Hey all, I live in AZ but my mother-in-law is in NE Wisconsin. Horicon to be exact. She has never taken a firearms course and asked if I knew where she could take one. She is a complete newbie. She has shot handguns 1-2 times. I planned on getting her a course for her birthday. I am looking for good quality instruction for beginners. Can anyone give me any direction?
Is there any local ranges by her?/
That would be the place to ask.
Also, contact the N.R.A. for any instructors in her area.
It sounds as if all she needs is a very basic course and the NRA would be a good start.
In the meantime this DVD would be an excellent source for her:
( It is available from Amazon and several other venues. Do a Google search.)
Mother in laws want massages, not tactical training. No matter what you do, it will be wrong.

Its not about guns...Its about Freedom!
Try contacting Wisconsin Carry, Inc. While they offer free concealed carry classes, they might link your MIL up with a local instructor that could show her the ropes.
The only one I have had personal experience with is Personal Protection Academy. He and his wife do CC courses and individual training. He has access to both indoor and outdoor ranges at the Winnequa Gun Club. Phone (888) 657-4668. He's about a 45 min drive from Horicon. Very professional and personable. Good luck.
