Women’s Basic Pistol and Handgun Selection Class

A pistol and handgun class for women, by women. Your class will be taught by three female NRA Certified Instructors. The format is slow paced and easy going. Class sizes are kept small and welcoming. You will learn in class:

  • The basics of safe gun handling and shooting
  • Tips on personal protection, situational awareness, and avoiding confrontations in and out of the home
  • The secrets of marksmanship


This class is perfect for women with little or no experience and may be uneasy around firearms, but also a great review of the fundamentals for experienced shooters. 20 different models are available for use making this class a great handgun selection class. Personal firearms are welcome as well. Live fire is offered at a 1:1 ratio and progresses to 2:1 on an individual basis as the shooter’s confidence builds. .22 caliber pistols will be used during live-fire exercises and students will also have the opportunity to shoot more defensive calibers in 9mm, .380 ACP, .38 Special, and .45 ACP.

Included in the tuition is the use of handguns, hearing, and eye protection. Also provided are ammunition, coffee, snacks, bottled water, and a hot lunch.

A certificate of completion will be awarded.

Tuition is $175 (Ask about group discounts.)
