More Information
Teaching Women To Shoot: A Law Enforcement Instructor's Guide is the definitive book on teaching women firearms skills. This is a comprehensive, practical resource book with ready-to-use materials for both the new and experienced firearms instructor.

Vicki Farnam and Diane Nicholl have been teaching men and women how to shoot for over 15 years. They have learned how to change their teaching techniques to meet the needs of both men and women. This book shows what problems women have on the range, explains why the problems occur and provides solutions to these problems. None of this should be taken as a directive to give women "special" treatment. Rather, this book is directed at enhancing an instructor's teaching skills.

Extensive investigation lead the authors to conclude that men and women learn shooting skills in different ways. Basically, women want detailed instruction and adequate time to practice a new skill. Men typically do not need such detailed explanations. This fact helps explain why some of the methods instructors have used successfully with male students do not work as well for female students. Another important consideration is that there are significant differences between male and female brains. Men and women process information differently and have different verbal and spatial skills.

Vicki and Diane share how they teach women the fundamentals of shooting. They also discuss how to fit firearms and holsters. The chapter on remedial training provides step-by-step suggestions. Another important issue covered is motivation. The final chapters focus on the psychology of shooting, including mental focus and how to deal with performance stress.
