High Demand for Female Gun Instructors and We have one of the best!

Well look what we have here, CNN notices local firearm businesses and the high demand for female firearms instructors. Last years increasing demand for firearms has led way for more training from certified firearms instructors and guess who has one of the best looking and most qualified female instructors?! That’s right, National Shooters Instructor Lindsey (also my wife) has received hundreds of hours of professional defensive firearm instruction and has trained many entry level classes here with National Shooters.

Pat from Bethesda, Maryland reviews our Conceal Carry and Home Defense Class

“I took the armed self defense training day course in April of 2014. I had a basic familiarity with handguns but wanted to recieve formal training and make sure I was operating safely. Sean, Lindsey and the National Shooters team did an amazing job from start to finish. They were prompt, courteous and informative in pre-class communications and spent an appropriate amount of time in the classroom reviewing mitigation and safe handling techniques. After classroom review we spent the majority of the day on the range in beautiful West Virginia. The day flew by and was quite literally a blast. The instructors put a premium on safety and clear communication. I left feeling more confident in my shooting ability,  knowledge of firearm mechanics and safety. All of this at an affordable rate and only 2 hours from DC. If you are looking for safe, professional and convenient instruction – look no further. National Shooters has you covered.”

Pat attended our April Conceal Carry and Home Defense Class. It was his first firearms class ever and he did great! Thanks Pat!

Paul from Maryland reviews our Armed Self Defense Training Day, April 2014

Paul from Bethesda, Maryland attended our April Armed Self Defense Training Day where we covered the basics of conceal carry and home defense at a private range in Northern Virginia. Thanks for your support man! He writes:

I would highly recommend this class for any level shooter. I am a novice shooter, only been shooting for about a year and this class gave me a lot of confidence. It covers a wide range of topics including mitigation strategies, when and how to approach a target and of course, what I went there for, shooting. The instructors were extremely friendly, professional and approachable. Both Lindsey and Sean did a lot of 1 on 1 training, which catered to each shooter’s specific needs and skill set. Set in the mountains of West Virginia, the location was fun to shoot at as well as beautiful. Overall, if you’re looking for an affordable and informative class with great instructors and to learn while having fun, this is definitely the one for you. Thanks National Shooters for a great weekend, I’ll definitely be back.

Hope to see you out there again soon!
