But you seem to be implying that an all-women training course leads to a less-than-standard outcome for the trainees.
I didn't mean to imply it. I meant to state it.
If the standards are not different, there is no reason to separate men from women.
Teaching the things this thread has mentioned is time spent that could have been spent teaching Defensive Handgun.
There is more than one prong to that result-- the standards are lower in the Defensive Handgun class, and you have a Defensive Handgun instructor trying to teach something other than Defensive Handgun.
