    The "Shoot Like A Girl" mobile range is making a stop in North Texas this weekend.

    The semitractor-trailer will be parked outside Bass Pro Shops in Grapevine.

    Inside the mobile simulation range, women 16 years old or older, can shoot pistols, rifles and compound bows.

    "There is something really self-satisfying about aiming at a target, squeezing a trigger and releasing an arrow and hitting exactly where you want to… it just makes you feel good," said Karen Butler, president and founder of Shoot Like A Girl.

    Saturday, dozens of women checked out the mobile range on one of its stops in The Great American Tour.

    Amy Stack, from McKinney, had never shot a firearm before.

    "My husband encouraged me to go on in because I never shot before, and I wasn't comfortable around guns," Stack said.

    Stack learned about gun safety and how to properly handle firearms.

    "I did something out of my comfort zone and really enjoyed it," she said.

    Traci Rodney also attended the event.

    A wave of floods, hail and tornados swept the Midwest over the weekend, from Nebraska to Texas. Storm chaser Connor McCrorey caught a Minneola, Kansas, tornado on tape moments before the edges of it brushed against his car.

    "I'm a shooter and I like shooting," Rodney said.

    Rodney said she wanted to meet and learn from the ladies behind "Shoot Like A Girl."

    "I'm at a male-dominated store, but yet I'm able to talk with the women and feel comfortable asking questions and getting familiar with guns," she said.

    All of the teachers Saturday were women and NRA-certified instructors.

    The "Shoot Like A Girl" mobile range will be open Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Bass Pro Shops in Grapevine.
