During the weekend, just over 1,400 women gathered in Detroit to receive personal one-on-one firearms training from National Rifle Association Board Director and Firearms Instructor Rick Ector for the 12th Annual training.
“We had zero injuries, no one was hurt, we did a good thing, “ Ector said in an interview with Michigan News Source, “We put a lot of women on the path to personal protection and taking care of their families – being sure that they can do what they can to learn more to be safe in our community.”

The event hosted more than 1,400 women ages 12 and up who had the option to learn individualized firearms safety and shooting training from qualified instructors.
“The manpower was ample and we didn’t have as many as I thought we needed, but the instructors that were there were doubly committed to ensure that we didn’t turn anyone away and that we remained safe the entire time we conducted the activity,” Ector said in the interview.
