Handgun Basics - For Ladies Only

Course Price: $105.00
Course Times: 8-9 hrs
Course Designer: Dave Jenkins

Ladies: Do you want to learn how to shoot a handgun but don't know where to go to learn? Does your husband/boyfriend/significant other have a firearm or pistol in the home that you do not know how to use? Do you want to see how much fun the shooting sports can be?

Come train with the area's first and most successful Ladies Only training team. There are other places out there that have "Ladies or Women's only" type classes, but you should come and see why our instructors have that certain approach that makes us the top trainers and educators in the area.

We all know that there are certain things that spouses or significant others should not teach each other or discuss, right? They usually include: driving lessons, politics, wallpapering or painting, and firearms. Why not come out and learn from some easy-going, approachable, competent, friendly, and non-testosterone charged instructors?

Learning to handle a pistol is one of the most satisfying, empowering things that you can do.

Come and learn with Rochester Personal Defense, LLC during this ladies only class, you'll be glad you did it! Contact Dave for more info.

    Frequently Asked Questions



    I took the Ladies Concealed Carry Basics course today (06/27/15) in Canandaigua. This class was an awesome experience! I just wanted to say thank you to you, and more importantly, thank you to Wendy, Melodie, and Terri. They were incredible! I immediately felt comfortable with them. From the start, they were friendly, warm, and approachable. They were incredibly knowledgeable. They provided a relaxed and fun setting to learn about the serious topic of firearms. I felt comfortable asking any questions I had, no matter how minor they were. The instructors were patient and really took the time to learn about each woman in the class. There is something about learning in a group comprised soley of women that is empowering. I left class today feeling confident and stronger in my knowledge of my firearm. Thank you for allowing me this opportunity and please extend my sincere appreciation to Wendy, Melodie, and Terri!

    Hi Dave.....I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful seminar I attended on Sunday. It was top notch. All the instructors were wonderful. It was great to finally great to get to know my firearm inside and out and gain the knowledge I needed to safely carry. Firing it was unbelievable. Was surprised I still could do it relatively well. I carried for the first time Monday and felt very good about my decision to exercise my freedom after all these years. I do not feel as vulnerable as I use to. You and your instructors gave that to me Sunday. Be sure, I will be attending more of your classes. Again, thank you so very much. I truly appreciate everything you and your instructors do for us. Hopefully, my husband and I will see you soon on a Tuesday night in Penfield. Best regards,
