The Women's Handgun Series was developed to provide a progressive set of mini two-hour sessions to teach a specific level and allow the learner to practice and study before the next level session. It is a women-only series taught by a female instructor (who was also just as intimidated by handguns when she started learning).

ALL levels of experience are encouraged to attend - from women just considering handguns to concealed carry holders.

You do not need to own a firearm to attend - as a matter of fact, this series can help you understand how to choose the right firearm for you!

We have firearms rentals available for a small fee and ammunition available for purchase (subject to availability and current prices).

Women's Basic Pistol

In this mini-session we cover the very basics of handguns. These include: firearms safety; handling a firearm - for shooting, as well as when you are in an off-range situation; other fundamentals for effective shooting. We will be using training firearms and dry-fire laser practice (no live ammo or gun range).

There is no prerequisite for this session.

Women's Intermediate Pistol

Adding to the basic handling skills from the previous session, the intermediate mini-session includes: the functioning of handguns and ammo; holster and carry options; situational awareness; and bringing the fundamentals together. We will be using training firearms and dry-fire laser practice (no live ammo or gun range).

This session is recommended after the Basic pistol session.

Women's Defensive Pistol

This most advanced mini-session includes: the Mindset of defense; use of force; cover vs. concealment; point shooting; and methods of draw in a defensive situation. We will be using training firearms and dry-fire laser practice (no live ammo or gun range).

This session requires completion of the Intermediate pistol session.
