One Day, Low Stress Level: Class is designed for women who want to learn the basic handgun skills required for personal defense in a smaller group setting. Student to instructor ratio (5:1), makes this session safe and comfortable for our students.

This full day course is for women who are unfamiliar with range procedures and firearm safety or need to learn how to correctly shoot a pistol. Course is designed to teach the student basic knowledge and attitudes necessary for selecting, owning, and using the handgun of their choice safely and effectively. This course will introduce the basic handgun handling skills required for personal defense. It introduces the shooter to the skills, training, mindset and methodology necessary to properly handle a firearm.
The lower round count of this course is easier on the hands. The small class with a maximum five to one student to instructor ratio makes it easier for women to discuss concerns about various topics such as hand strength, recoil management, type of handgun, safe carry, and storage of a pistol. Mindset and personal awareness are at the forefront of everything we teach in this course.
If you do not have a State of Florida Concealed Weapon License already, this course qualifies you for it.
