U.S.A. -( Gunsite Academy, a long time supporter of TWAW Shooting Chapters, Inc. and host range for the Gunsite Chapter, Arizona’s largest chapter, announces a new opportunity for TWAW Shooting Chapter leaders to continue their instructor development and gain additional skills to share with their chapter members.

A three (3) day Women’s Instructor Development Class, brand new for 2022, is being offered to TWAW Shooting Chapter members who have successfully completed a Gunsite 250 Pistol Class.  This course is not designed to teach one how to shoot.  Rather, it is to better prepare one to teach others how to shoot. It is being offered twice in 2022 and is scheduled for Saturday through Monday. Each course is also scheduled following a 250 course for that first needing to complete the prerequisite. Some sessions have also been scheduled concurrently with pistol range days to provide an incentive for traveling companions who aren’t taking the instructor course.

The course will cover presentations and lectures, both on and off the range, adult learning concepts, peer and instructor critiques, developing presentations, safely managing a range, supervising and directing assistant instructors, and presenting the various weapons systems and liabilities and a night shoot. This will benefit the new as well as the experienced firearms instructor. Learn from Gunsite Rangemasters who are also university professors and Subject Matter Experts for various state boards. The course is a condensed version of the five-day instructor development course which is held annually in October.

“We are proud of our long relationship with TWAW Shooting Chapters and hope this training opportunity will allow their trainers to better serve their membership.  We have strived to keep the cost as low as we can.  This will train-the-trainer how to teach The Modern Technique as they learned in their Gunsite 250 Pistol Class.  Having TWAW Shooting Chapter members and leaders at Gunsite is always a pleasure,” says Gunsite CEO Sheriff Ken Campbell (Ret.).

Offering programs for women is one of the most effective and most ignored means to expand our sport and protect our rights. Women are the key decision makers in most homes. If they are anti gun you produce anti gun kids. The inverse is true. Women who understand and respect the shooting sports and the right to self defense will repay the movement tenfold. If your gun club does not have aggressive women’s shooting programs you are part of the problem and not part of the solution. Gunsight is the original and I am glad to see they are pushing… Read more »
