Women’s Advanced Defensive Handgun Class

To enable women to be safer in an uncertain world, the Women’s Advanced Handgun Class provides women an opportunity to improve their defensive handgun skills beginning with basic firearm safety review and developing a defensive mindset. Geared specifically towards women, the class will also review of the New Mexico law on the use of deadly force.

Basic and advanced shooting and gun handling techniques will be drilled extensively. A variety of scenarios will be presented to give the women a realistic perspective of the defensive use of a handgun.

Because many assaults against women occur at night or during low light hours, the class will include shooting at night to enable to students to become familiar with shooting after dark.

This is not a beginner’s class. The student must already be very familiar with their handgun and comfortable with its use. Basic shooting and gun handling skills are required to take this class. By the end of the class you will be surprised and pleased with what you will be able to do with a handgun.

Equipment and supplies needed:

  • An open mind
  • Center fire handgun and holster (must be concealable…covering with a shirt is OK)
  • Approximately 250 rounds of ammunition (bring more, you never know what we might do)
  • At least 2 magazines or speed loaders/strips…more is better
  • A flashlight you can operate with one hand
  • Eye and ear protection
