"I just finished taking the "Basic Firearm Use & Safety Training" in Palm Bay. The training was approximately 3.5 hours which includes detailed class instructions and outdoors range time with a weapon. 
Loved the personal one on one training at the range. I have attended training in another state and there was no one on one range training..... that was not the case with Femme Fatale Arms & Training, Rich was very informative and encouraging - explaining what you did right and how you can do it differently or what you did incorrectly. 
If you are looking to have your Carry/Conceal license, this is the place to go for training."

"I had the great opportunity to take the Beginner Safety gun course with Maria & Nikki yesterday at the Indian River Gun Range in Sebastian. The class was incredible. Not only are these ladies extremely knowledgeable they put my nerves at complete ease. I learned so much & feel so much more confident with carrying my weapon. I totally encourage anyone interested in learning more about carrying your weapon take this class!!! When we went to the range to shoot they were very encouraging & I truly enjoyed it. Thank you ladies for a great class & you will see me again!!!"

Testimonial

"I have been recommending my friends come to your CC class and then take at a minimum the Form & Accuracy and Skill-Builder 1 course. Although I tell them they should take them all. I have been surprised to learn how many have weapons, have never had a class or don't fire to remain comfortable with it."
