Hands On Instruction

Our In-person classes provide hands-on instruction, allowing you to receive immediate feedback and guidance from certified instructors. This can be particularly valuable for improving firearm handling skills, marksmanship, and addressing any questions or concerns you may have.

Classroom Interaction

In a classroom setting, you have the opportunity to interact with other participants who may share their experiences, insights, and perspectives on firearm safety and handling firearms. Networking with fellow students and instructors can lead to valuable discussions and shared knowledge.

Safety Training

In-person classes often include practical demonstrations and live-fire exercises that provide you with essential hands-on safety training. These experiences help reinforce firearm safety principles, emergency procedures, and the importance of responsible gun handling in a controlled and supervised environment.

Pistol 101/Self Defense Class Overview

This class is based on our general Pistol 101 and Self Defense class but is exclusive to ladies with specially designed content by a woman for women of all ages who are interested in personal and/or family safety as well as the development of their shooting skills for both self defense and recreation. We understand that shooting can be intimidating, so we take all the time necessary to make sure you feel comfortable with all aspects of self defense.

The call for courses such as this, that cater to women, has grown exponentially over the last few years. Our course answers the call to deliver a quality thorough class that goes beyond just the basics of self defense. Our class teaches the proper use and safe handling of a pistol, pepper spray, as well as basic self defense tactics/techniques as well as their effective application.

Specific Topics:

What is situational awareness and how to apply it in everyday life as well as self defense situations
Unarmed self defense techniques
Various optional self defense alternatives (i.e. proper utilization of pepper spray, how to use a knife to protect yourself, etc.)
Laws specifically designed to protect women (i.e. stalking laws, etc.)
Reasons why to carry a handgun and why not to
Basic pistol safety and handling (we will learn not only safety but to work smarter not harder when working our slides and loading our weapons)
Pistol marksmanship (we cover your stance, grip, sight alignment trigger control, and breathing when learning to shoot correctly)
Carrying concealed in the real world — tips, tricks and gray areas
Carry methods that are both reasonable and effective for everyday life
Live-fire instruction and practice (for safety, accuracy and comfort with your pistol)

Required Equipment:

Eye Protection
Ear Protection
Hat with brim/bill
Close toed shoes
2 Magazines (or 1 speed loader if using a revolver)
Ammunition (Atleast 200 Rounds minimum. Factory produced ammo only, no home reloads allowed due to insurance.)

Focused On Women

This class is designed to help you get past any challenges and help you determine what is the best strategy for you and fits your personal style. The ability to hide a pistol on a woman’s body is an art form unto itself, trying to hide straight lines on curves can be quite challenging. If carrying on your person is not for you, we can present some other carry options (i.e. fanny packs, purses, etc.).

Equipment can be arranged/provided with advance request. If you have not chosen a specific pistol we can provide various makes and models to see which one is the right fit for you.
