This is an 8-hour, all-women’s class and is limited to the first 12 registrations received. Registration is $125 per person, until two weeks prior to the class date. After that time, if seats are available, it will increase to $150 per person. All materials, breaks and lunch are included. We will provide pistols and ammunition for training. You do not have to either own or bring a pistol to class. The program includes range time closely supervised by professionally trained Range Safety Officers (RSOs), which will give you an opportunity to fire a pistol.

My heart became broken and restless when I learned of the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting in July of 2012. I felt responsible; yet, I had never met anyone who was at the theater that night. How could I be responsible for something I didn’t partake in? I wrestled with my emotions for a couple weeks, and finally talked to my pastor to help me sort through the anxiety I was feeling. It was helpful. He then encouraged me to talk to the head of security at my church. He educated me on the responsibility and privilege we have to be responsible gun owners.
Over the next few months, I became a member of the NRA, the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association, enrolled in gun safety/education classes, purchased my first handgun, joined a shooting range, educated myself on holsters, and became intentional on understanding what the Second Amendment is all about.
When we feel confident – we walk with confidence,
we talk with confidence, we act with confidence. It shows.
