Sessions For Ladies….Led By Ladies!!



Classes are held at the Indoor Range of the Minot Rifle and Pistol Club, located just outside Minot, North Dakota. The fee for each class is $100, and includes: instruction, range time, firearms (if needed), eye and ear protection (if needed), targets, and lunch.

We do not teach handgun tactics, defensive pistol or state concealed carry requirements. We will teach you how to become a successful shot; from the basics of proper stance and grip, sight alignment and trigger press to reloading, transitional target acquisition, and safely moving with your firearm.

Our Basic Pistol Class is for any lady (sixteen years or old with parent) who is brand new to shooting. This class may also appeal to ladies that want to brush up on their basic pistol skills. No previous pistol or shooting experience is required. And, you do not need to own a firearm!
