Instructor Lindsey

Instructor Lindsey of National Shooters in Northern Virginia specializes in classes for female shooters looking to improve their shooting skills

Lindsey started shooting in 2008 to expand her knowledge of the unknown. Her father always told her to become knowledgeable of all things so she would know how to handle herself in many situations. Lindsey has made it her priority in life to learn various skills so she would always be able to take care of herself; such as how to drive a stick shift, change a tire, and operate a firearm. It was shortly after she took entry level gun classes, like the class offered by National Shooters, that she became passionate about improving her marksmanship and gun handling skills. Soon after, she started competing in IDPA and USPSA. Lindsey loves teaching the her Northern Virginia community to help them better prepare themselves for any situation!
