Welcome to FAB Firearms Academy, where our mission is to create a safe and comfortable learning environment in which women can thrive and gain the knowledge needed to protect and defend themselves.
My name is Desstoni Johnson, owner of FAB Firearms Academy, a firearms instruction school in Central Arkansas founded with women in mind. I was inspired to start this company after being a victim of gun violence myself. It was a traumatic experience that made me realize the importance of actually being equipped to protect yourself in an emergency. I wanted to do what I could to ensure that no one feels vulnerable or helpless in the face of imminent danger the way I did.
One of the things that sets FAB Firearms Academy apart is our tailor-made approach to firearms training. We believe that women have their own set of concerns in this world, and our training reflects that. By creating a space where women feel understood and supported, we foster a learning environment that promotes growth and confidence.
Since our inception in 2020, we have trained over 1,000 women, a milestone that we are incredibly proud of. Seeing the transformative impact of our training on the lives of our students fuels our passion and drives us to continue making a difference!
