Women's personal safety/ new shooter class needed

Anyone have any contacts near Sykesville for instructors? My friend is recently divorced and living in her own. She wants to buy a gun. She really wants a class geared toward women. Obviously she would need a HQL class if she went that route, but I'd like to help her find a "personal protection in the home" style class.

The Damascus Izaak Walton frequently has training classes focused on women. I checked the calendar and nothing for the rest of the year, but maybe something for next year?

Would those be open to the public or just IWLA members?

Open to the public, but they fill up quickly.

I have attended a couple of courses at AGC, including personal protection in the home. One of the instructors was a woman and I took my wife to the course. It was very well done and we both took something away with us. I don't remember what club it was that put it on but maybe you can reach out to the AGC president and find out.
