My name is Desstoni Johnson, owner of FAB Firearms Academy, a firearms instruction school in Central Arkansas founded with women in mind.
As a survivor of needless gun violence myself and with first-hand knowledge of how off-putting the firearms industry can be for women, I birthed FAB Firearms Academy to provide a relatable, safe and supportive environment for women to learn practical skills to defend themselves in real-life situations. Our experienced instructors teach techniques that are easy to remember and apply, empowering women to exercise their rights and feel confident in their ability to protect themselves and their loved ones if ever necessary.

Our women-led group classes provide a safe and empowering environment for students to learn essential firearms safety and self-defense skills.
All group classes are co-ed unless otherwise specified in the course description. No experience is needed for most classes - we're actually always honored to be someone's first introduction to firearms! Click below to view upcoming classes.
Our private classes provide the same level of education and training as our group options, but in an environment that offers more individualized attention and personalized instruction. Private lessons are a great way to build your confidence before attending group classes, or to continue improving upon your skillset after a class.
Our children aren't around us every waking moment of the day, so it's imperative that we make sure they know what to do (and what not to do) should they ever encounter a firearm when you aren't around.
We offer safe and engaging firearms safety training for youth ages 12*-17 and their parents. The lessons focus on practical ways to minimize the liability of having firearms in a home with children, as well as educating the child on the potential dangers of firearms, and the importance of respecting them for what they are.
