Women Only Pistol Fundamentals clinic, 17 Oct 2020

When I was growing up in the 1960s and ’70s, women were mostly part of the scenery in movies and TV shows.  During a violent confrontation, her job was to stand behind the hero and scream.  Men were expected to know how to handle guns.  A lady who could was considered a Tomboy at best.  Teaching women to be self sufficient wasn’t officially discouraged, but it was far from encouraged.


We still have not achieved 100% parity between the sexes, but the modern “Bond woman” is just as lethal as 007.  Skill at arms enhances, rather than detracting from, her perceived femininity in popular culture.  Heloderm and Warlizard Tactical are proud to be empowering women to master defensive tools and strategies.

Yet, the firearms instruction profession (drawn, as it always has been, primarily from the military and law enforcement) remains male-dominated, and classes tend to ooze testosterone.  We are in the process of helping our RSOs (of both genders) mature into instructors.

In the meantime, if you’d like to learn and practice in the company of other women, you can sign up for Warlizard Tactical’s Women Only Pistol Fundamentals clinic on Saturday, 17 Oct 2020.  The class will run from 8:00 am till about 2:00 pm.

Heloderm LLC will be teaching two FREE Violence Avoidance and Survival seminars that weekend as well.  VAS focuses on empty hands responses to Home Invasions, Active Shooters, and other violent crimes.  If you’d like to take both courses, you can attend the Women Only Pistol clinic on Saturday 17 Oct and VAS on Sunday 18 Oct 2020.
