Excel Training Group's Women's Introduction to Handguns

Women's Introduction To Handguns

Friday, January 28th, 2011

This is our basic class for women with limited or no experience with handguns.
In a relaxed and fun environment, we will be taking you from square one and showing you how the guns and ammunition work, the safety procedures needed for safe gun handling and shooting, what the "sight picture" is, how grip, stance, and trigger control form the foundation for accurate shooting, and then have you shooting in the range at paper targets.

TD Roe, female action pistol competitor sponsored by Canyon Creek Custom Guns and Bill Zeller, match director and range officer, are both NRA-certified pistol instructors and will be presenting the course.

  • Start time will be 6:30pm and expect it to run until about 10pm.
  • Please arrive between 6:00 and 6:15 pm for registration.
  • We are limited to ten participants and so we're asking that you let us know as soon as possible if you are able to join us.
  • The class fee will be $100 and is all-inclusive. We will be able to accept cash or check payment, but we do not yet have credit card service.
  • We will provide the guns, ammunition, and everything else you need.
  • If you already have safety glasses and/or hearing protection you prefer to use, feel free to do so.
  • The same also applies to your own gun as well, with the proviso that we may have you start on ours and then transition to yours in order to help make everything consistent.
We are excited to finally get this part of our training program underway. The more advanced courses and events we're planning are coming along soon thereafter. We have some fun and interesting things cooking that will help our shooters learn more while spending some enjoyable time shooting on a very nice range.
If you have any questions, please be sure to call or e-mail either of us.

The location is:
Article II Gun World Range
250 W. Cortland
Lombard, IL

This is an industrial building in an industrial area just east of I-355 and north of North Avenue. The easiest approach is to go east from the I-355 North Avenue exit to the second stoplight, Lombard Avenue. Turn left/north and go one very long block to Cortland, the only crossing street, and then turn right. Article II is on the left, about three buildings east of Lombard Avenue. Park on the west side of the building and come in the front door. The retail store likely will not be open yet, but Article II staff will be on hand to help and direct.
You'll see that this newly-built range will be an excellent facility for all of the things we have planned.
Thanks and hoping to see everyone out there on the 28th.
