RANDOLPH COUNTY - A new program from Northern Missouri Firearms called "Shoot Like A Girl" launched Sunday. This basic pistol class will be once a month for women only wanting to learn the prinicples of shooting a gun. Annie Miles, co-owner of Northern Missouri Firearms said "on average, women shoot better than men."

Miles said "Shoot Like a Girl" is a great way to get women to learn about guns.  

"A lot of women are intimated to take classes that are predominately filled with men, because they feel they might ask a stupid question, but what they don't realize there is no stupid question," Miles said.

The "Shoot Like A Girl" program consists of two classes: first steps basic pistol class and conceal and carry class.

Miles said the class filled up in less than a day.

"We felt there was a real need in the market for women to create a comfortable environment for them to learn about firearms," Miles said.  

Ten women with ages ranging from 20 to 55 years old participated in "Shoot Like a Girl's" first class. There is no age limit for the classes, but according to Missouri law you must be 18 years or older to obtain a gun license.
