    Hi Y'all

    New Texas gal here.

    I'm beginning a ladies only handgun and home defense class later this month, hoping to wind up with my CHL. I've been around guns all my life, although I haven't shot much in the past 20 years or so. I am a card carrying member of the NRA. My dad has been my go-to person on firearms issues, but he is not all that active these days. I'm hoping I can pick y'all's brains every now and then, and maybe do a little socializing.

    Hi from Massachusetts and welcome to the forum. I wanted to mention that my gun club runs about 4 "ladies only" firearms training courses (NRA certified) per year and they are all very well attended. Our club house only accommodates about 20 people at a time (plus instructors who are mostly women but sometimes men) and we have a waiting list that goes out at least 6 months. We've found that women often prefer to do such courses without men in the class since men think they already know everything :) They get a half day of classroom and a half day of shooting rifle, shotgun, semi-auto pistol and revolver after which they can apply for their CCW if they desire. I just wish we could take more people since the demand is so great. I highly encourage others who may be involved in gun clubs to have training specifically for women, the feedback we get is awesome!

    Hello, Lena, and welcome from Missouri to a really great forum. Good people and info here!

    It is great that you are starting a self defense instructional setup for ladies. You may want to check out the many free YouTube videos made by Massad Ayoob, a world-class instructor in handgun use and self defense, who has recorded training sessions in Judicious Use of Force, Shoot to Live, Home Invasion, Preparation for Home Defense, and What to Do After a Shooting. Just Google his name and these topics and the YouTubes should show up. Very good instructional information from an expert, and free. This may help give you some ideas and "homework" for your students!

    And, best wishes for a safe, prosperous New Year to you and yours.
