We are the Shooting Star Eastern NC Chapter.

I am Tricia Collins, Ingrid Shappard and Donna Paulson are the Chapter Leaders. We have been friends for years and on a journey together to learn more about firearms, personal protection and woman in shooting sports. 

We love teaching and empowering other women and are so excited you have reached out for more info.

We meet the second Sunday of every month from 2-4:30. For those that go to church we have timed this in-between services and remember it’s only once a month. 

Our address is Kenly but don’t let that scare you; we are no more than 25 mins from Zebulon, Smithfield, Selma, Clayton and Wilson. (Four Oaks 30 min, Benson 40 min Goldsboro 45 min.)

Our Chapter meeting fee is $10 every meeting you attend. (Whether you shoot with us or not.)

 We shoot on a outdoor private range. So you’ll need to wear appropriate clothing for outside elements.  We will shoot in the rain if you are willing. Bad guys don’t stop for the rain so neither will we.

The way our meeting works is the first hour is class time.  We go over topic relevant to our ladies, shooting and personal protection or we have a guest speaker.  The second hour is range time.  That is the time we work on skills with our firearms.  We also have some ladies working through their NRA Marksmanship patches.  

Please bring your eye and ear protection, as well as your firearm if you have one, and ammunition to each meeting.  If you do not have one, you can rent one from us for a nominal fee.
  We do communicate with everyone through e-mail or text for pertinent information.  We look very forward to seeing you at our next meeting!  The first meeting you attend is free.

Only members are allowed to participate in the shooting portion.

Please let us know when you plan on attending we try to make sure we have alittle extra time for ladies that are checking out our chapter. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
