    Here at Governors Gun Club, we love for our women to feel comfortable and empowered while holding and using their firearms for target practice, as many prepare for self-defense. This class will be taught mainly by women, to women, to facilitate a common view of learning for all the basic knowledge necessary to work towards firearm proficiency.

    In this class, the 4 universal rules of firearm safety will be learned & stressed as well as the responsibilities of a firearm owner; how a firearm functions, ammunition basics, malfunctions of both firearms and ammunition will be presented.  Students will learn the basic method to clear firearm and ammunition malfunctions. Additionally, the 5 fundamentals of proficient shooting will also be taught.

    Our female students will also learn the differences in semi-automatic handguns and as well as revolvers.  For women seeking out their first firearm, this information will assist them in narrowing down which specific firearms they may want to explore as their first gun.

    Students will have the opportunity to become familiar with their firearms in regards to manipulation of the gun prior to live fire on the range (classroom dry practice).

    There will be extensive knowledge provided through this course.  Don’t miss out!

    Students MUST show up 15 minutes prior to the start of the class.  Late shows will be asked to reschedule the class.

    This will be a 5-hour course with lunch catered by our Member’s Restaurant & Lounge included!
