    Came to find an instructor for my wife. She just got the LCP and is looking for a hand gun class. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Took the NRA Basic Pistol class from Cascade Firearms in Boring, OR a month ago with the wife. Great class and great instructors, though maybe a bit far for you. A bit more expensive than some; however, the class was 9-10 hours long and included a significant amount of range time, which is what we were looking for. Overall, an excellent value.

    Albany Rifle and Pistol (ARPC) does a handgun basics 101 for women and a ladies night monthly or so.
    You might check with Four Corners Rod and Gun and see if they have anything going on also.

    I believe Oregon Firearms Academy is a sponsor of this site and for the last 16 years has been providing defensive small arms training to both men and women with 25+ various courses to choose from on their own privately owned dedicated training facility.

    Just had a fella travel 3000 miles to train with us this weekend! OFA is an international school with students from the military, law enforcement and private citizens attending annually.

    Your wife is welcome to call our Office Manager, Vivian, who is in the office M-F 9-4 to visit with another woman about training and the Academy. 541-451-5532 or vivian@oregonfirearmsacademy.com

    Might visit the web site to learn more and to sign one or both of you up!!

    Here's a comment from someone from our Facebook page about our upcoming Women's Only Defensive Handgun 1:

    "Having had the opportunity to attend about 16 OFA classes, I can tell you that the staff is ultra-professional, very patient, and not at all intimidating to students. Women should not hesitate a moment to take the class. No questions is a bad question to the instructors and they will take as much time as you need to help you build confidence at your own pace. Very highly recommended."

    i would not recommend four corners. Albany rifle and pistol club is best for women. Also try Jim jacobe in Salem. He is very well known and does tons of classes.

    Jim Jacobe's classes are excellent. I've taken both the Oregon and Utah CHL classes with him plus his personal security (intro to pistol shooting) class twice (once solo, once with my wife) Highly recommended
