I'm Ayvrie Dixon, owner and instructor at Dixon Firearms Training. I believe, first and foremost, that firearm ownership comes with a high level of responsibility. If you take owning and carrying a gun seriously, there is no substitute for professional training. 

I love working with beginners, especially women, who are timid and nervous about shooting guns. That's why I joined The Well Armed Woman, a national shooting organization for women. I want to help the retail gun industry realize the importance of creating guns and accessories that empower women to feel proud and confident as they train and carry.

My experience shooting comes from growing up in Texas. I was born in Canadian but grew up in College Station. I am a Fightin' Texas Aggie class of 2001 - Whoop! My husband also graduated from TAMU - class of 2000. We moved to Amarillo in 2008 when my husband was transferred with his job. In 2009 we decided to give the bonding business a try. We now own Bargain Bail Bonds and Dixon Bail Bonds, which is why my classes are held inside that office. 

My most proud job is being a wife and a mom! My kids are the most precious piece of my life! They embrace our businesses with kind hearts and love being a part of the legacy we are building for them. My children have been trained in the safety aspect of guns their whole lives. They spend time on the range with us and I hope they will choose to be avid shooters one day! 

My kids are the reason I provide affordable safety classes for kids. If you have guns in your home, your children need to understand how to be safe around them.

Don't skip on the importance of gun safety; not for yourself, and especially not for your children. As part of being a responsible gun owner, spare no expense (whether time or money) to know the law and train constantly.
