Girl Empowerment: In Their Sights


In December the 2nd Lakeshore Pathfinders went to the Pointe-Claire Rifle Club. After getting geared up with safety goggles and headphones, four by four, we learnt how to properly and safely use firearms. We had the chance to learn about different types of bullets and other firearms. However, we mostly learnt about range safety and how to protect ourselves. Each of us tried shooting three times, and got better and better. Even the leaders got to take some shots on the target and learnt a lot too.


As a souvenir, we got to bring back many different types and sizes of bullet casings. We also kept our targets with the bullet holes in them and the score of our shots. The range officers taught us many things and even brought us brownies. It was an amazing experience and we learnt so much!
