Abigail Summar is a mother and musician who also happens to love guns. A concealed carrier for many years, she earned her NRA Certified Instructor ratings and NRA Chief Range Safety Officer certificate from Carl Hirt, Jr. of Hirt's Defensive Solutions, her Rangemaster Certified Instructor rating from Tom and Lynn Givens of Rangemaster, and her USCCA Certified Instructor rating from Christa Forrester of Confident Carry Firearms Instruction. She has also taken extensive private instruction from Mike Benedict of Talon Tactical, Brian Hill of The Complete Combatant, and John Lovell of Warrior Poet Society. Abigail currently works as a POST-certified law enforcement officer in the Metro Atlanta area.
