Revere's Riders: Ladies Only Basic Pistol April 17, 2021 at Atlanta Conservation Club

https://www.reveresriders.org/event/2021-apr-17-atlanta-in/

This will be a special LADIES ONLY event—thanks for joining us!
[h=3][FONT=&quot]Pistol 100 (Basic Pistol) Overview[/FONT][/h]Prerequisites: None
Estimated Ammunition Required: About 200 rounds/day.
Pistol Requirements: You will need a safe pistol with at least five round capacity to fully participate in this course. Pistols should be of a modern, drop safe design.
Older single action pistols manufactured before the 1980s and lacking a transfer bar safety are the most common type of pistol that lack drop safe design features, as do some military surplus imports from Eastern bloc countries and Taurus PT-series pistols not fixed during an international safety recall in 2015. These pistols may discharge if dropped and pose a potential safety hazard to our volunteers and students, and are not permitted. If you have concerns about the safety features of your pistol you should have it inspected by an armorer or gunsmith before class.
Required Equipment: Please review our suggestions for appropriate Pistol 100 equipment and plan to bring the following:

  • at least two magazines for your pistol
  • ammunition 150 rounds
  • a way to take notes
  • hearing protection
  • eye protection
  • plenty of your preferred method of hydration (both plain water and something to replace electrolytes you will lose via sweating is ideal)
  • clothing appropriate for the weather (loose fitting clothing, especially around the neck, is discouraged as hot brass can lodge against the skin and cause a burn)
We will not be drawing from the holster in this class and we will run a “cold range.” You will not need a holster to participate in the class activities.
Optional Equipment: The following equipment is not required but may come in handy at the event:

  • hat with a brim (to deflect flying hot brass)
  • folding chair
  • lunch
  • snacks
  • sunscreen and/or bug spray
  • staple gun
Loaner Firearms: loaner firearms suitable for use at this event are generally available but limited. Please contact the Event Director prior to the event if you would like to request a loaner firearm.
Overview: This course, based on traditional American service pistol fundamentals teaches “Hits Count!” This course lays a sound foundation for students to shoot groups under time pressure from a practical stance. Pistol 100 includes classroom and range time learning to shoot handguns. Students learn:

  • Rules for safe gun handling & range rules
  • Pistol parts and operation & ammunition
  • Shooting fundamentals: Five steps to firing each shot
  • Two Handed Grip & Stance: Isoceles, Weaver, and low ready positions
  • Natural Point of Aim
  • Shot Group Analysis
  • Clearing Common Stoppages
  • Whittemore’s Stand Pistol Qualifier

Bumping this. Plenty of new gun owners out there and hopefully a significant amount are women. Come on out and learn how to use that pistol safely and have some fun.
This is a great intro class and this one is exclusively tailored for the ladies.
We also have loaner pistols available at no charge so don’t let that hold you back.

Still a couple of slots left for this one and a month left before class. Sign up while while you can. The weather should be great, no promises though it is Indiana! Range is only 30 mins from Indy.

Yes sold out. Next ‘ladies only’ pistol is May 15th in Liberty, Indiana hosted by INGO’s A&A Optics.
There will be another basic pistol at Atlanta Conservation Club Sept 11th but it will not be exclusive to the the ladies.
These events do typically sell out and if you sign up early you get the early bird special.
Events are also added periodically to the RR’s website throughout the year and you can also sign up for the newsletter.

Either would be good choices. If coming from Fort Wayne then Kokomo may make more sense, so she has less of a drive and doesn’t have to backtrack.
