Teaches: Basic Handgun Class for Women and Youth Firearm Safety

Carol Conklin

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. 

Carol holds NRA Certifications in many areas:

  • NRA Certified Instructor in Basic Pistol
  • NRA Certified Home Firearm Safety
  • NRA Certified Range Safety Officer
  • NRA Certified Refuse to be a Victim

She is also Chapter Leader of The Well Armed Woman South King County Chapter which meets at Champion Arms the second Wednesday of each month.
