Short Description:  A class for women that are beginner shooters where students can shoot several different types of handguns and get an idea of which one to buy for their specific needs and also receive training with a home defense shotgun.  Or, if you have your own handgun, bring it and learn the correct way to shoot your gun and be safe with it.  We cover the basics of stance, grip, sight alignment, sight picture, breathing, trigger squeeze, and follow through and more.  Both classroom and range time.  This course will prepare you to take your concealed carry class. Teaching safe gun handling is always the main priority.  This six hour class is for women only.   We have a covered shooting range.

  • Students will shoot fourteen different firearms.

  • Students will  shoot revolvers and semi-automatics handguns.
  • Students will  learn how to shoot a home defense shotgun.
  • All guns and ammunition will be provided (over a $100 value)
  • Learn in the company of women.
  • Learn in a safe and friendly environment.

  • We will help you select the handgun that is right for you.

The most important thing I can tell you after conducting this class for four + years is that is pays to learn which gun if right for you.  Basically, most of the time a husband, boyfriend, and some salesmen, do not understand fitting and selecting a gun for a woman.  You will benefit greatly by actually shooting  different sizes and calibers of guns to find a gun that is right for you.  Also talking to a woman instructor,  Audrey Ethriedge,  will help you relate and learn about guns.

Shooting a gun and being accurate is much harder than it appears on TV or the Movies.   Also, a woman may have a smaller hand or trouble operating certain guns which makes buying the correct gun all the more critical.

Buying a handgun without first shooting it is like buying a new house and never seeing the inside.


NOTE:  This clinic can be customized to fit your needs.  For example, if you already know the basics but would like to shoot a variety of handguns to get a better idea of which gun you would like to carry, we can work with you.
