ATHENS, Ala. – March 2, 2023 – Shoot Like A Girl, a brand of SLG2, Inc., is bringing their 2023 15-Year Expansiontour to Bass Pro Shops in Tampa, Florida this weekend for an interactive event that introduces women and their families to shooting sports in a fun, safe and comfortable atmosphere. New and experienced shooters and their families are invited to stop by the Shoot Like A Girl trailer in front of Bass Pro Shops on Saturday, March 4 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, March 5 from 10 a.m. to 3p.m.
Shoot Like A Girl’s recent event at Bass Pro Shops in Daytona Beach, Florida was a record breaker. With 441 guests in attendance, locals, families and Daytona 500 fans experienced the impact of the Shoot Like A Girl instructors and mission.
“My favorite moment from Daytona tells the story of a 16-year-old girl battling cancer whose father brought her to shoot a bow inside the trailer,” said Karen Butler, founder and CEO of SLG2, Inc. “This moving moment came with pure emotions as she looked at her dad after releasing that first arrow and said, ‘Dad! This is SO MUCH FUN!’ I continue to be amazed watching so many women face their fears, showing great courage as they step into the shooting sports experience.”
What to Expect
Both new and experienced shooters are encouraged to stop by the Shoot Like A Girl mobile range event to learn more about ways to get involved in shooting sports. Inside the mobile range, using a military-grade firearm simulator which provides immediate recoil, impact and sound feedback, guests who are 18 years of age or older will gain confidence through handling and shooting handguns and long guns through this immersive event. Guests will also be supported by archery coaches through a live archery demonstration, allowing attendees to experience archery firsthand and learn more about the sport through hands-on instruction.
Shoot Like A Girl strives to empower women through shooting sports demonstrations and events while opening a discussion surrounding sports and outdoors. Attendees are encouraged to bring their families and children to discuss and learn more about firearm safety in a comfortable and controlled environment. No experience is necessary to participate in this free event, and all equipment is provided to guests upon their arrival.
