The student will be shown and then practice the movement for drawing the firearm from the holster to presentation, including from concealment. This small class has a maximum student-to-instructor ratio of 6:1, making it easier for women to discuss concerns about various topics such as hand strength, style of handgun, safe carry and storage of a pistol.
