Inspiring Conversations with Amber Edwards

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amber Edwards.

Hi Amber, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
It all started with my love and passion for my career as a criminal information technician I have been a criminal information technician for about nine years now, as this position allowed me to process background checks for Utah concealed carry permits.

I decided that I wanted to pursue a career as a Utah Concealed firearms instructor to help those with questions comments or concerns on their everyday carry journey, firearm, holster, or gear and for training or to help with anything to do with Utah law or the application process.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I have found that I am open and willing to learn and I feel like in every single course that I teach I am learning as well along with my students and that’s what makes me a great instructor because I am versatile in all conceal carry aspects and helping others feel comfortable with their concealed carry practices.

At the end of the day, you are going to be responsible for your firearm and how you train and that’s how I teach my students. You need to be comfortable and if you’re not comfortable with the firearm then you will most likely not conceal carry. During my courses, I hope you feel comfortable and confident with your carry practices before leaving my course.

I have found that HB- 60 has dramatically changed the number of people that want to have their concealed carry permit. In Utah, you are no longer required to obtain a concealed carry permit in order to conceal so that has been a change in my business but I am still here teaching about 10 -15 students a month on top of trying to post more on YouTube and trying to promote our bellyband line.

We’ve been impressed with Badass Concealed, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Badass Concealed offers a wide variety of courses to help you feel comfortable in your everyday concealed carry practices. I help you obtain your concealed carry permit in Utah with hands-on training as we go over training, mindset, and also the attitude of having a firearm on your person for self-defense purposes along with shooting fundamentals and much much more.

I also offer a basic pistol course along with obtaining your Utah concealed carry permit all in one course so if you do not feel comfortable with your firearm I highly suggest taking one of my courses so I can help you understand your firearm into hope you feel comfortable and confident with your carry practices.

Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
If you do not own a firearm I am here to help you with the guidelines of how to purchase how to feel comfortable and how to talk to your family about owning purchasing or having a firearm.

Everyone has to start somewhere and I am here for you. You are responsible for your own safety so start training today! If you have questions about eligibility please don’t hesitate to reach out.
