This class is an introductory lesson taken from USCCA’s Women’s Handgun & Self-Defense Fundamentals course.  In this introduction module, students will be introduced to the basics of handgun safety, including how to safely clear (unload) a semi-automatic pistol.

We will go on to explain and demonstrate the seven basic fundamentals for safe and accurate shooting. The lesson is rounded out by taking those basics, and putting them into practice both in the classroom and on the shooting range. This lesson will act as a building block as the student progresses to Women’s Intermediate Pistol.
