‘I am a woman, who carries a gun — and I am alive and safe today because of it.’
from a Riclin Firearms Training LLC student who was forced to use her concealed handgun in self defense…
Riclin Firearms Training, LLC offers several classes specifically for women. Women tend to learn differently than men. We have also seen that once women are introduced to shooting, many become very good at it. In many cases, we have seen a woman outshoot her husband (and generally their husband is quite pleased). We have taught many women in each of the classes we offer.
Women’s Basic Pistol Class…based on the NRA Basic Pistol Class, this class teaches you the basic skills needed to safely handle and shoot a handgun. This is a good place to begin if you have never done any shooting or are concerned about your ability to safely handle a pistol. The class begins with safety, then moves on to the six basic handgun shooting fundamentals. We also discuss various types of ammunition, what to look for when you are purchasing a pistol, and do quite a bit of shooting as well.
Women’s Defensive Shooting Class…this class is for the woman who is interested in learning to defend herself with a handgun. As with all our classes, this one begins with safety, and then progress to a variety of defensive shooting techniques. This class is taught at two different levels. One is a beginner’s level where we begin with how to shoot a handgun and then evolve to the defensive techniques. The second level is for the woman who is familiar with handgun shooting, is interested in learning defensive shooting techniques but is not particularly interested in obtaining a license to carry a concealed handgun. If you are not sure which level of this class you should consider, just ask. We will help you figure it out.
New Mexico Concealed Handgun Carry Class for Women…similar to our regular Concealed Carry class, this one is taught focusing on the specific needs of women who wish to carry a canceled handgun while also covering the requirements of the Concealed Handgun Act. Upon completion of this class, women are eligible to apply for the New Mexico Concealed Handgun License.
Individualized Classes for Women…as the name indicates, any class we teach can be taught on an individual basis, focusing on the needs of the particular student. We have a great deal of experience teaching women and many have opted to receive individualized instruction rather than take a class with others. Other women go on to individualized instruction after completing one of more of our regular classes. Some women have come with unique needs or requirements and we have been able to work with them in their unique circumstances.
