You asked and we listened, we have created a Ladies Only Firearms class, Sorry Guys but you'll have to sit this one out. This 8 hour class is for all the armed or soon to be armed Diva's out there. The ladies will learn NRA’s rules for safe gun handling; pistol parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; range rules; shooting from the bench rest position, and two handed standing positions; cleaning the pistol; and continued opportunities for skill development.
In this class you will start by shooting a .22LR caliber revolver and then progress to a full size 9mm, a full size .40 caliber and a compact .45 caliber semi-automatic. By shooting various sizes and calibers it should give you a good idea of what size frame and caliber is right for you.

Defensive Strategies, LLC is proud to be one of the founding members of the Second Amendment Firearms Training & Education Association, and we offer the entire course line up. The firearms training community has lacked a nationwide training program specifically directed at training the new and inexperienced shooter in the defensive use of the most common platforms of firearms – handguns, shotguns and carbines. Over the past 5 years the Second Amendment Firearms Training & Education Association (SAFTEA) has embarked on the development of just such a training program.
Beginning in early 2014 experienced trainers from throughout the country were recruited to act as the core of SAFTEA and to begin the development of a number of foundation courses. The initial offerings include MOI – Methods of Instruction, Defensive Handgun 1, Defensive Handgun 2, Defensive Shotgun 1, Defensive Shotgun 2, Defensive Carbine 1 and Defensive Carbine 2 in addition to instructor level course work to train a national cadre of firearms instructors to offer SAFTEA courses throughout the nation.
