The event features Shoot Like A Girl’s state-of-the-art Road Range with FATS by InVeris Training Solutions, where guests can experience the thrill of shooting under the guidance of certified female instructors.

The instructors will guide participants through procedures required for the safe handling of firearms and share valuable insights on outdoor accessories. The event aims to promote confidence within shooting sports, encourage people to participate and introduce women and their families to the sport in a fun, safe and comfortable atmosphere.

“We are thrilled to kick off our Elevate Tour at Bass Pro Shops to celebrate the Daytona 500,” said Karen Butler, founder and president of SLG2. “Throughout the years, we have had 36,578 signed in attendees, and our survey results provide insight into the positive impact we have made to them, our partners and the shooting sports industry. Our goal is to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment where people can learn about shooting sports and gain confidence in their abilities.”

Both new and experienced shooters, along with their families, are invited to attend the free event. Guests can expect a wide range of activities inside the mobile range. Those aged 18 and above can handle and shoot handguns and long guns using a firearm simulator.
