Warrior Woman Firearms Training / A Gurley and A Gun

Raleigh, North Carolina

My name is Shelley Gurley and I am in the Raleigh/Durham area. I have been shooting for over 13 years and instructing for over 10 years. I am certified with the National Rifle Association (NRA) to teach Basic Pistol 1, Personal Protection Inside the Home, and Refuse To Be A Victim. I am also a Chief Range Safety Officer, as well as, credentialed with the State of North Carolina to teach Conceal Carry. I am a certified instructor for The Well Armed Woman, and previously a Chapter Leader in North Carolina. I currently enjoy a career as a police officer full time and appreciate part time work with the Wake County Firearms Education and Training Center in Apex. I have previously worked with other local ranges to bring firearms instruction to the public. I enjoy working with new/newer shooters and I have a real knack for working with women. As a woman in a male-dominated industry, I can appreciate and value how differently women learn and how they want to be taught. With my work in law enforcement, I am able to bring a dynamic approach to self-defense which makes my one-on-one lessons exciting, interesting, and realistic. I pride myself on having developed a number of courses for new to newer shooters that help bridge the gap between learning the basics of shooting to becoming prepared for carrying a handgun concealed and possible self-defense situations. I teach classes throughout the year and am available for private lessons. I enjoy developing shooting drills for the range and dry fire drills for at-home training for all of my students; but more than anything, I love watching my students grow in abilities and confidence.
