What an opportunity!
We were approached a few months ago by our local Sportsman’s Warehouse (Baseline & Greenfield) in Mesa to hold a recurring seminar for women. They weren’t set on a topic, so we came up with a class to teach women about firearm safety, primarily, and how to select their first gun.
How’s this for a name?
HerHandgun’s Basic Pistol “Primer” – A Woman’s Introduction to Firearm Safety
& Choosing the Perfect Pistol
Our first FREE seminar is tonight at 6:30 p.m. (I know … forgot to post on our blog … sorry!) and will be offered on a regular basis, bi-monthly, we believe. Will post the seminar dates on our FaceBook page in the future, so be sure to keep visiting us! 🙂

And, I know we probably won’t see you tonight, but maybe at the next class.
