The story reports that Legally Armed founder and firearms instructor Rick Ector said 700 women registered for the event held at Top Gun Shooting Sports. About 600 showed up for class.
"We teach women how to shoot and discharge a firearm, and a personal protection strategy," Ector said in the story, adding that many of his graduates have had to display and sometimes use their concealed carry firearm to defend themselves against an attacker.
The class has grown in large spurts every year, from 50 students the first time around. This years 600 attendees were composed of women of all ages, from 12-year-old Kassidy Johnson who was there with her mother for some range time.
