Class Summary
This segment is designed to reach students who are brand new to firearms (and maybe have never picked up a gun before) and dig a little deeper into topics learned in Women's Basic Pistol. It's about learning the essentials and gaining that extra confidence and knowledge up front so you can be ready to take the next steps in your training.  All in all, this course is all about sharing the basics – along with the fun, the seriousness, and the importance of being a responsibly armed female.  After all, we are worth protecting.  We'll take a closer look at types of firearms and ammunition, as well as learn about how firearms work.  We'll also cover tips and tactics for selecting handguns and holsters.  While Women's Intermediate Pistol is not a defensive pistol class, you will be introduced to the right mindset for self-defense.  And though this is not a marksmanship class, the drills we use will challenge your skills with the goal of bringing you up to the next level.

Class will last for six hours. We will take a break every 45-60 minutes. Please plan your schedule accordingly.  A separate time will be arranged for range practice.
