Renee Gagne

Renee Gagne is an Operating Room Registered Nurse, 2A Advocate, Certified Pistol Instructor, and Range Safety Officer.

When I first became a single mom, I felt it important that I learn how to shoot. I was one of few women at the range, and I felt uncomfortable and unsupported. I never wanted another woman to ever feel the way I felt so together with Kerrie Ann Auclair, MA State Director, we started the only Armed Women of America chapter in MA. It has grown exponentially since the day we started. When Iā€™m not assisting women on the range, I am an operating room nurse and a mama of two kiddos that also love to shoot. Being a pistol instructor and Range Safety Officer has allowed me to help so many men and women achieve their firearm goals. I strongly believe that education IS the key to safety!
