Armed and Confident Academy

My online course is designed to take you from casual gun-owner to confident carrier! I know you’re busy, so I wanted to make it as accessible and flexible as possible! You can start and finish it on your own time.

I know how you feel, I've been there!

I didn’t grow up around guns and when I entered the world of firearms, I noticed that I didn’t see many people who represented ME.

I was overwhelmed by all there was to learn and felt like it would be forever before I would be comfortable carrying a firearm. Years later, I’m a licensed instructor and rarely leave the house without a gun on me. I feel confident and comfortable having it by my side. I’ve made it my life’s goal to educate as many people as possible, and now 

you can get there too!
