"Since 2008, there have been more than 100,000 women and a few good men who I personally have taught these courses and no one has failed because it is the instructor's job to teach you what you will need to know to succeed, including the written test and the live-fire shooting qualification element. We care that you do well and can carry a handgun for protection should you ever need to defend yourself or a loved one, especially in places were a handgun carry permit allows you to carry a gun that those without a permit are not permitted to carry. Hope to see you in a class soon!"—Susan Romanov, SFWA Founder
Please do not worry if you will be able to "qualify" at the range, or spend a lot of time shooting hundreds of rounds practicing. As unbelievable as it may seem, SFWA has the ability to help students who have never even fired a handgun shoot well, the first time! We would prefer that you save your ammo, be well rested and simply attend the course and enjoy your time at the shooting range with us.
Safety on the range is essential . . . we keep
the stress level low,
and the success level
high, for our students!
Plus, students may use our firearms for FREE! Actually, we encourage you NOT to purchase a firearm for personal protection, prior to taking the class as you will be better equipped to make a more educated decision.
Don't miss out, "register" soon, classes fill up really fast!
We are the most popular place to take the Handgun Carry Class; thus, those who consider us competition
very often attempt to convince those interested in taking our courses that there are
hidden fees, excessive travel, range issues, or other misleading gimmicks.
It really is only a $28 non-refundable pre-class donation and $12 range fee on the day of the class. It's fun, informative and empowering!
