No matter how society leads us to believe gender equality is the norm, women still have unspoken societal constraints that govern how we... eat... dress... speak... sit... Better do it all “Like a Lady.” Now is the time to learn how to protect yourself - “Like a Lady.”
We value running courses that emphasize firearms safety, confidence, and practice, while upholding NRA & MCRGO standards of training and ethics. While firearms training programs are open to men and women, our overall mission is to afford women who are less experienced or comfortable with firearms an opportunity to learn in a stress-free, encouraging environment.... and have fun while we do it!
Alycia Pollotta created Like a Lady Firearms Training in October 2018 with a vision to empower women and beginner shooters. Her mission is to give them the training they need to confidently and safely protect themselves and their loved ones in the face of danger.
Alycia has been studying and practicing lethal & less-than-lethal force for over a decade. She spent 5 years Active Duty in the Marine Corps and is a current NRA & MCRGO Certified Firearms Instructor.
In her "spare time," Alycia is a home school mom of 3 wonderful humans, horse mom, dog mom, cat mom, goat mom, lizard mom, and significant other to one very lucky man . All the while she is always working on her next impactful goal!
Ciara Stumm is Like a Lady Firearms Training's first employee, Operations Manager, Certified Range Safety Officer, Beginner Pistol Instructor, office administrator, Smokeless Range aficionado, and Alycia's right-hand gal.
If she’s not wearing one of these hats, you’ll likely find her outdoors creating incredible art with her camera, creating jewlery, or snuggling ALL of the pets (hers or ANYONE else’s).
She shares Alycia's passion for bringing firearms safety & awareness to the community, and serving women through education and empowerment.
