Women Shooters


BREAKING NEWS!!!! Women shoot well.

That's no news to me...That is my expectation

After doing this teaching thing for a while now I must say that women shoot very well on average and learn much more quickly than men.   Thank you for this as you make my job easier! 

I have seen really incredible groups shot on targets by women who had never even touched a firearm.  I am having a great time being a minor part in this - Keep it up!

Women Shooters now have more choices and opportunities in the shooting world than ever: Firearms designed specifically for women, forums, gear, training and instructors who respect you and will listen and determine your specific needs.  Instructors that enjoy working with you and know that women are a very important, permanent and vibrant part of the shooting community. 

Mobile Marksman encourages and supports women's rights to responsible self defense, personal security and of course to have fun shooting!

Women are large participants of all Mobile Marksman courses, orientations and seminars - Most often women are 50%+ of our class makeup.  In addition to this, Mobile Marksman will be holding some women-only firearms instruction courses in the future.

Personal Protection, Target Shooting, Collecting and Hunting are all great reasons to get into shooting.  

Check out for NRA Women on Target information and events.

Empowered women, trained, knowledgeable and proficient in the use firearms can make better, more effective and informed decisions about Gun Safety and Children - She can protect them in a number of ways - From others through her own shooting skills, good judgement and confidence and from their own natural curiosity through save storage practices and education: An intelligent, loving and proactive approach...

If and when you think that they are ready, Mobile Marksman specializes in family firearms safety training as well.

Women also don't just shoot "little guns". Mobile Marksman can help you select an appropriate handgun for your personal needs: Women are shooting a wide range of firearms types, with different shapes, sizes and calibers. 

There are also a wide variety of handgun holsters, as well as purse holsters available for your use.

Most popular calibers of female Mobile Marksman students are currently 9mm, .38 Special and .45 ACPSemiautomatics are generally the most popular action type right now but revolvers still have their fans (Russ is one of them).  You can try both types and determine what is best for you.

Above: Dana fires her Ruger 10/22 in the rain at paper plate targets.  She was not deterred by the weather from shooting fun!  Her targets were centrally perforated...

Above: A thorn amongst the roses?  Robert occupying the "Manbench" while Denise shoots.  Much better than listening to the piano player at Nordstom's I'd say.  Shooting is something that couples can do together!    Note: Quite a marksman himself, shortly after this photo was taken Robert hit a stamp-sized target with Russ' .45 - First shot. 

Above: Kacie is having fun at the range shooting her 9mm SIG.  In addition to safety, accuracy and marksman attitude we make sure to have some fun!
