Student Testimonies

 

 

 

 

 

  • "I don't know if you could have had anyone more scared of guns than me. I was not only afraid of touching it, but I had a terrible family experience with a gun. Slowly, with knowledge and a safe Instructor, I was able to overcome my fears and learn about guns and start getting experience shooting. Knowledge and experience have taken the place of my fear. Don't get me wrong, my Instructor has taught me to have a great respect for guns and what they can do. I am very early in my training but I'm glad I'm moving forward."
  • "Amber did a great job of presenting the information, was patient and knowledgeable, had interesting examples for reasons why or why not to do something. I would highly recommend her class to others."
  • "I liked that real life examples were used. I also enjoyed the Instructor's enthusiasm (and humor); it made for a more interesting day". "
  • "Amber was such a great instructor! I was so nervous but she was so patient and thorough! I really learned a lot!"
  • "I LOVED training with Amber she is very knowledgeable and patient as I had never used a firearm before. I feel very empowered now that I am able to protect my family !"

My personal goal is to help people (men and women) enjoy the shooting sports by teaching them good fundamental skills they can build on as they practice and perfect their abilities. Once the basics are mastered taking my advanced classes are the next natural step.

I understand everyone has different preferences and skill-sets and can work with individuals' varying abilities.

I keep class material pertinent so students can practice skills outside of class. I empower students to achieve greater goals, thereby, adding more skills to their skill-set. I like to keep the 'fun' in 'fundamentals' so students leave class feeling empowered, positive about their shooting experiences, and wanting to keep learning and developing more skills and abilities.

Personal motto: never stop learning; never stop doing.

 I'm a Certified NRA Pistol Instructor with a goal of educating and empowering as many women as possible in not just owning a gun but feeling the success of entering competitive shooting sports and/or being able to defend themselves or their families if necessary.


My introduction to guns and safe handling began at the age of 7-years-old under the supervision of my father and older brother. Both of whom made sure I learned how to not only shoot but respect and maintain the responsibility that comes with gun ownership. This is a value and education I'd like to pass on to generations of women shooters, both young and old alike, for years to come.

I believe that all gun owners need to be RESPONSIBLE gun owners, so I focus on safety and responsibility, but I also believe the it can be FUN!

Student Testimonies

I have had my pistol permit for over a year now and haven't been properly introduced to a gun range environment. Carolann showed me exactly what to do at the range and how to properly use my gun. After an hour with her i feel much more confident than I did beforehand. I highly recommend any girl getting their pistol permit, and to meet with Carolann to show you the ropes, you won't be sorry!!!
NYGirl New Shooter

Just took the safety course from Carolann on Saturday with my Husband and Son. The course I intiially took didn't even resemble the training that Carolann provided. She does not simply have you sit through a presentation. She involves you in active discussion, answers questions in great detail, and demonstrates every point in a tactile hands on manner. Carolann goes above and beyond what is needed to "just get your paperwork through" and if you plan on carrying a gun, then you should plan on allot of TRAINING - Carolann's safety class is a TRAINING and I cannot recommend her enough! ~Donna~

I would just like women to know they are not helpless, they can learn to stand up and defend themselves & their families with a little common sense. Keep your head on a swivel, Be aware your surroundings at all times and trust your internal "gut" feelings. If something does not feel right, it probably isn't. Remove yourself from the dangerous situation at all cost or be ready to fight for your life or your loved ones life.

Connie Amelang owner, is dedicated to teaching women the safe and effective use of firearms in The Inland Empire and High Desert areas of So. California.

In 2013 I discovered a wonderful organization called "The Well Armed Woman". Their main focus is to Educate-Equip-Empower women in the safe use of firearms. The founder, Carrie Lightfoot saw a need and filled it. I have been a shooter for many years but had never found an organization by women for women until I discovered TWAW.

There is a movement going on right now as women are joining the ranks of gun ownership in large numbers, the likes of which we have never seen! Sisters Of Caliber was created to help train this growing number of women shooters.

Shooting has been a passion of mine for many years so it is fitting that I would want to assist other like-minded women. This is the reason that Sisters Of Caliber was created. It is a resource that women can count on whether it be shopping for their first gun, receiving training, or looking for equipment tailored to women. Sisters of Caliber is here as a resource to help this growing number of women to keep themselves and their loved ones safe!

I am so extremely thankful that this class is out their for women like me. I was always afraid of firearms but, after taking this class that is no longer the case. I feel very empowered and now know I can protect myself or my family if need be. I had the best time and learned so much from this class I ever thought was possible. I have already told a few women about it who are now interested in taking a class for themselves. I love all these ladies and can't wait to see them all again out on the range - Donna Guzzo

I learned more in this class than I thought I could. I feel more than confident now that I can protect myself at all times. I also got a whole group of new sisters in the process - Kim West Hudson

Fun Fellowship and Firearms is exactly what it says it is. You get some Fun, you get some Fellowship, and you get a whole lot of Firearms! This organization is the perfect fit for any woman who is looking for any and all of the three things mentioned above! - Amanda Rodewig

I loved it because it teaches you the correct way to hold a firearm for accuracy and the class gave me the confidence to feel comfortable shooting the firearm. I also loved the fact that the instructor pulled out of God's word that he is always right there beside us, no matter the storm we are facing. We are empowered women!- Dawn Lucas

My goal is to help others minimize their risk of becoming a victim and protect themselves and their loved ones. I had a gun when a man broke through my front door. Fortunately I didn’t have to use it. The gun itself was enough to make him leave. What if I hadn’t had the gun?
I educate people on safety first, basic handling of a firearm, personal protection in and outside the home, how can you minimize your risk of becoming a victim. And concealed firearm carry.
I am a certified instructor by the NRA and the Well Armed Woman..I am also certified by the state of Utah and Illinois as a CCW Permit Instructor.

Hi Dee - Thank you so much for introducing my wife to the way of the pistol! She loved it and said you are awesome. She is ready to hit the range and is almost eager. Nice work!! She mentioned a 9mm Springfield? That's what we have at home. We also have a Ruger LCP .380. I believe our next purchase will be a Sig Sauer Mosquito. I think she really liked that one plus the economical aspect would be nice. We are interested in future sessions so we'll reach out and let you know when we're ready to take it up a step. Hopefully, we can find some good weather.

Best,
Chip

I love helping people, and particularly enjoy working with women. I want all women, as well as men, to be able to defend themselves and experience the confidence and peace that goes along with that. I am a perpetual student as well, and never stop learning, training or practicing. I will always have new information to share, but my focus is on safety with the gun as a tool and on using it defensively, skillfully, only when absolutely necessary. If you desire, I can meet you as a novice, and work with you until I can certify you as a USCCA Certified Instructor or a Range Safety Officer. How far do you want YOUR skills to grow? It's all up to you!

Teacher SR - I think that you being so alert and careful made me feel more at ease, for that was my first time holding a real gun. I think you are an excellent gun safety instructor!

AH- I felt very welcomed and appreciate the time and care you take with each member.

JB- I can't thank you enough for welcoming me into your chapter and I still feel a part of it -- looking much forward to my return next November. I gained so much from being a part of the group beyond even the practice and classes. I feel I have found new friends that I am very glad to have met. You are an excellent teacher and guide. Thank you for not treating me any differently as an "outsider" and for including me in every way possible. I admire your skills, your ability to pass them on, and most of all your warmth and acceptance of each woman who is part of your group.

Student Testimonials

Hey Jamie,

Class was amazing!! I learned a lot of useful information. I left class looking at life differently. I had never shot a gun until yesterday, and I fell in love. I think it's going to become my new passion. There is just something about it, that feels so right with me.
You and Darral are great teachers, very good at explaining information. Your examples helped me to realize to watch my surroundings better.
Tim and I are gonna have to come out and shoot again. It was so much fun.

Yvette

We really enjoyed the class on Saturday, we both learned a lot!

Carrie and Brandan

Thanks again for your personal touch on teaching safety and regulations involving firearms, Jamie. I didn't realize all the responsiblities I was taking on when carrying a firearm until your class.

Dr. John

Firearm Coaching supports gun owners to progress in the direction they desire, through instruction and support in an open, honest, and safe environment.

The founder Jane knows what it is like to be afraid of a firearm. She knows what it is like to have to learn the new language and the terms used when talking about firearm. She also knows how empowering it is to face your fears and to overcome the obstacles in your way. As Jane overcame her fears she started helping family and friends to become familiar with gun and get pass their fears too. Her knowledge, compassion, and patience, has helped others feel comfortable as they learn about firearms. Jane realized that she was not alone and that there were others out there that just needed to be shown how to get started. Her passion for helping others is why she is so successful helping others forge through the unfamiliar path of gun ownership.

Firearm Coaching holds formal TWAW, NRA, Utah CFP, and USCCA classes. We can customize classes to fit your needs. Firearm Coaching is here to help you progress at your pace in a safe and comfortable learning environment.

I am passionate about keeping you safe! Learn how to safely store your firearm whether it's for sport or self defense. I want to help you become confident with your firearm but have a healthy respect so you don't ever become careless. Learning and practicing gun safety will insure peace of mind for you and your family while furthering your training. For over 20 years I have been a black belt in karate. I feel if you want to carry or have your carry license, you should train and be efficient. Your firearm should be an extension of your body. We say in karate...If you do not win a fight in the first 30 seconds or less, don't expect to win at all. This is why we train for self defense. If you have a firearm in your home, I want you to know gun safety and feel more comfortable with your firearm.

My goal is the same as the Well Armed Woman motto...to educate, equip, and empower women to take responsibility for their safety. I provide much more than firearms training. My intent is to instill confidence and to promote a feeling of competence, so that if a woman ever needs to use her firearm in a self defense situation she will feel that she can depend on herself to succeed. The bonus? Women connecting with each other, making friends, having a blast!

I would like to take a moment to introduce myself and give you a short background. Many years ago, I was abducted by a man who was hiding in the backseat of my car when I got in it. I was forced to drive for miles, terrified of what the man’s intentions may have been. Fortunately for me, I was able to escape my moving vehicle and get away. This man turned out to be a violent serial rapist and the experience haunted me for many years.

I began the Total Confidence program in 2006 and have taught in several states for the past ten years. This is my passion as I continue to share my knowledge and expertise in Total Confidence instructing and training in reality mixed martial arts, self-defense, gun-defense, and pistol handling skills.

My goal for you is to feel completely comfortable and confident while learning the safe gun handling skills needed to defend you and your family.

I was personally never raised with guns, and one day decided that I didn't want to be in a situation where I needed a gun, but either didn't have one, or was too afraid to use one to protect my self or my loved ones from harm. My goal is to help those folks that have the proper attitude about gun use and safety, to get started and headed in the right direction to continue their journey to gun ownership, self protection, and/or promotion of the shooting sports.

I want to train women to not be afraid of firearms. Whether they choose to carry a gun or to not carry, no woman should fear a gun and should know how to "approach" a firearm. From that introduction to firearms, a woman can then choose to continue her education into shooting where training can continue.

Mountain Girl Outdoors specializes in outdoor opportunities designed for women.

We strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental, non-intimidating environment where women can come together in an encouraging female-friendly environment while they learn and discover new outdoor lifestyle skills or participate in those they already enjoy.

As a female, it can be overwhelming or scary to participate in or take on a new activity that is known as male dominated. Let’s face it, male and females typically have different learning styles and/or environments. Our goal is to provide female, adult-learning centered classes and activities that build skills, confidence and empowerment. We believe this will help women become more comfortable in the outdoors, encouraging them to become engaged and involved with their families in new or current outdoor activities. Ultimately bringing families together, building stronger bonds, keeping them together and increasing the number of people involved in the outdoors. All while fellowshipping, making new friends and having fun with other women.

So, if you have ever wanted to learn more about an outdoor activity or skill, join the guys, your family, or friends in the outdoors and just didn’t know how to get started, give us a try.

All ages welcome. If you are planning a party, big or small, or a get together for the girls, we can tailor an outing or class to meet your needs.

Student Testimonials

"Ever since I took my CCW class, which was really my first time shooting a handgun much and only months after touching a gun for the first time – it has really changed me and what I think I can do. Like my big girl panties grew up. hahaa. Three years ago I would have laughed and wouldn’t have believed it that I would be looking forward to a Well Armed Woman group starting in Lincoln and then it did and I joined, that I would walk around with a gun on my hip (loaded – gasp), wanting to shoot competition, that I would drive a fire truck in a grass fire, going on rescue calls, etc. It is amazing what the empowerment of holding and shooting a gun, and learning about them, what it can do in your life! Carrie W.

Julie, just a quick note to say thanks for a very nicely done and informative class yesterday. I am completely overwhelmed at ALL the voluminous amounts of material but I LOVE it and I find this whole gamut very stimulating. Somewhat intimidating...... but very stimulating.

Testimonials:

Kim is a GREAT instructor, who is patient and understanding. She makes sure you are comfortable and knowledgeable about what you are doing. ~ Nancy

The condominium area I live in started to have several muggings this year. I am 74 years old and figured I was a prime target who needed to do something for protection. I purchased a gun and was lucky enough to have Kim as my instructor. Besides being incredibly efficient, she was extremely patient with me; I was nervous and had never handled a gun before. It has been a positive experience having her as my instructor. ~ Lucy

Kim exhibited great patience, calmness, and knowledge as she led me step-by-step, first through safety procedures followed by how to properly hold and discharge my firearm. I cannot imagine anyone being a better instructor; Kim comes highly recommended. ~ Jim Thanks so much for getting my ladies into the class. They both really enjoyed it and learned a lot. ~ Mike

Firearms are an integral part of life and a necessary tool for survival. Historically, every individual was taught about firearms and learned to shoot proficiently at a very young age. It is time to bring back the skills and common-sense thinking about firearms. It is time to become educated and take responsibility for ourselves.

The shooting sports can develop an excellent boost of self confidence. The gratification of performing well on the range is an empowering experience. Education is the first step to becoming a safe shooter.

I have successfully taught women and men of all ages. I specialize in teaching complete beginners, senior citizens as well as those with specific goals; in a fun, safe and friendly environment.

From just learning to be safe in your everyday life to getting your concealed carry permits, and everything in between; I can help you achieve your desired goals. After all, Shooting Is Recreationally Therapeutic!

About MCD

We believe people can make a difference

Be they heroes serving in the Military or Police, or simply law abiding citizens we teach our students with one goal in mind – to provide people with the skills and mindset to enter into crisis situations and prevail. Even if against great odds. We recognize that our students make a difference in an often dangerous world overseas or right here at home every day. Our mission is to give them the skills to make that difference. Sadly there are terrible people and circumstances in this world. We believe in heroes that bravely stand up to those dark forces. We at Michigan Combat Dynamix are here to give them the edge when the wolf is at the door.

We believe in practicality

We don’t believe in show boating or fluff. We don’t punch tickets here. Our students or their departments pay hard earned money and spend valuable time and deserve great instruction that is practical, applicable and realistic. They need the tools to potentially save their lives and the lives of others. We seek to meet that need every day. We strive to give each individual quality instruction from proven teachers with real world experience.

We believe in our system

The four pillars of any Michigan Combat Dynamix class will be built on the pillars of our school. The “X” in our name isn’t by accident. The four points of the “X” represent the four pillars that guide our philosophy of training. Those are Safety, Tactics, Mindset and Efficiency.

dy·nam·ic adjective dī-ˈna-mik

1. Relating to physical force or energy. 2. Marked by usually continuous and productive activity or change.

We are seeking to productively change our students, both in abilities and mindset. Beyond the marksmanship, we want to teach students the will to succeed against all odds when put into harm’s way. We make sure our students are the good guys, and we want the good guys to win. Who are the good guys? The Soldier on patrol, the Cop on the beat, the Citizen who refuses to be a victim.

She is extremely patient. She is very supportive and encouraging and is a great mentor. Her classes are fun and make you want to come back for more." Mary R., "Patty is a knowledgeable, hands-on educator. I learned more from Patty in one session than I ever did from any other form of safety instruction I've ever participated in. She is a good judge of character, and her approach to the subject matter and how it relates to the individual is stellar. Her instruction has been beneficial, both physically and psychologically, giving me a new-found self confidence. I enjoy learning from and working with Patty, and I hope to again in the very near future.", Michelle H., "I began as a student of the "Women On Target" program that Patty leads at Monumental. She did such a great job teaching the class that I knew right there and then that I wanted support her program and help inspire others to learn and grow. Patty is clear and concise while imparting information, with a strong focus on safety. This gives her students the confidence needed to participate while remaining safe. I strongly recommend Patty as an instructor/leader. Even after completing her classes she has continued to inspire me and encourage me to become a coach myself. She dedicates much of her time helping others and is always available to lead, help and inspire." Sharon T.

Women are changing the gun industry and are the most rapidly rising demographic in a male dominated sport. Yet most women find it difficult to locate instructors that understand their needs. As a Certified NRA Pistol Instructor, Roxy Rueckert recognizes that women are different than men when it comes to the shooting sports. She says, "We learn differently, we carry differently, we respond differently. Women want a class designed around their needs and that's what we try to do at Defensible Me, LLC. In a male dominated sport we have to overcome many challenges that men don't face. Such as: OMG, it's soo loud! How can I carry my gun safely? What holsters work for women? How do I safely draw my gun? What about keeping my gun in my purse? Do I have to buy new clothes to properly conceal my gun? It's all part of the challenge women face and that we address with our classes."

We want you to learn to carry safely and confidently. It's all about training. We understand what you need. And we bring it!

Roxy is an active member of the community. She's participates in several local clubs, started her own group called "The Right Girls", was instrumental in starting the Ladies Defensive Pistol League at Tri-County Gun Club, spends her quiet moments creating amazing pencil drawings (see them here: www.BridlewoodArt.com), and belongs to three local gun ranges. 

Student Testimonies

"Thank you Roxy and Paul for a great class yesterday! You gave us ladies wonderful new exercises to practice both at home and on the range. After I do the homework, I look forward to seeing how everything translates at the range. Still can't believe the 2+ second savings on my four single shot with three reloads in between exercise (thank you Paul). Great class!!!"

T.D.~ Lake Oswego, Oregon

Just want to say a big THANK YOU for you and Paul's I instructions yesterday. I can honestly say that is the biggest improvement I have seen in my marksmanship in the last two years. I've been shooting for 5-6 years and learned a lot by classes and practice. But the last year or two I stalled and could not get In the center for the life of me... then comes you and Paul and all your rockstar wisdom!! Thanks again can't wait for the next class.

S.S. Salem, Oregon

My husband and I really enjoyed the Hand Gun ”Defensible Me” Class. Roxy and Paul, both geared the class to each of our own abilities.

We gained a lot of valuable information from the class and would definitely take another class with them. We would recommend this class to anyone, any level.

L.B. & H. B. Wilsonville, Oregon

Anyone and everyone thinking of getting into guns should take lessons, and Roxy from Defensible Me is a great instructor. Making sure you understand safety first. I took a 2 hour private class and besides having a great time, I truly learned a lot from her and felt I really moved forward in my training and safety."

Our focus at Artemis Defense Institute is to teach individuals to improve their situational awareness and to inoculate stress by always being prepared with a plan. 

Student Testimonials:

Came recently for tactical training class. Sandy, Steven, Rich and the rest of the crew were awesome. Super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. This is a hidden gem in OC. Their real world training simulations really get you acclimated to situational awareness and help you realize you always need more training. They preach safety (as they should) and give you constructive feedback and tips after each simulation. They take their business seriously but at the same time this has to be one of the most fun places I've been in awhile. I'll be back. ~ Chris R, 10/6/14

While most FOS Systems and FATS are great, what Artemis has done is simply awesome. They have taken technology for the police officer, Military, private sector security, and defense minded individuals to the next level to bring their skills up to par and sharpen what skills you already have. We had a great time, learned a lot and hope to see you guys again soon! ~ Jimmy F, 9/28/14

This year I decided to take a few classes and learn some new things. One of my goals was to take a gun class. Artemis was recommended by a co-worker and we went to check it out. After having a tour of the facility and meeting the owner's we decided to take a class.

We started with the Art of the Pistol. The class was over 2 hours and started with an educational experience. The class was great and then we moved to the simulators. The simulators are very interactive and you get a very good overview of how you handle stress if someone is shooting at you. We started with the simulator that is basically paper targets, then we moved to the next two simulators that put in real life situations. This was very eye-opening in how you handle someone shooting at you and at what point do you fire back.
We all learned so much, had a really great time and can't wait to go back for other classes that they offer.

There is no live fire, the guns have been modified with CO2 canisters and I was really comfortable with this. Have you ever been to a gun range with someone on the line next to you who has bullets and never fired before? Not very comfortable. This is the place to learn.

The owner's are extremely professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend Artemis to anyone wanting to educate themselves before buying or shooting a gun. ~Terri B, 3/18/14

"Today I took the basic pistol class with Sarah and Rob, and I'll have to admit at first, I was pretty intimidated, and nervous! But they made it so easy to be and feel comfortable and confident around and shooting the guns! Not only are they incredibly knowledgeable, but they make it fun and interesting! And they are GREAT supporters, and really care about how you do! I would definitely recommend them to ANYONE and look forward to coming back and shooting with them in the future," Amanda M.

CDT offers seminars to communities, businesses, and groups to provide instruction on personal protection. A single seminar will help participants to respond correctly to various threats and situations, allowing them to either stop the threat or create a window of opportunity for escape. Combine this with the use of personal protection devices (kubatons, pepper spray, stun guns, and firearms), and the chances of success become infinitely higher.
CDT offers instruction in empty hand defense as well as armed defense including firearms courses and concealed handgun permit classes.
 

Student Testimonies

My wife, son and I recently attended a USCCA Concealed Carry course taught by Shelby Wax. Shelby did a superb job of teaching the course, covering all the required material and also interjecting quite a bit of additional useful information on things like holsters, mental attitude, and so on. Shelby’s knowledge is impressive, however she’s still very “real” and really nice to spend time with. Some people who teach these kinds of courses can be pretty “over the top” hard-core types, Shelby is exactly the opposite. I highly recommend anyone needing a CCW course (or other anything else Shelby teaches, such as women’s defense, martial arts, etc) take them from Shelby Wax, you’ll be as impressed as we were!
Paul, Liz, and Anthony

“I had already taken a Concealed Carry class through another company and thought I had learned a lot in that class. The fact of the matter is that class did not cover near as much as the class I sat through taught by Shelby Wax. Shelby’s Concealed Carry class covered the very basics of gun safety, the differences in guns, as well as great information regarding various considerations of concealed carry (just to name a few topics). Plus we got hands on shooting time at the range. The overall conclusion is overwhelming! I walked away from Shelby’s class knowing more about gun safety and guns in general than I did when I walked in. I also had more confidence in myself and of what type of gun I am looking for. I recommend Shelby’s Concealed Carry class to everyone that is interested in concealed carry or to those just needing basic safety. Thank you Shelby for taking the time to help me!”
Candice


"Having been part of the Centerline program has empowered me, and given me the confidence to defend myself. After going through this women’s self-defense program, I feel more confident to stand up for myself, keep myself, and my children safe. After having neck surgery, I attribute having been in the Centerline program, working hard, and being committed to coming to classes, to my speedy recovery. Four months after having neck surgery, I was able to test for my black belt in this program. Centerline is an excellent program to improve team building skills, working with others, and helping one another. Centerline Defense Tactics is not just about learning to defend yourself and helping others, it’s also about being there for one another, bonding, and forging new friendships, as well as supporting one another in good times and bad. I feel that this program, a program for women to learn how to defend themselves is extremely important. I am a mother of two girls, and want to know that they would be able to defend themselves if they were ever in a situation."

Women are often targets of physical attacks and are usually at a physical disadvantage. While carrying a firearm and being proficient in using it doesn't guarantee personal safety, it can certainly increase your chances of surviving an attack. A restraining order is just a piece of paper. Take charge of your own safety and the safety of your loved ones - learn how to properly and safely use a firearm.

My family came to Texas in 1840 in a time when everyone woman could and knew how to handle a firearm to protect themselves and farms. In 1840 every pioneer woman knew how to take care and protect herself and family. We have gotten away from this thinking and I believe this should have never come to be.

I would love for every woman out there to be able to know, how to handle firearms to protect themselves and families in this century too.

Four years ago, I made the decision to learn how to shoot proficiently and safely. I tried teaching myself, but the results fell short of what I wanted to accomplish. I was lucky when I found instructors who I consider the best in the state and beyond. They gave me the training and confidence that I needed. Because of their instruction and their belief in me, I am an NRA Instructor. I am passionate about paying it forward by teaching women how to protect themselves, shoot safely and confidently.

I specialize in teaching women about their responsibility in owning, storing, and using a firearm safely. If you own a firearm or have a conceal carry license, it's important for you and your family to store and use your firearm safely.
