Drawing from a Holster: Step by Step Method and Drills

This unique event will teach ladies to actually draw and dry fire from an outside the waistband (concealable) holster. We will provide various holsters to use, give step-by-step method for draw, aim, fire, assess and re-holster using standard practice drills.  This workshop is designed for all skill levels.  Ladies interested in carrying concealed will benefit greatly from the observation and discussion, and those currently carrying concealed will benefit from the personalized professional instruction.  

Slots for the hands-on instruction will fill quickly.  If you would like to ensure a spot in the hands-on portion of the class please email [email protected] with the desired date and “GAOS HOLSTER” in the subject line.  Otherwise, please plan on attending during any of the scheduled times!
