Hello! I am Tyronda Carr, Founder of It Ain't Over, LLC (IAO Firearms Training)  I am a United States Navy Veteran. I realized the necessity of possessing keen self defense &  situational awareness skills, however, I knew learning to avoid becoming a victim wasn't enough.  

 

As a woman I believed it was important to broaden my firearms training skills. I obtained my concealed carry permit and continued my firearms training by taking courses from local military trained firearms instructors, NRA Instructors, as well as USCCA Training Counselors. Since then I've trained many through the IAO Firearms Academy.

I've been blessed to open  the IAO Firearms Training  doors, the opportunity has helped individuals achieve confidence that they would be able to safely exercise their 2nd Amendment Rights. I'm committed to providing excellent education, training and resources so that each student will thrive safely in today’s world.
