Let's face it: Many women shooters—even very experienced ones—find themselves the subject of unsolicited advice on the range. Gunsite Instructor Il Ling New shows you how to get back to your range time...unimpeded.
You know the type. He might be a regular at the gun club, or he’s there with his buddies for a day shoot or maybe he’s by himself zeroing his rifle. He eyes you with your firearm, and as soon as he can get a moment alone with you, he sidles up. “Hey Lil’ Lady…” it starts…and even if he doesn’t say it out loud, you just know he’s thinking it. He tells you why you’re doing whatever you’re doing is wrong. He tells you how to do whatever you’re doing better. He offers to help. If you’re a woman, and you’ve spent any time on the range at all—especially if you’ve been unattended—you’ve probably met the “Hey Little Lady” type.
