About Madisyn

Madisyn (Instructor) & Elsie

NRA Firearms Instructor - Hunter - Dog Mom - Boone CO PF Board - Range Safety Officer

I Carry My Own (ICMO) is a business/brand that offers firearm instruction for women only. I started this business, because I knew women needed their own avenue & resources to make their way into the firearm industry. The firearm industry can be intimidating, so I decided to put myself in a place, to be that helping hand to assist women stepping in this industry. Once you find comfort in anything, you can't help but grow your confidence & knowledge.

My goal in life has always been to become a Firearms Instructor. Once I became certified & teaching classes. I knew I was called to educate women on firearms, the handling, safety, and help grow their confidence. Women should be able to walk into a gun store or range and have confidence and feel no intimidation. From loading a pistol to firing, knowing what to look for when selecting a pistol for themselves.

Ladies, I am here to assist you in anyway I can help to build your confidence and education in the firearms industry. Male dominated. Let's break the narrative.

• Offering Iowa Carry Class
• Pistol Education
• 1:1 Instruction
• Private Group Classes

All instructed by a female NRA Instructor.

 Madisyn is an Excellent Firearm Instructor- I came to the Pistol class knowing enough to be dangerous and left confident enough to be Safe. No pressure or performance anxiety, just knowledgeable and patient guidance for a super educational experience. Don’t wait or wonder - just do it!

Madisyn is very patient, knowledgeable and dedicated to teaching woman about guns, gun safety, and shooting. I wanted to learn about hand guns, how to pick out the one I wanted, gun safety and how to shoot. I highly recommend any lady wanting to feel comfortable asking questions, Madisyn is the lady to teach you. I took my Permit to Carry and Pistol Orientation. I look forward in gaining comfort of carrying a gun in me and continued shooting practice. I also look forward in continuing education opportunities that Madisyn will be adding.

I took the gun handling class last night with Madisyn and I can’t say enough great things about it and her! Madisyn rocks! Her confidence and energy is contagious and I left there feeling more comfortable with my gun than I have ever been. My husband was impressed - he said he couldn’t believe how far I had come in just those two and half hours spent with Madisyn! She definitely pushed me outside of my comfort zone but I had an awesome time. Thank you, Madisyn, and I am looking forward to the next class on the 28th! Ladies, treat yourself to a class or a lesson with Madisyn - you won’t be sorry!!
