AWSA Classes: For women who are serious about shooting
Women training women is very important to us. Men and women are different. Our center of gravity is different, our balance is different.

Most men are not aware of these differences when they try to teach women how to shoot.

For instance, when shooting a handgun, recoil control is a concern for many women. With a few simple tricks, a small women can learn to handle a large caliber gun with little problem.

The AWSA offers handgun, rifle and shotgun training, as well as strive to provide a variety of shooting experiences so our members can hone their skills.

We also offer a variety of classes to enhance our member's understanding and enjoyment of firearms and related subjects.

Hi Carol,

Never to late to say" Thank You" for your time, dedication, kindness and patience...

Twelve days ago I enjoyed to participate to your class well except for the shooting I was terrible. I will give an other try but not tonight.

I thought that I could come to do some practice but I have to prepare a job interview...

You and your team are doing a great job for the women. Keep going!

Have a wonderful evening,

Thank You All,
Best regards,
Joelle Lagarde

I would just like to take this time to thank you for the time and effort that you put into the Ladies Personal ProtectionClass. It must be so hard to know that there is so much to teach each student, if we would put a value on our lives first. I do value take to heart the things that you have been teaching me and you are so willing to keep on teaching me.

You are instilling a confidence in me that I never knew I had. And you are making me look deep into myself and awaken the yearning of knowledge in this sport. You will never know how much I have learned in the different classes/ Wed evening shoots. I hope that you know that you have made a big difference in the way I have been able to look & act in different situations and know that if something happens I will be able to put up the fight of my life and or fight the for the safety of my small little family.

I look forward to the continued Firearm and Personal Safety education that you offer to me.

Thank you, Patsy
