Concealed Carry For Women

Course Price: $35.00
Course Times: 6pm to 9pm
Course Designer: RPD, LLC NRA Womens Training Division Instructors

In the Concealed Carry For Women class, we will cover safety, operation in a non target shooting environment, carry methods and guns, some defensive skills, and some live fire fun!

This will be a twice monthly class, on a Friday, that will help women learn a lot of information about carrying a handgun for defense and a chance to meet other women, network with them, and begin to progress and become more proficient in their skills.

Please be aware that if you have never fired a handgun or have not attended an NRA Basic Pistol or a couple private lessons with one of our instructors, you should do so first. You do need to have some basic skills before attending the CCW for Women class.

Your first night will build your foundation of knowledge with a demo and lecture about concealed carry, information about the differing holster and carry methods, and some hands on time to see which type of carry you might like. Also, on your first night, you will get some instruction and practice in the classroom with some practice of drawing or getting the gun out.

On your second night, (and every night after that) step by step, you will be introduced to skills and techniques to draw, shoot, move, assess any other threats, and be reliable, safe, and effective while doing so. Above all, we will ensure that you have fun!

Once all of the attendees get comfortable and proficient, we will incorporate some scenario based training, have a fun competition, and help each other learn more!

One thing that will not be in the class: An overabundance of testosterone induced instructors!

Note: As of 4/4/2012, ANY holster that utilizes the index or trigger finger of the shooting hand to disengage a locking device to release the handgun is now disallowed from ANY Rochester Personal Defense, LLC class, training, event, or any function that we host or have involvement with. I am also implementing the same on Tuesday Night’s CCW Shoot. For more information, please visit the following page: or email us.
