    Women's CCW class?

    Always the same. See it everywhere until you want it. Anyone have leads on women-only CCW classes?

    The only one I know of off hand I refuse to recommend. I have seen far too many problems with the range they are associated with that I will not send anyone their way.

    However, I can say that the majority of classes I have tought, women are usually the majority in the class, not the minority. Many times they shoot better in the class as well, and they seem to pay more attention to the instruction than the men who have been handling firearms all their life and don't think there's anything else for them to learn. (Speaking in general terms only. I'm sure no one here fits into the previous description.)

    Can you mention it so I can avoid reccomending it?

    Your second paragraph is more than anecdotal, it's statistical fact. Given the same amount of practice time, women are better shots than men for the reasons you listed. Better rock climbers for similar cause, too. Women will rely on getting technique down whereas men's solution to everything is a bigger hammer/caliber/grunt.

    Lets just say I dont spend much time at any range within say two miles of Wadsworth and Jewell.

    I value my safety more than their prices. (and I think they have the highest prices around)
