Womens Pistol 101 Class Saturday July 17th Time 9-12 Noon
July 17, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm$15.00
Ladies – I missed seeing you on the first Monday of the month for our Pine Ridge Shooters Club Women’s (PRSC-W) meeting. Hope you all had a fun and safe Independence Day weekend instead.
The Pistol 101 course is designed to teach you to safely shoot a semi-automatic pistol or revolver with supervision. You will learn the NRA’s five fundamentals of pistol shooting as well as proper grip and stance and leave prepared for the range time in the afternoon. You can bring your own pistol or let me know if you would like to borrow one of mine. NO LIVE AMMUNITION IS ALLOWED IN THE CLASSROOM.
You must have a current Outpost Range membership, so arrive 30-45 minutes early if you haven’t already joined. Remember your eye and ear protection, pistol, ammunition, chamber flag, water (with a screw-top, no straws or sippy cups allowed), ball cap, closed toe shoes, etc.
Our next meeting will be 6pm on Monday, August 2. We will go through malfunctions – what they are, what causes them, and what to do about them. Remember, a malfunction in and of itself is not dangerous. It’s what you do after experiencing a malfunction that could create a dangerous situation. Therefore, if while shooting, you see, hear, or feel anything out of the ordinary and do not know how to address it, do nothing. That means keep your finger off the trigger, keep your firearm pointed downrange, keep looking downrange. Then you can raise your non-dominant hand, and a Range Safety Officer will help you address the issue in a safe manner. At our next PRSC-W meeting, we’ll show you how to address malfunctions on your own.
