My wife would like to take a basic defensive pistol class in the SF Bay Area. Her goal is to become proficient and comfortable with using her revolver in a home defense role (not CCW or competition). She gets put off with the crotch-grabbing machismo too often displayed in the gun shops I take her to (where is the old SF Gun Exchange when you need it?)—therefore, she would prefer a female instructor, or at least an all-female class.
What do you recommend in the Bay Area? Does anyone have personal experience from any of the following:
No need to recommend Gunsite, Thunder Ranch, or Front Site....all too far away.
