Fort Worth Ladies' Shooting program?

Postby TexasGal » Tue Sep 15, 2009 6:07 am

Hi all,
Is there a ladies' only group shooting in Forth Worth or nearby like they have at the Dallas Pistol Club where newbies can learn in a girl's only setting without paying large sums of cash? DPA is in Carrollton...not a favorite drive from south of Forth Worth.
Just wondering

Wow, thanks!
I am going to do some more checking, but if I don't find one, I will take you up on that offer. I would think there are lots of women in the Fort Worth/Arlington area who would like to be able to do this to learn in an economical (not counting ammo) ladies-oriented group.

Keep me informed. While you are looking around keep an eye out for possible instructors. I think it is best if you have women instructors. We understand our issues and way of learning better than most guys and we can have more fun with less embarrassment. A good place to start is looking for women NRA pistol instructors. (The NRA class is great and you will want to use it a springboard for a 3 hour +/- shooting class with minimal classroom time.) The NRA instructor may be interested in running a monthly class for women.

I am not aware of any ladies shooters groups in Fort Worth and I have lived here since 2000. However, the program at DPC in Carrollton is fantastic and I know the instructors. Emily, Rhonda, Carina, and Laura are great. It would be worth the trip.

Good luck! :tiphat:

I know it is only a matter of time before I get pulled into this, so I'm just gonna go ahead and jump in. While I love you all and would love to do this, I don't have the time to add anything else right now. I do actually work at a fulltime job in addition to teaching CHL and NRA classes, and my Basic Pistol classes are completely booked until December.

Now, if anyone wants to donate to the "Crossfire Range Fund" so we can build a range and I can retire from my other job, then we can talk! ;-)

But, in the meantime, try contacting the Cowtown Divas. They always have something going on, and while you might not be interested in EVERYTHING they do, they have done basic pistol programs too. Contact Rhonda Berg here: http://txdiva.com/pages/Contact.html The fall shooting clinic is right around the corner. They will be doing it al Elm Fork. Sorry, I know it is still Dallas, but maybe if you join, you can talk them into doing it at Alpine next time.

BTW, not kidding about the range. We are seriously looking for land in the Alliance area to build a range and class program on. If anyone knows about a possible (and affordable) 20 acres or so, let us know!!

Thanks for the info. I saw the website information and was thinking I would round up my friend to go to the next meeting. After all, driving that far isn't all that bad if it is worth it :thumbs2:

Thanks for the info on the Divas. I will look into that. I hope you find the right place for a range--that would be great!

If you ladies don't mind driving to Corsicana,we might can arrange for some remedial,or basic training.I am a Tx.CHL Instuctor,NRA certified pistol instuctor and have been training ladies since late 60s, at Lackland AFB.Classes would have to be limited to no more than four ladies, and week days only.I have access to two ranges.

Hi Rusty
Hey my friend lives down there at Corsicana. What would you charge for just the she and I to get some newbie training from you? You can PM me on it if you'd rather.
