What You'll Get
Besides giving women a way to defend themselves, training with guns helps them take revenge on the clay pigeon that swindled them out of their family fortune. Make a few eloquent bullet points with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a women's Basic Handgun Fundamentals class at Gander Mountain Academy in Lake Mary (a $99 value).
Gander Mountain Academy updates its lessons in gun safety, handling, and marksmanship with virtual shooting technology that was once only available to military and law-enforcement agencies. The ladies-only basic fundamentals class gives women a foundation in the mechanics of handguns and how to use them safely. Students start by winnowing down the right type of gun for their needs, be they self-defense, hunting, or reclaiming the garage from infestations of gremlins. Next, instructors with callused trigger fingers explain the safety rules of handguns, compare ammunition options, and demonstrate proper grip, stance, and trigger control.
Put new skills to the test in a two-million-pixel lane at Gander Mountain's V-Range, whose guns are modified to use laser technology, yet pack a realistic recoil. The class also uses the Pro V Sim 180, a multiscreen immersive simulator that trains the mind to navigate the 180-degree chaos of more realistic self-defense scenarios, such as Viking raids and shootouts surrounded by flocks of doves. Participants depart the course with a coursebook full of useful information, a notebook, and a certificate of achievement.
