest can be male or female.

Bob Ward’s is Montana’s oldest and largest sporting goods retailer with stores in Missoula, Butte, Helena, Hamilton and Bozeman, and online at www.bobwards.com. In June, the company will celebrate its 97th anniversary.
