If you have ever tried to learn anything from your husband, boyfriend, dad, etc., you'll know how frustrating that can be. At DSA™ we have removed the stressful element of learning firearms skills in front of men. There’s no yelling, no pressure, and no demeaning, arrogant firearms instructors talking down to you in our course. We designed it just for you. No men are allowed to even come and watch or listen, so that element of pressure is fully removed. Whether you have never handled a firearm before or you are an experienced competition shooter, this course has been proven to benefit both.

What you will find we have created for you is a very RELAXED, STRESS FREE, FUN ATMOSPHERE to enjoy learning how firearms work and: how to hold them; aim them; stand with them; carry them; load them; unload them; and, shoot them with proficiency.
