Do you have any women-only classes, or any coming up closer to the end of the year (september-ish?). The wife is interested, but said she'd be more comfortable in an all-women class.
Yes to the second -- I'll be doing at least two classes a month for the foreseeable future -- and no to the first.
I think there is a place for women-only classes, and I know there are folks who do them.
Largely, the issue is that women may feel more comfortable without men around -- and the usual subtext of that is "women may feel more comfortable without men around treating them condescendingly and/or rudely". Which doesn't happen in my classes, in part because I wouldn't let it. That said, when you add in the fact that women -- particularly the new shooters -- almost invariably shoot better than their husbands and boyfriends, and that I let everybody in on that pretty early.
