Shelby-safe. The Shelby name has such a history for me. My maternal grandfather, Daniel, was a fisherman, hunter and game warden. It has been such a strong name that held our family together through the many generations in Kentucky. In honor of that name, and in loving memory of my mother, Juanita Shelby Marshall, who married a soldier, who later became a police officer, I started Shelby-Safe.
As a policeman's daughter, we've had guns in our home since I was born, but it wasn't until I was at the age of 18, that I learned to shoot my first rifle and shotgun. Many (many) years later, after many moves and transfers, and finally to Florida, I purchased my own handgun for personal carry. After receiving training and instruction through various courses, and completing well-established instructor courses from the NRA and The Well-Armed Woman, I feel led to encourage and inspire other women to take a hold of their own safety and well-being.
And this is where we are today ~~ sharing my passion for helping other women stay safe. Sometimes that's aided by teaching women about purchasing and learning how to use a gun or other safety device. At all times, it's teaching women about being aware of your surroundings, what we call situational awareness, and knowing what to do if you're put in a position you don't want to be in. The Refuse to Be a Victim Course is excellent at this.
Knowledge is power and half the battle. Shelby-Safe (Safety For Everyone)
