Conceal with Confidence

Conceal with Confidence

Conceal and Carry with Confidence from the Beginning (Ladies Only)

Seating is limited & available on 1st come, 1st serve basis for safety of all students.

This is a five hour class designed to develop safe & well rounded shooters.

You may have received your Texas License to Carry but “HOW do I carry”?

Concealed carry is an Intermediate class for Self Defense that has you drawing from concealment, shooting and problem solving.

Included will be:
• Review of safety and fundamentals.
• Proper range etiquette (what to expect) for a live fire class, this being the 1st for many aside from your LTC (License to Carry).
• Essentials of great & not so great concealment options based on your personal body type.
• How to safely draw and return to concealment, before adding in live fire.
• Then we take it to the range to practice and implement skills learned in a slow and controlled environment. Speed comes later.
• There will be an emphasis on scenarios that simulate having loved ones involved in a threat encounter and how to keep them safe.

EXPERIENCE LEVEL:
• Safe handgun skills is the #1 PRIORITY.
• License to carry is helpful.
• Basic handgun knowledge. Load, unload, show clear, etc. This is NOT a “1st shots” class. It is a “1st shots from holster class”.

EQUIPMENT NEEDED:
• Working handgun (preferably a centerfire gun)
• 150 rounds of “target” ammunition.
• Eye & ear protection.
• OWB/IWB Holster (Outside the waistband, inside the waistband) or concealment option. IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANYTHING YET, IT’S OKAY! We have holsters for you to try out. This is also a great class if you’re wanting to try different concealment holster options before you buy.

Practice Day

Practice Day

Ready for a confidence boosting day of fresh air, fun, and training with like-minded ladies?

This “class” is a small setting practice day that focuses on scenario-based training.

We will run through “What would you do if…?” scenarios for a Walmart parking lot altercation, ATM theft, Carjacking, etc. Part of being prepared to respond is going through the unthinkable before it happens so you don’t panic if it does.

I want you ladies confident and empowered to know you can have the skills to protect yourself if you put the time in to practice!

The class is outdoors to accommodate social distancing with instruction and coaching to help you improve your skill set.

PREREQUISITES: Beginner Handgun (or lesson) & Conceal with Confidence and/or attended previous Practice Day.
