Spraker came up with the idea when she asked her son if his female
friends enjoyed going to the gun range just as much as he and his male
friends did. After realizing that most of the girls just stayed back and
watched them shoot, she decided to do something about it.
“What we discovered in the years from then until now, is an amazing

empowerment and what it does to their self esteem,” Spraker told the Peninsula Clarion.
Spraker’s firearms training program, called Teens on Target, is
supported by Friends of the National Rifle Association, Safari Club
International and the Snowshoe Gun Club.
The eight week course takes young women ages 13-17 and teaches them
basics about gun safety and how to shoot different types of guns such as
shotguns, handguns and rifles. Those that want to take part in the
course only have to pay $35 to join. Guns and ammunition are donated by
Spraker and her husband.
