About the event

Women’s Handgun & Self Defense Fundamentals

USCCA’s “Women’s Handgun & Self-Defense Fundamentals” is a welcoming and engaging training

guide created by a woman for women who are seeking to begin, improve upon, or add to their

firearms skills. With three distinct modules:

Who is this class for?

Women’s Basic Pistol, Women’s Intermediate Pistol, and Women’s Defensive Pistol. Each module

will address beginners, including those who have NEVER touched a handgun, intermediate, and to

the more “seasoned” shooter.

What subjects will be reviewed?

Basics and fundamentals will be introduced, reviewed, and then built upon (stance, grip, sight

alignment, sight picture, trigger control, breath control, follow through), racking the slide, loading

magazine, and shooting live fire, while also exploring situational awareness, common types of

handguns & choosing the right weapon for you (holster and conceal carry options, inside & outside

the waist band, conceal carry purses & bags, bra, thigh, and ankle), nomenclature of a bullet, cycle

of operations, ammunition types, malfunctions, firearms handling skills, defensive pistol

fundamentals, and the use of deadly force.

We will be examining real life situations and having open dialogue using scenarios that are likely to

occur to us as women. This class will push your comfort zone! But the biggest difference is you have

a class full of women here to encourage and lift you up!!!

What to bring?

A pistol, handgun, or revolver (if you prefer) and approximately 50 rounds of appropriate

ammunition. A magazine or 2 (or 3, 4, 5…). Hearing and eye protection (prescription glasses count

as protection). Closed toed shoes.

If you have No gun, No ammo, and NO hearing or eye protection. DO NOT DESPAIR! American

Arms has guns for you to rent and ammo to purchase and will lend you hearing and eye protection.

We even have SNACKS! Water and coffee are provided for free and so are the granola bars. This is

a class that is scheduled for 8 hours, which doesn’t mean it will take us that long, however, we will

break for a ½ hour to allow you to eat a lunch, or you can leave to go to the near-by Johnny’s

Junction (there is a Dollar General, a Marathon Gas station, and a gas station across the SR 37

highway that has sandwiches).

-There are things you think you’ll never need to know that you may only need to know one

time in your life but could save your life because you had that knowledge.
