Ladies Beginner Handgun Class

Ladies Beginner Handgun Class

Class Description

This class is designed for ladies with no previous experience handling handguns. Our goal is to make sure you are safe and confident, starting with the four rules of safety, giving you the foundational knowledge you need to handle your handgun, and developing your marksmanship. We want to empower you to defend yourself and your loved ones.

After a short presentation at our Alaska Tactical training room, we’ll spend the majority of the day at the range. Our first step will be a dryfire (no ammunition in gun) sequence that will familiarize you with your handgun. You’ll practice and know what each button and lever does, how to run the slide, and how to press check. We’ll show you the best stances and grips, then show you how to align your sights and press the trigger.

When you know how it all works, we’ll start shooting live rounds so you can develop your marksmanship. No stress if it’s not perfect at first, our qualified instructors are there to help. We’ll make sure you have plenty of time to practice your new skills.

You will leave this class with a solid base in safety, knowing how your handgun operates, and being able to hit your target. You will load, unload, and reload your weapon. Our instructors will show you everything you need to know, personalized to your handgun and your specific needs.

“I recently took the Level 1 Pistol class with my girlfriend, who was terrified of firearms, and it was an amazing experience. I can honestly say this class really reassured, corrected, and improved our fundamentals. I trained with Steve and Danny, amazing instructors…”

“Great class and an awesome experience. The instructors took time to work one-on-one with students and help fine-tune even them most minor details to get the most of every shot. I’m looking forward to an excuse to come to Anchorage again soon.”
