The ISA’s Ladies Instructional Pistol Shoots (LIPS) 2017 season will start on April 4th. Contact Joyce at 724-863-6940 for more information. All invited, members or not.
We gather the first and third Tuesday of each month from April to August at 6:30 pm. Membership in ISA is not required. This league is open to the public. Having your own handgun is not required to participate. Firearms and ammunition are available to use. There is a $5.00 fee to cover expenses.
The Women's league is designed to take anyone from beginner to whatever skill level they wish to achieve, for both self defense and competitive shooting.
While this not a "formal" class, the instruction and material is based on basic pistol and self-defense courses. Some of the subjects that we cover are:
Choosing the best firearm and caliber for your hand size and purposes
The "mindset" for self-defense
Care and cleaning of your firearm
Different methods of carrying concealed
Self-defense in the home
Point and shoot method
See the below Helpful Information section.
