Women's North Carolina Concealed Carry


Our mission is to eliminate the fear of firearms in women allowing them the confidence to protect themselves and their families.


  • Small Learning Environment

GIRLZ on F.I.R.E. offers a small intimate setting for women. Our maximum class size consists of eight students. This allows more hands-on one-on-one interaction for learning the laws and fundamentals of marksmanship. Grip, sight alignment, stance, and trigger control are taught in each  session.

  • Comprehensive and Interactive

Our courses are interactive and use a variety of re-forced learning techniques. To ensure that you have complete knowledge of handgun safety we provide training on the safe use of gun handling and the law governing justified self-defense.


Services offered include North Carolina Concealed Carry Handgun Certification Training, Intro to Handguns (by request for small groups), and Handgun Cleaning to the residents of Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, and the surrounding areas.

Formed as a limited liability corporation, is a new company operating in the Firearms Training Industry. GIRLZ on F.I.R.E., L.L.C. operates primarily as a service provider.


I so enjoyed this class, best training ever. I am prior military and this training superceded all my previous qualifications trainings! Rhonda and Margie, both of you are excellent instructors, very personable, upfront and knowledgeable!!! Highly recommend this class!!!πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ˜

– P. Petree

Highly recommend this!!! It was fun and informative. The group was small enough to give each attendee personal attention, so it’s perfect for a newby. It was very confidence building, and I got to spend the day with other sassy ladies.

– K. Russell

I so enjoyed taking this course. Rhonda and Margie are the best! My first time EVER handling a firearm, but they really made me feel reassured in their training. This class is a must for all women, but especially beginners. These Girlz are on Fire! Get on board ladies and sign up today!
