This class is a women's only class that is designed to give you the confidence and training you need to never be a victim. This is a beginner class that will teach you the basic fundamentals. In this course we focus on pistol safety and proper shooting fundamentals. We cover beginner aspects such as stance, proper grip, sight alignment, sight picture, trigger control, recoil control, loading and unloading, and numerous other skills needed to begin shooting handguns confidently.

This course also aids students who are thinking of buying their first handgun. After learning the proper fundamentals and mechanics of a pistol, you will be better prepared when you enter gun stores. Don’t let the salesman talk you into a pistol that doesn’t work for you. Instead, go shopping with confidence knowing exactly what you want and need and how to actually use it.
