Teaches: Basic Handgun Class for Women and Youth Firearm Safety
The best way to introduce Carol and her passion is to use her own words:
I enjoy shooting and teaching women the fun and sport of shooting. The gun is just a tool that can be fun if used safely and correctly. It does not have to be used for defense. I believe in teaching women the right ways to protect themselves and their families, and I love empowering them by showing them how to enjoy shooting without being scared of a gun.
