Ladies’ Handgun Defense Course

Event Description

This course is designed to train the women of our church to be confident and proficient with a handgun to protect themselves and their loved ones.  This course will include multiple sessions over the next several months, both in the classroom and on the gun range.  It will include, but not be limited to:

  • The classroom and range training to apply for a Texas License to Carry (if you don’t already have one)
  • Choosing the right handgun
  • Handgun safety
  • Proper shooting techniques
  • Legal issues related to defending yourself
  • Thinking and acting defensively
  •  Low light situations
  • Cover and concealment
  • Active shooter training
  • Carry/storage techniques
  • Non-lethal defensive tools

This course will begin on Saturday, August 3rd, 2024. Ideally, students should plan to attend ALL the training sessions, but there are a few that are mandatory:

  • FIRST SESSION:  Saturday, August 3rd from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM. This session will be in the Fellowship Hall at the church, and will last 4-5 hours.  This August 3rd session is mandatory, since all other sessions will build on this one.
  • SECOND SESSION:  Monday, August 5th at 7:30 PM:  This will be at the gun range, and is mandatory for those needing a Texas LTC.  It is optional for all others.
  • After these first two sessions, there will be another session every 2-3 weeks.
  • Full schedule will be available on August 3rd.
  • Cost is $25 per person (covers range fees, targets, handouts, etc.).
