Milwaukee - The National Rifle Association is working to boost its roster to 8,000 certified female gun instructors. It's doing so by organizing "women on targets" training clinics nationwide. The group held 450 clinics for 12,000 women in 2013.

CBS 58 spoke with the owner of a gun shop and shooting range in West Allis. The owner says she isn't surprised by the growing trend. Jessica Grabowski says in the past year, she has seen a 75% increase in  women who come to her business. Grabowski says more women want to learn how to use a firearm for safety reasons.
