About the presentation:
“Women's Intro. to Handguns” is designed by women for women as a welcoming and engaging learning environment for new shooters, especially those who are brand new to firearms (and maybe have never even picked up or used a gun before). This course is ideal for demystifying firearms and for helping new shooters overcome fear and uncertainty with knowledge and empowerment. All the necessary basics and fundamentals of shooting will be introduced, explained and reinforced, along with the universal safety rules, basic firearms nomenclature, basic firearms functions and reasons to train/carry.


About the speaker:
Author of Women's Handgun & Self-Defense Fundamentals, associate editor of Concealed Carry Magazine and creator of the Pacifiers & Peacemakers blog, Beth Alcazar has enjoyed nearly two decades of teaching and working in the firearms industry. She holds degrees in language arts, education and communication management and uses her experience and enthusiasm to share safe and responsible firearms ownership and usage with others.

Read MoreHide Details

About the presentation:
This hands-on class consists of two distinct 1.5-hour reality-based training sessions that will help students sharpen their gun-handling skills in a variety of simulated, real-world situations. Course sessions will cover firearms handling, proper tactical movement, appropriate decision-making, a shooting simulator and force-on-force training using T4E-converted handguns that employ non-lethal marking rounds. These converted handguns allow scenario participants to safely fight “attackers” in lethal-force scenarios, followed by a debriefing and assessment of the drill. Participants will be able to determine what works and what doesn't when it comes to their equipment, decision-making capabilities and levels of training. The session is considered to be the highest level of evaluation and application of skills available without having to engage in a real fight.

*NOTE: All attendees are required to bring gloves and long sleeves/hooded sweatshirts. No weapons of any kind are allowed in this course. Attendees are subject to a weapons check before class and will have access to storage units if necessary.


About the speaker:
Donna Anthony has more than 20 years of experience in security and law enforcement. She has served as a sworn police officer in Alaska, an undercover investigator for the Alaska State Trooper Statewide Drug Task Force Unit and an Ohio deputy sheriff. She has collaborated with such federal law enforcement agencies as the U.S. Marshals, DEA, ATF and FBI.

After retiring from the Palmer Police Department, Donna founded the Alaska Investigation Agency, LLC in 2012, and is the owner of Point Blank Firearms & Self Defense Training, LLC. Her passion for self-defense drove her to become a member of the National Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association. She is also the national training coordinator for The Well Armed Woman (TWAW), a non-profit organization that educates, equips and empowers women shooters.

Donna has extensive law enforcement training, from hostage negotiation to tactical operations planning, including Rapid Response to an Active Shooter, Undercover Techniques and Anti-Terrorism Training.
