The Well Armed Woman – Elm Fork Dallas TX Chapter
Nov 12 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Welcome to Elm Fork Dallas TX Chapter of The Well Armed Woman! We are a growing community of ladies gathering to share our love of firearms, shooting, self defense and related subjects at a 467 acre world-class shooting sports and training facility conveniently located in the heart of the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex.

We meet on the 2nd Sunday of each month. Our focus is always on improving knowledge, safe gun handling and good marksmanship skills in a safe, female-friendly environment. We also explore things like productive dry practice and live fire practice drills and techniques, gear made for women, carry methods and a whole host of related topics.

We regularly learn from industry experts, seasoned instructors, TWAW Chapter leaders and from each other. Whether you are an experienced shooter or new to shooting, we encourage you to join us. As the experienced shooters will attest, shooting is fun and extremely empowering.

If you do not have a pistol, no problem! Elm Fork’s Rifle/Pistol Pro Shop has you covered at a significantly reduced rental rate when we meet.

Come prepared to learn, share and have a great time!

Defensive Pistol 1
Dec 9 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Defensive Pistol 1 introduces you to the concepts and skills involved in the defensive use of a pistol, creating a solid foundation to build on as you progress through the Series. This is an excellent class if you have a License to Carry and should be a self-imposed requirement if you do. I personally guarantee that this class will exceed your expectations.

The Defensive Pistol Series is taught in Pistol Bay 3 by Elm Fork’s Chief Instructor, Dave Crites.  Dave personally developed this Series of three 6-hour classes after more than 30 years of shooting experience and formal training with an emphasis on the defensive use of a handgun by the armed citizen in an urban environment. This series was developed specifically for the License to Carry (LTC) holder.  Each class focuses on practical shooting, gun-handling and tactics that every armed citizen should possess.
