For Women, By Women – Introduction To Handgun Shooting And Ownership

Taught by Janet Norris & Kriss Costa

Venturing into the word of handguns can be intimidating to ANY new shooter. But in most training programs the language, training styles and resources available are primarily developed with men in mind. For many women this results in a classroom and range training atmosphere that doesn't fit their needs.

In this class we aim to help our female students learn how to safely and confidently handle a firearm, while addressing the unique challenges women may face while learning to shoot. In the classroom portion of the class, students learn the basics of handguns including the hows and whys of handgun functions. In the live fire portion of the class, students will have the opportunity to shoot semi-automatic handguns in .22, 380, 9mm and 45 calibers as well as revolvers in .22 and 38 calibers. Students may also bring their own handgun for individual coaching.

This class consists of 5 hours of instruction, of both classroom time and live fire on the range. $195.00.
