Welcome to Lady Gets A Gun!  

Maureen Rogers  is originally from Hawaii where her first introduction to shooting sports was at the BB gun and archery range with her son at Cub Scout camp.  It wasn't until 20 years later however, after relocating to Oregon, that she was able to expand her piqued interest to extensive training at Front Sight Training Center and earn instructor certifications with the National Rifle Association in pistol, rifle, shotgun, home firearm safety, and chief range safety officer. 

With a background as a special education teacher for 35 years, Maureen's current specialty is not only to assist women to become more comfortable with firearms, but in some cases to also remediate fears and dismantle fallacies about firearms.  Maureen,  whose business is called "Lady Gets A Gun" has been instructing women since 2010.  She believes in "empowering women to be free" through improving skills in safe handling, mindset, maintenance, & markmanship with firearms.

Along with her classes  and private lessons, Maureen is associated with Redmond Rod & Gun Club as a Chief Range Safety Officer, is the Pistol and Rifle instructor at Ladies' Nites, and a Pistol Instructor for the Women On Target clinic.  She is also the Cub Scout Day Camp District Shooting Sports Director, running the BB Gun and Archery ranges and Eddie Eagle learning station. 

Finally, Maureen and husband Norman, also instruct coed firearms classes.  She feels very blessed with the opportunity to share her skills and knowledge with you.
