Carol’s Crusaders


A big part of the Bearing Arms Against Domestic Abuse campaign is introducing victims to people who want to help them get started onto their path toward building an enhanced personal protection plan.

For this effort, we joined with the Well Armed Woman and the NRA to partner with Carol Bowne’s family in creating a list of Carol’s Crusaders: a network of instructors and gun ranges who are generously offering a discount (monetary or percentage) to anyone with an active restraining order who is looking to receive self defense, gun safety or firearms training in the month of October.

These are the amazing trainers and business owners who want to help:


Tony Landenwich, NRA Instructor Southeastern Defensive Firearms Training
Offering 50% discount for any defensive carry class and will wave all fees for any basic or introductory pistol class

Don Odom, Lead Instructor at BEAR Safety and Security Solutions, LLC
