Firearms Training for Women



women at the range Women are now the biggest demographic for both pistol training and concealed carry classes. Why is that? Probably because the family demographic has changed. There are now more women living alone than ever before, either as singles, or as single parents, and they know they need a "Plan B" in case of emergency. As population density grows, there are more home invasions, burglaries, and car-jackings than ever before. Women, of course, are also often victims of stalking, date rape, assault, and domestic abuse. It is true that the odds are against these happening to you, but they happen to someone every day. Most police officers go their whole career without using their gun, but a gun is like a parachute; if you ever need one and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

Increasingly, women are seeking to empower themselves, to take home safety measures, and learn how to protect themselves, to prevent rape and violent crime. Many are taking judo, or boxing, and gun ownership among women is up 77% since 2005. The drawback to judo and boxing is that they require more physical (or psychological) assertiveness than some women might want to muster. A handgun or shotgun levels the playing field, although it is sometimes intimidating in other ways.

women in class We understand that dynamic, and welcome ladies into our classes. You will never be treated as less capable of learning handgun usage than anyone else. It is simply a new experience.

However, it is worth noting that women require some special attention. Because of differences in internal physiology, women will tend to balance differently. Some women have smaller hands and wrists than others, and may find that the grips of some guns do not fit right, or some slides are difficult to rack. Choosing the right gun can make all the difference, and an instructor can help with that.
Classes
Learn to Shoot:   $65.00
  Pistol 101, for beginners or near beginners. You start with an emphasis on safety, learn how guns work, how to load them, action types, stance, grip, aiming, and trigger control,and progress to shooting several different handguns, typically .380, .38, and 9mm.
Intermediate Shooting:   $65.00
  For those who already know how to load, fire, and clear their gun, this live-fire pistol instruction is intended to fine-tune your skills. Attention is given to the complete shooting platform:
  • foot position
  • stance
  • arm position
  • grip
  • eye dominance
  • sight picture
  • breathing control
  • trigger control
  • follow-through
Close-in targets (3-yd) are used to determine the difference between Point-of-Aim and Point-of-Impact, and targets further out (5-10 yds) are used to work on achieving shot groups.

Weather permitting, training is given at our private outdoor range NE of McKinney.

Length: approx 1 hour
Texas License to Carry Class: $75.00
  Concealed/Open Handgun License class. Required by the state, this class covers the law, safe storage, and other topics. There is a written test and a shooting proficiency test. This is a No Fail course.
Defensive Shotgun: $65.00
  Introduction to the tactical shotgun. This is a devastating weapon, yet requires relatively little skill to operate. In the case of a home invasion, it would be close to impossible to miss an intruder with this beast, and you would probably only have to fire it once. This is becoming a very popular choice for SHTF situations.
