from our students

"I am so happy I chose this concealed carry class! The staff was very informative and friendly. It was an extremely comfortable environment in the classroom as well as out on the range. There was no rush and always an open platform to ask questions. Tina was my hands on instructor and she gave me so many awesome tips for using my handgun. Thank you!" -Tiffany Eubank


"Love the classes! Ms. Maria (owner) is exceptionally nice and very knowledgeable. There should be more places like this one around. Very fortunate to have this one in Palm Bay." - Angela B Ivanovskiy


"I just completed the Basic Firearm Use and Safety class and it was far better than the class I took elsewhere. Not only was this class full of useful knowledge about gun safety but Richard took the time to explain a lot more about the guns and ammunition, and answered all of our questions and then the best part was that you actually get to go to the range and work one on one with amazing instructors who did't judge you and were very patient and understanding ... I highly recommend this course to anybody (even guys) who are even a little bit apprehensive about shooting or owning a gun. You won't regret it."

-Tracy Cramer


"Wow! We took the Basic firearms safety/ conceal carry class today and we could not have had a better experience! Richard was knowledgeable, friendly, approachable and FUNNY! It wasn't boring or drawn out. There was a lot of information but it was explained well and at a good pace. Dennis was also very friendly and knowledgeable.  When we got to the range portion of the class Richard, Jacob and Tina made things so relaxed and comfortable. Even the ladies in the class who had never shot a gun before were able to overcome that initial fear and by the end they were doing awesome. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this class to anyone who wanted to learn about gun safety and/ or obtain a conceal carry permit. Can't wait to take the skill builder class!" - Jen Engle

Customer Service

"Finally a really nice store for women, I felt so comfortable there. They were patiently answering all my questions about buying a gun. They have so many brands of purses to choose from, I think this is my new favorite store!"  

-Heather Delmar


"Absolutely love this place. Everyone is always so nice and helpful." 

-Kari Corley


"So extremely happy and thankful that a place geared toward empowering us women even exists! (Of course men are welcome here too!) But whats even more of a bonus is the fact that the owners are some of the most amazing people you'll meet! (As is all of the staff!)... Whether you have never even held a gun in your hand and are looking to get training to obtain a CCW, or are already a CCW holder and looking to purchase a firearm or any of the 100's of accessories they sell, or even just take a refresher course, this is definitely the place to go!... I can tell you from my personal experience that Rich is an amazing instructor and you will never have to worry about feeling as though you are being judged in any way, shape, or form for asking what you may even think is the dumbest of questions, (or even a hundred questions at that!) as this is definitely a judgement free zone where you almost feel like a family member!... To sum this up, I highly recommend this place, and If I could give it 10 stars I would!... Thank you again Rich, and Femme Fatale Arms & Training for an amazing experience and afternoon!"  

-Kristine Waldron-White


"Thank you to Ms. Maria and the whole staff that have assisted me over the last month in the purchase of my new gun. I couldn't have asked for a better experience - kind, attentive, no pressure or rush. Listened to my likes & dislikes and helped guide me."

-Caitlin Rebensky


"Went in to check it out and was SHOCKED by the Excellant service and knowledge by Dennis and the owner Maria. I can't wait to go back and pick up my new gun and take the CCW class. Way to make this girl feel comfortable!!!"  

-Laura Balmes


"This is such a great store, with so much more. The concealed carry class was very helpful as well. Thank you"  

-Lynda Austin Keller Williams


"I have a handicap due to multiple surgeries that affected my upper body strength. I had purchased a gun from another store and it was a terrible purchase for me. The slide was way too hard for me and it left me feeling insecure and feared hurting myself. I went into this store and met Dennis. After explaining my situation to him, he was kind, patient and understanding. I know I finally made the right pistol purchase with his help and no longer have buyers remorse. He took the time to understand my specific needs and I'm grateful for it. 
Dennis was the greatest to work with. Smart hiring choice by the owners! Thanks to him, you've gained a lifetime customer."

-Chrissy Valdez

"Just stopped in and loved the store and excellent service! I'll definitely be back!"

"Great environment!! Any woman new to carrying and using a firearm should definitely visit this place. Signed up for the Concealed Weapons class. Can't wait!!"

-Kelly Elannan


"We bought 2 carry purses and a wallet for such reasonable prices. My family felt very comfortable and peaceful in their store. Many gun store staff are so aggressive and feel the need to push all their knowledge on you but Femme Fatale made us feel at home. We can't wait to come see the new location. Thanks for being there for the women who like to carry."

-Amy Webb Herrell


"This is definitely a family business that has a heart for educating and training women in being confident using a firearm. I was new to shooting and, from the very first time I walked into the store, I was welcomed into their community, immediately being offered knowledge and support in a nonjudgemental environment. Maria is amazing and really goes above and beyond for her customers. I highly recommend purchasing your firearm, gear, and training from them. They also have a ladies shooting club that is really fun and beneficial for getting extra practice. Definitely make the time to go!"

-Chelsea Stacy

I want to thank you for providing a safe and supportive environment for individuals to learn how to shoot and ease the fear when they go to the range. My partner attended the course this past weekend and she fell in love. The best part is that it also built her self-confidence. She has talked about attending future courses and building her skill level! ...Thank you again!
