Scott Bach and the rest of the crew at ANJRPC appear to have put on quite an event this weekend. They taught about 300 women how to shoot everything from handguns to ARs.
Women’s Day at the Range has been a tradition at the Cherry Ridge Range off Canistear Road in Vernon for about 10 years, said Scott Bach, president of the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs.
The event is one of several outreach programs the association hosts to promote shooting sports and the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
Organizers said they initiated the free program to give women a fun day without male interference, especially since women are taking up shooting sports at a record pace.
Everyone has a different reason for attending the program, Bach said.
“Shooting is fun,” he said, adding, “It’s a skill that can save your life.”
