The United States Marines Trains with CCW Maggie
By Maggie Mordaunt
I’m known in the industry as ͞CCW Maggie͟, owner and lead instructor for Homeland Personal Protection Firearms Training Company.But you can just call me Maggie.
My company offers conceal carry permits for NV, UT and FL since 2010, basic fundamental marksmanship training, and personal defense shooting both inside and outside of the home. I am also a certified NRA training counselor. I continue to educate myself by taking training classes myself so that I am not teaching antiquated philosophies as the industry continues to evolve. I am proud to have trained over 4300 students. In addition, I am the NV State Leader for The Well Armed Woman and currently lead two chapters, The Battle Born Las Vegas and Henderson Chapters.
With strong brand name recognition and a great student following, my company has experienced exponential growth. I have aligned myself with additional instructors to teach some of my classes. I’ve also created fantastic business relationships with some great partners like CCW SAFE, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Breakthrough, Stealthgear, The Well Armed Woman, I.C.E. Training, Rocky Mountain Gun Shows and Bass Pro Shops to name a few.
One of my most distinguished accomplishments this year was to work with and train our great Marines at Camp Pendleton’s Edson Range in California as the first female non-military commissioned civilian instructor. I was so honored to have been invited to teach my flagship product ͞Combat Citizen Workshop͟, a multi-state conceal carry weapons course with additional defensive training range drills. Also requested was the NRA Range Safety Officer and Chief Range Safety Officer Certification Courses. I have conducted several similar large group courses, but none with the magnitude of honor and respect of a room full of Marines in their uniforms. It was an incredible honor and a life changing experience to serve those who serve our country in the position to protect our freedom. One of the highlights of our trip was being invited to bring additional training programs back to the base in the near future. I am honored to represent women on our homeland as a firearms instructor in a predominantly male field, teaching life-saving skills. I feel this work is important and a great contribution to society. It is a privilege to be chosen to share that knowledge with others while fostering strong support for our Second Amendment.
