My wife went to a class taught by a female instructor and was not for females only. The fact that the instructor was female helped my wife not be overwhelmed by macho BS. It was perfect for her.

NRA sponsors a class, "Women On Target." Many of the NRA ranges put this event on maybe once, twice a year.

Yea, us guys can help when asked but the gals pretty much do it all.

That's a good idea. I taught a women-only Basic Pistol class a few years ago, but we didn't have a female instructor. My wife was an assistant instructor at a TDSA Advanced Pistol I class for women a couple of years ago, but again they didn't have a female lead instructor.

I have to be realistic about my general opposition to male-only/female-only instruction.

This is good. I know someone who teaches a few ladies-only classes, and I am going to suggest that he have at least one female assistant.

Would the women (and women only) care to say how beneficial a female assistant would be when the training class is all-ladies, but run by a man?

Minor help to fantastic help? (Or even no help.)


I may try to learn how to set up a poll, but if anyone wants to beat me to the punch, please feel free. Remember though, that I'm looking at ladies-only classes taught by one or two men.
