Karen H. - Basic Concealed Handgun
I recently took the Guns and Lace Basic Concealed Handgun class. I had such a great time!! The atmosphere of the class was one where I was completely comfortable asking questions. Jessica was very welcoming and reassuring. She is very well versed in safety and has a passion for educating beginners as well as people who have experience handling firearms. One thing I really liked was how she used specific language to reinforce positive views of firearms, helping to do away with (or at least, not support) the negative connotations that they can sometimes have.

I have heard many others say that they couldn't imagine carrying a firearm in their bra. One of the things we were able to do, since this was an all female class, was try on all the different types of holsters; including the FlashBang bra holster. I was shocked at how comfortable it was, even while sitting. It was great that we were able to try them on because I think under ordinary circumstances many of us may not have even given them a second thought.

We actually ran over because we were asking lots of question and having some really good conversations, in addition to having range time to practice some of the things we learned. This also gave us an opportunity to use different calibers (and sizes) of firearms so we could determine what might be best for us individually. By the time I left the class, not only did I have tons of fun, I felt more comfortable handling my own firearm. As a matter of fact, the day after taking the class, I was comfortable enough to go to the range by myself, for the first time.

I highly recommend this class! Not only is this class for the beginner but even for someone who might be more experienced and would like a refresher.
 
Cambree M. - Basic Concealed Handgun
My husband is a concealed weapon carrier and I've always wanted to as well but have been respectfully intimidated by firearms because I don't have much experience! I took the Guns and Lace class with my mother & sister in law and left feeling empowered and confident that I could safely handle my own firearm. It was informative, fun and gave me so much hands on experience in just a 6 hour class. It covers everything from the bare bone basics to finding out what style was right for me, how to shoot it and how I could carry it. I went in seeing the flash bang holster and thought I would never in a million years want to carry a gun in my bra, but after Jessica showed us the variety of holsters and allowing us to try them on, as irony would have it, I was the most comfortable and concealed with the flash bang! I think every woman who's ever considered carrying or just wants to know more about firearms should hands down take this class! I can't wait to purchase my first firearm and I owe it all to Guns and Lace. Now my husband and I are protected, have a new hobby we can do together,and he can see how good of a shot I am
 
Marge M. - Basic Concealed Handgun
After taking Jessica's Guns and Lace course, I highly recommend it. Jessica was an excellent instructor, stressing gun safety. We had the opportunity to try out several firearms and get a hands on look at a wide variety of concealed carry options. I have had a concealed handgun permit for many years, but found the class to be helpful and fun as well. The attendees went from age 20 to over 60, and from total novices to ladies already owning several guns. For some, it was a review and for others a brand new door was opened. Ladies.....do yourself a favor - take the course! Jessica - you did an awesome job! Thank you!
 
Donna R. - Basic Concealed Handgun
I took my first class at Skagit Range and loved it. Guns And Lace was exactly what I was looking for. I got to try six different guns so I can better decide what I want.
 
Kimberly S. - Basic Concealed Handgun
5 out of 5 stars for the Guns and Lace class! I hadn't fired a gun in many years and felt uncomfortable doing so without a little bit of professional education under my belt. So after watching 23 hours of Patrick Kilcherman of Concealed Carry University, I decided to take the class so I could feel confident in handling guns safely and get some "hands on" training. I highly recommend this class to any lady planning to fire a handgun. The wealth of information Jessica shared in the relaxed classroom atmosphere she provided was invaluable. She was thorough and patient in answering all questions. I couldn't have hoped for a more knowledgeable trainer who right from the get-go made me feel confident. I left her classroom and range time feeling totally confident about my abilities. Thumbs up!
 
Laura K. - Basic Concealed Handgun
Love this place! Jessica Merlino is an awesome, patient instructor and made me feel very comfortable with a firearm. I did a one-on-one consult with her, followed by ladies night, and then her Guns & Lace class. A couple days ago, I was in conversation with a family member about my recent time at the range. He brought out 3 different firearms for me to hold and I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable they were in my hands...no more anxiety thanks to Jessica. Love this place and will be back many times to come. Thank you Jessica
