Welcome to an empowering journey to unleash your inner heroine

Welcome to an empowering journey of self-discovery and confidence-building with Adventure Protection’s Women-only Basic Protection and Firearm Safety Course. Experience a nurturing, supportive environment where you’ll learn essential skills, deepen your self-awareness, and forge bonds with like-minded women. Here, safety and personal attention take center stage as we guide you through the basics of firearms in a fun, engaging manner. 

Imagine…

Imagine a day filled with newfound friendships, supportive guidance, and new experiences in a safe, comfortable learning environment. Start your day with a warm cup of amazing brewed coffee and pastries as you mingle with your soon-to-be best friends.  The course progresses at a comfortable pace, with plenty of opportunities to ask your questions without being made to feel silly or stupid.

Everything is provided for you, including drinks, snacks, handouts, materials, learning aids, firearms, and ammunition!

You’ll walk away feeling comfortable and confident with each new skill you acquire.

You’ll begin to Be Your Own Damn Hero.

Unleash Your Inner Heroine!

When you complete this course, you’ll enjoy:

  • Increased self-confidence and self-awareness
  • Greater ability to ensure your loved ones are safe
  • Confidence in choosing pistols that fit you perfectly
  • Increased appreciation for a competitive sport

Most importantly, you’ll develop competence which leads to increased confidence that you can defend yourself and your loved-ones.

Our courses are small, so we can focus on your safety, provide personal attention, and help you learn to shoot in a safe, fun environment.

What You’ll Learn

Unleash your inner heroine as we delve into firearm safety and handling essentials, ammunition types, and effective shooting techniques. From mastering the mechanics of semi-automatic pistols and revolvers to understanding how to select the perfect firearm for you, our course has been meticulously designed to empower you with knowledge and confidence. You’ll gain invaluable insights into situational awareness and conflict avoidance as we focus on the fundamentals of personal protection.

Course Specifics

Your journey begins promptly at 8:00 am and concludes around 5:30 pm. We invite you to arrive a bit earlier, at 7:45 am, to check in and kickstart your day with some amazing brewed coffee (none of that Starbucks swill!), tea, hot chocolate, and pastries. While everyone is arriving, you’ll have a great opportunity to chat with your soon-to-be best friends.

Our day starts in a cozy, well-lit classroom fitted with all necessary amenities, offering a comfortable space for the initial instruction.

After lunch, we’ll transition to our nearby private outdoor pistol shooting range. Here, you’ll start with .22 caliber pistols, perfectly suited for beginners, easy to handle, and an excellent confidence booster. As you feel ready, you can graduate to larger defensive calibers such as .38, 380, 9mm, and .45 caliber pistols.

We won’t ever give you something you’re unprepared to handle. We’ll prepare you with the fundamentals so you can feel comfortable shooting larger and larger calibers at your own pace.

Don’t worry about the weather – we’ve got you covered. For the hot summer months, we have A/C in the classroom. We have heaters in the classroom and out on the range for the cooler months. Rain? Not a problem. We’ll be under cover!

We keep you well-fueled throughout the day with coffee, water, and snacks. A highlight of our day is the hot, home-cooked lunch we serve — a feast not to be missed! We provide all the necessary equipment, including handguns, ammunition, and safety gear like hearing and eye protection. However, if you prefer using your own handgun and ammunition, or have personal safety gear, feel free to bring them along. Remember, there’s absolutely no pressure to purchase a handgun for this course.

At the end of this journey, you’ll receive a certificate of course completion, a memento of your bravery in trying new and sometimes scary new experiences, and your resilience in seeing it through to the end! We hope this is the first of many certificates you earn as a validation  of your newfound competence.
