Jodi Rentzel - Instructor
I graduated from CSU Sacramento, thinking that I would continue on into the world of teaching. My direction for teaching has shifted - from working within the context of the schools to working with those who want to learn about firearms. I find myself in a most fortunate position to follow my passion for teaching in a field that I enjoy - firearms! I am now an NRA and TWAW (The Well Armed Women) Certified Instructor as well as a Co-Leader of the TWAW Sacramento chapter.
My main focus as an instructor is Basic Pistol & Marksmanship, Intermediate, Personal Protection in the home, Concealed Carry Weapons-Range Review, as well as 1:1, women only, and private small group classes.
Each class includes classroom time, more so than others, but you spend a good amount of time in the range applying and practicing the new concepts you just learned. Shooting is a discipline that requires patience and focus.
It is my goal to help shooters, both new and experienced, feel confident in their skills, to increase their knowledge, and to be, above all, safe in their gun handling. I look forward to working with you!
