Preparing You For Something
We Pray Never Happens

Certified Gun Training For Women & Men



We teach non-lethal forms of self defense and comprehensive classes on firearms, gun safety and conceal carry permitting.  

It’s not just about learning to shoot but owning your strength, refining your skills and harnessing your power as a woman so you can live with confidence and without fear at any level of skill.

Through teaching women non-lethal and lethal forms of protection we give them sovereignty over their bodies, minds and life. We provide them with the tools to have agency over their choices and who they are in the world.


Gain Confidence & Community

Remove Fear

Purchasing A Gun


As a victim of rape and having a threat made on her life, Victoria knows what it is like to live in fear and never wishes that feeling or experience on anybody.

No body – man or woman – should have to live like this and with the right training they never will be.

The Academy was developed to support women in finding freedom, sovereignty, and peace of mind knowing they can protect themselves and their loved ones if needed.

Our focus is on you.

Getting you the training you need to be fully competent and confident in your ability to use a firearm or non-lethal weapon.

We teach the basics to the advanced and break down the process for our students one step at a time. We want you 100% confident in your knowledge and ability to handle, load and fire a gun or use a non-lethal weapon for protection.

We focus on fundamentals and build everything from there.

Women’s bodies are different from men. As well as their reason for taking a firearms/non-lethal training. Our classes focus on knowledge, hands on practice and encouragement. We are not aggressive, militaristic or a tactical training school.

All our staff are certified through the NRA as well as hold multiple teaching certifications. With the Women’s Firearm Academy you always get the most up to date training designed for civilian carrying and shooting.

    5 star review  Victoria is an awesome instructor and always willing to help everyone succeed. I have taken 3 different classes and each class was very relaxed and not bound by time restraint. All my questions were answered completely and in a way that I (first time gun user) could understand. I would encourage anyone who wants to improve their shooting or further their knowledge to take a class from her.
