“Sometimes you take a training course, and you leave retaining one piece of good information. Then you take A Girl & A Gun sponsored training course and you return to your law enforcement duties with skills that will save a life and make you truly reflect on how important it is to train with your firearm,” said Sgt. Nichole Brimhall of the Elgin (TX) Police Department.
“I came away from this training with renewed purpose and confidence. That sort of thing can’t really be bought. I can’t thank everyone involved enough,” said Officer Cynthea Gunderson of the Crested Butte (CO) Marshal’s Office.
“Between the laid back environment, the excellent instruction, and phenomenal training facility, this was the best post-academy experience I’ve received so far. It impresses me that an organization like A Girl & A Gun with its sponsors was able to put on this event and create much needed support for women in law enforcement,” said Officer Lindsey Baker of the Hanover County (VA) Sheriff’s Office.
“A Girl & A Gun is such an incredible organization. The ‘Back the Women in Blue’ event gives females in law enforcement the chance to become more confident in skills that could save their life one day. I was honored to be a part of such an event,” said Officer Falynn Monk of the Nacogdoches (TX) Police Department.
“This event was by far some the best training I’ve had in my law enforcement career. The environment is amazing. A Girl & A Gun has not only provided this amazing training that I can use every day on the job, but has also allowed me to make long lasting friendships!” said Officer Amanda Jeske, Pflugerville (TX) Police Department.
“The ladies that came together for this training are some of the best female officers that I have ever met. We often have a hard time in this male-dominated profession, but these women are great examples for female officers everywhere,” said Sgt. Kat Silvia of the Dallas (TX) Police Department.
“It was extremely gratifying to see a tremendous amount of support for the badge that I’m very proud to put on every day to protect and serve my community. Every day, in every city and town across the country, police officers are performing vital services that help make their communities safer. Being afforded stellar training like this aids us in carrying out our mission with honor and integrity,” said Officer Meghan Vold of the Park Forest (IL) Police Department.
“The friendship bonds and camaraderie I made this week will stay with me forever. The incredible generosity of the event sponsors and the gracious efforts by A Girl & A Gun was awe inspiring,” said Sgt. Kimberly Gill of the Sunset Valley (TX) Police Department.
