Aside from belonging to a range, are there any local gun or self-defense groups you belong to? I know there are groups like Girl and a Gun and Well Armed Women, but what other groups are out there that you recommend? And what kind of events do they host?
If you live in the Frederick Maryland area I very Highly recommend Heritage Training and shooting. They are VERY professional and have one of the cleanest, safest, best run indoor ranges I’ve ever been to. Their classes are also top notch.
Here’s a link to their site
