Not your typical night out with the girls

Over a dozen women enjoyed a night at the gun range Thursday.

For most of them, it was their first time.

Patrick's Shooting Range said they started the Ladies Night so women feel more comfortable around guns.

"This is an opportunity for the women to come in and not be embarrassed for feel silly because they don't know what they are doing. They are able to come in and get instruction, a lot of hands on one on one instruction," said Pat Grace of Patrick's Gun Range.

Savannah Chatham Metro Police Officers were also on hand to help teach the ladies how to load their weapons.

Patrick's said they'll have a Ladies Night the first and third Thursday of every month.
