Women's Only Introduction to Handguns

This course is not an NRA course.  The course is designed for women that would like an introduction to firearms before making a decision to obtain their concealed carry handgun permit or to become educated on the safe operation, function and care of handguns.  This class is a great class to take for an introduction if your knowledge of pistols is none to limited. The class will take part in both class room and range time and will last approximately 4 hours.  Lady’s will learn the difference between revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. We will discuss the rules for safe gun handling; pistol parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; shooting from the Weaver and isosceles position as well as the low ready position and cleaning the pistol. This class may be used as a precursor for the NC Justice Academy Concelaed Carry Class.   It will prepare you for the CCH class, both in the classroom and in the shooting qualification test.  This class is not the same as a Concealed Carry Handgun Class for Women only.  We do offer a women’s only Concealed Carry Handgun Class.

The objective of this class is to give women an opportunity to discuss openly their concerns, issues and potential insecurity with firearms regardless of intent.  Your goal maybe just to make sure you are safe knowing you have firearms in your home.

Eye and Ear protection required for all shooting classes.  If you don’t have eye and ear protection, please feel free to use our equipment. 

Cost: $50/$75

*Note - the $75 option gives the student the availability of trying over 30 different handuns in order to experience the differences in size, shape,  and funtion as related to women.  You will also be supplied with one box (50) rounds of various ammunition.

Time: 4 hrs


A special interest group with Take AIm Carolina that is dedicated to women and firearms.  This group is geared toward women that have no experience and wanting to get involved, but not sure how or where to get involved, along with women with experience seeking a group to meet with concerning issues women face with firearms.  This group meets in the summer and provides a social outing for women to meet and discuss firearm views from a women's perspective and includes shooting time at the range after the social event at a local sponsored restaurant.
