Our one and one half day ladies only basic handgun clinic is designed to provide a safe, relaxed learning environment without the pressure associated with coed classes. Combining elements of our NRA Basic Pistol and our Basic Defensive Pistol Classes, the clinic is designed to take students, from those who have never fired a gun before to those with some experience, to a level of capability and confidence rapidly and enjoyably. Our goal is to have you leave the range at the end of the clinic fully understanding weapons safety and function, and being able to put shots on target where you want them. So wear comfortable clothes that you won't mind getting dirty, come on out and join in the fun.

- How to safely operate, store, transport, and maintain your firearm
- How your firearm operates
- Different types of ammunition and their use
- Basic marksmanship
- What to do when your gun malfunctions
Expectations and Outcomes
Our clinics are designed to teach you how to use your handgun, so you'll spend the remainder of the time on the range with your gun in your hand. You'll start off learning the four basics of marksmanship; how to properly hold your gun, how to align your sights on the target, how to control your breathing so your sights stay on target, and how to squeeze the trigger instead of jerking it. Once you have had the basics explained to you to your satisfaction, you'll shoot a series of fun drills at short distances so you can take the lessons from theory to practice.
