Handgun Training Classes

Handgun Training


That’s not a bad thing. It’s a fact that we learn new things better when broken down in a step-by-step manner. We just need to know the ‘why’ behind it. The ‘just do it this way’ and ‘because I said so’ type of handgun training methodologies are contrary to our style of learning. For some women, learning a technical and potentially dangerous skill like gun handling from a man is a tense and uncomfortable experience. That is why many women prefer to receive pistol training from other women, we get it!



Hi, I am Kandy Harrell, CEO and Instructor. I am a NRA Certified Pistol Instructor, NRA Certified Range Safety Officer, Chapter Co-Leader of the Summerville-Charleston The Well Armed Woman (TWAW) Chapter and member of the International Defensive Pistol Assoc. (IDPA).

I have taught women shooters of all skill levels for several years. From experience I know that women learn differently than men. I’ve learned that one style of handgun training does not work for all students. I am adept at teaching women to safely shoot at their skill level with the equipment available to them.

Because I’ve been there, done that, I understand the emotions around shooting for the first time. It’s OK to be exhilarated, or petrified, taking your first shot. I know how to provide you the confidence and safe environment you need to safely handle a gun, shoot it safely and accurately.

So, if you are female and feel more comfortable starting your pistol training with someone that can relate to your apprehensions first hand, let’s get together. I promise you that your experience WILL be different. ‘I am not a teacher, but an awakener.’ [Robert Frost]. My #1 goal is to awaken the hidden warrior within you and be the ‘tour guide’ on your journey to becoming independent and confident in your ability to defend yourself and your loved ones.

I believe in YOU and I want you to leave my class knowing in your heart-of-hearts that YOU ARE WORTHY OF DEFENDING!

NOTE: We do not advocate avoiding quality instruction from any male instructor. For example, we highly recommend the extremely knowledgeable, competent and professional team of men and women at Shoot Logic in Reevesville. In fact, I owe much of my current knowledge and skills to the mentorship and training I received from Tommy Judy and his amazing staff. I wouldn’t be here today doing this without all that I learned at Shoot Logic.
