Bullets and guns are part of the ladies night parties at Maxon, a Des Plaines gun range and retail store that's seen a steady growth in the number of women showing up to shoot. "We had such a flux of women coming in, we had to change our business dynamics," said Maxon co-owner Claudia Levin, who started the ladies night events two years ago based on demand. "It was a male-dominated sport, but now that's changing. There is no stereotypical shooter."
