Fortress’ staff understands the apprehensions women students may have with regard to firearms. All of our staff have been trained in the Effective Instruction of Female Students by Vicki Farnam, and are ready to address all questions and concerns in a calm, professional manner.
We provide a comfortable, low-pressure learning environment which progresses to the next step only when you are ready. Our Women’s Defensive Pistol course is designed to take the beginner – who has never fired a shot before – to the level of skilled markswoman, capable of defending herself with a firearm in a defensive situation.
We attempt to provide a staff member for every 2-3 students to provide the most personal instruction experience possible. If requested, a female instructor will be available to assist female students.
