Do you lack experience with a gun? Look no further than Martin County Firearms Academy!

Personal Message

Hey everyone, my name is Katherine Bell. 

In 2010 crime was on the increase in our area. There were armed robberies, home invasions, and carjackings. I worked in a job where I had to carry money at night so I took the concealed carry class, passed, and got my permit. Still, I had only shot a gun once to qualify for my permit. I didn't feel confident enough to carry my pistol until I discovered The Well Armed Woman (TWAW) organization and began training with other women. The rest, as they say, is history.


Training became a passion. I had individual instruction, I took NRA courses, and went through the Winchester Marksmenship Program; I even trained with a retired Navy Seal and became an NRA Certified Instructor. I also became a Certified Well Armed Woman Instructor. Needless to say that I love shooting. It is serious business, but it's also empowering and fun!


I also love teaching and became the Chapter Leader of the Rocky Mt NC Chapter of The Well Armed in 2015 and founded the Williamston Chapter in 2017.


After my retirement in 2015 I founded        Martin County Firearms Academy, LLC to help women, and men too, learn to safely and confidently use and carry their handguns.


Martin County Firearms Academy is a small company committed to serving Martin and surrounding counties with the best in personal and group handgun training.



MCFA welcomes Phylle Foxwell, NRA Certified Range Safety Officer to assist in keeping the range safe and to help new shooters.
