    Ladies Lead Instructor

    Vickie Kelley

    Daughter, Mother of six, and the family self-protector and defender.

    I have owned a gun for many years, but I really had no idea how to use it. I somehow thought it made me safe just because I possessed it. In fact, I once took it on a camping trip, thinking I had protection for myself. I had no idea I had loaded the "bullets" into the "clip" backward. How embarrassing! The ONLY thing I had was a false sense of security.

     

    Fast forward to just one-year short year ago (October 2019). I decided it was time to get serious. I recruited my friend and we attended Will Parker's USCCA Premium Concealed Carry class. The amount and depth of information was almost overwhelming, but I left the classroom that evening with a desire to learn even more. With Will's guidance and immense patience, I have learned and accomplished more than I ever thought possible. I know I can now, more than ever, protect my family and myself. The added benefit is, my children are learning to protect themselves as well.

     

    After hundreds of hours of training, I am not even close to where I want to be but, I believe what I've learned is important, so much so, that I have become a USCCA Certified Instructor. Alongside Will, I want to share with you what I have learned (and continue to learn), while showing you that it is never too late to start, and you don't need any experience to begin. I would love for you to join me on the journey.
