Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a list of frequently asked questions. If you have a question not covered here, please feel free to email me by using the "Let's Chat" box or Let's Connect box at the bottom of this page.
1 / Do you teach LTC/CHL Classes?
No, I do not teach LTC classes. I specialize in teaching new shooters or people who are afraid of handguns.
Yes, I offer private classes for people who are not able to attend the listed date. Please see the Private Class option on the Classes dropdown menu for details on the private class price list.
3 / Is there a dress code for class?
The only dress code is the range portion of any classes. This is for your safety and comfort. You will need to wear close toed shoes and a shirt that is not low cut. Expended ammunition casings fly out of the ejection port after each shot, and they are hot. To eliminate any mishandling of a gun while on the range, these precautions need to be taken.
4 / I am ready to attend a LTC class, do you have an instructor you'd recommend?
I recommend Keith Lane of Blue Knight Defense. His website is blueknightdefense.com. His page and events are also searchable on Facebook.
5 / What do I do if I don't know if my gun is loaded or not when I come to class?
Not to worry, after you sign up for class, a follow-up email will be sent to you with specific instructions on how to transport your gun and what to do when you arrive.
Yes, they are welcome to attend class as long as they are mature enough to listen to the instruction being provided and obey the rules for safe gun handling.
Yes, there are two options when signing up for class. The $75 option is to attend this class without a handgun. I will have some to use during class and at the range. Not a problem! I prefer students learn the basics of handgun safety prior to purchasing a handgun.
No, for the safety of the class, I can not let you attend the range only portion of class. If you would like individual training on marksmanship, please see the Private Class options and price listing. I would be happy to work with you during another time.
Although it is ideal to learn the parts and functionality of your own handgun, you are still welcome to attend and learn with one of my guns. The internal part of a pistol and revolver are pretty much all the same with only small variations. You will leave with a better idea of what a dirty gun looks like and how to best maintain them.
10 / Do you teach self defense?
I do not teach physical self-defense. I teach the use of personal protection tools and the use of handguns. For self-defense training, I highly recommend Krav Maga or Brazilian Jui-Jitsu instruction.
11 / I already have my LTC. Where do I go for continued training?
High Caliber Lady offers monthly skill building training called High Caliber Ladies. The session contains various topics and change each month. Each class has a classroom portion followed by live fire at the range. These classes are the perfect follow on after the Introduction to Handguns class.
It is not recommended once you get into the second trimester. It is not healthy for you or your baby to inhale or handle gun powder remnants from the range. If you'd like to learn the basics without going to the range, please email me and we can work out different pricing.
14 / I can't carry a gun to work, what other defense options do I have?
Although I do not teach physical self defense, I think taking self defense classes is a great place to start. You'll gain confidence in your ability to act and fight back. I know not everyone has the time or money to invest into this type of training.
Another option is pepper sprays, stun devices, or kubaton striking tools.
15 / Do you have a refund policy?
I will roll your payment up to two times for the same class to your next available date of your choosing.
16 / Do I need to bring eye and ear protection?
If you own some, absolutely bring them! If you do not, I will have some eye protection you can borrow and hearing protection you can have.
