Check out our upcoming classes and events below.

Basic Pistol Course
Dec 2 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Basic Pistol Course @ Dallas | Texas | United States

Our Basic Pistol course is designed to provide a hands-on introduction to the safe handling and proper orientation to pistols. This course is at least three hours long and includes classroom and range time learning to shoot pistols. Students will learn the NRA’s rules for safe gun handling; the particular pistol model parts and operation; ammunition; shooting fundamentals; cleaning the pistol; and continued opportunities for skill development.

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.

The Well Armed Woman – Elm Fork Dallas TX Chapter
Dec 10 @ 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!
