 Private Instruction Lesson, up to two students
There is a reason that any professional athlete has their own personal coach – the learning outcomes are specialized and designed specific to the learner.  Private lessons are very popular as people are more comfortable learning a new skill in a one-on-one safe and comfortable environment.  Please contact me about scheduling your private shooting experience.




 The day long program creates two opportunities.

It is common knowledge in the shooting world that women are naturally better shooters than men. Of course there are no  absolutes, but generally  according to experts in the field of  bio-mechanics  and Nero-science seventy to eighty percent” of women have better eye hand coordination, an affinity for more highly developed fine motor skills, and a lower center of gravity, than men. And most importantly women tend to be "process oriented". meaning the majority of women diliberatly studying how each movment links together, and ultimately learn new skills more thoroughly. ​It is these natural attributes that enable women to master shooting at an accelerated pace.  


In the shooting world when we say “SHOOTS LIKE A GIRL” that is a huge compliment.

Books You just don't understand

Nine to Five    

 Arguable the most scholarly author on gender communication and the unique difference between the men and women’s cultures.

Google her books, they make a great read.

​visual. audiyory kenistetic That women and men generally process information, learn differently,  and communicate  with the same words to accomplish different results, is both natural and a very productive dynamic.

 Instructors  who are  aware of these differences are better able  to create programs for every student that produces greater results, are more enjoyable, empowering, and effective. 

 Information on the summer Girls & Guns program will be posted in mid-April
