What should I wear?

For safety reasons, please wear closed-toe shoes, a high-neck T-shirt or button-up shirt, and bring a hat, ball cap, or visor with a brim. If your class is outdoors, please also plan for weather... a rain jacket or sweater may be needed. 

Do I need my own gun and ammo? What equipment do I need?

This will depend on the class you are taking. For beginner classes and Concealed Carry Certification classes, you will be able to rent a firearm at the range. For more advanced classes, you should be training with your own carry firearm. Ammo requirements will be included with the information for your class.

The equipment you'll need depends on the class you're taking - for some classes, all equipment including hearing and eye protection is provided. For others, you will need to provide some items like a suitable carry belt and holster. Specific equipment requirements will be included with the information for your class. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! 

If your class includes use of a holster, you will need a rigid holster that can be carried strong side or appendix and a sturdy carry belt. If your regular carry is small-of-the-back or cross-draw, please contact us to discuss options. 

What if I've never shot before or I'm really nervous?

Some classes are specifically designed for new shooters. If you're really nervous about guns, those are a great place to start. For some folks, a private lesson is the best way to overcome a previous bad experience or a lot of fear.

Please contact us to discuss what classes are best for first-time shooters or to book a private lesson where we can make sure you have a chance to learn the way that's best for you.

Is it different learning from a woman instructor?

The fundamental skills for shooting and self defense are the same for both men and women. However, sometimes women feel more comfortable learning from a woman instructor, especially when they're starting out.

For the guys, don't worry, I teach a lot of men. You'll find the courses challenging and you'll get the improved skills and excellent coaching you're looking for.

Is there an age limit?

Some classes are open to older teens if they are accompanied by a parent. Please contact us to discuss the details. 

What if I have a disability?

We believe everyone should be able to protect themselves - if you have a disability or challenge, we're happy to work with you to determine the best options for your particular situation - just ask!
