"I didn’t own a gun, but as a woman living alone, I wanted to buy one and learn how to use it. Karen helped me through the whole process. She let me try her variety of pistols, made a recommendation for my purchase, and then coached me on shooting until I could shoot safely and accurately. She’s patient, professional, competent, and a ton of fun."

Chris - Apex, NC

"Karen is a skilled and patient firearms teacher, trainer, as well as a mentor.  I had never fired a gun before stepping up to the range with her. I immediately felt comfortable and was able to quickly put into practice what she had taught me.  I can't imagine a more more skilled instructor.  And, I will return again and again to Karen as I try to gain more proficiency in the handling and operation of firearms."

Bobby - Cary, NC

"As a woman interested in learning how to properly handle a gun, I looked to Karen as an instructor I could connect with.  And, I am sure I chose the right instructor.  But, not for the reasons I first imagined.  Karen is a clearly skilled instructor who speaks from experience both as a firearms expert but also as one well versed in personal security.  But, beyond the woman to woman connection, Karen's non-nonsense but patient and clear instruction made our training sessions useful, easy to understand and progressive as I built upon some limited knowledge of firearms and shooting.  She is an extremely good teacher and one that puts me at ease every time I am with her.  I would highly recommend her to anyone - man or woman - interested in learning to handle firearms the right way."
