Za-Neta Mossberg

Instructor

Certification Status - ACTIVE


About Me: I grew up in Wisconsin and moved to MN as a kid. I was never really big into firearms until I became a parent. My husband served in the military and was gone a lot for training and the fears of something happening to me or my children when he was away got to me. I then became a permit holder to better train myself in shooting and self defense in the event that I ever needed to use deadly force. I became an instructor for permit to carry courses in order to encourage more women to carry a firearm and be confident in both carrying and proficient in shooting. I love to teach Women's Permit to carry classes and my favorite gun is a Glock 43.
