It’s been a while since I have posted some link love. Between travel, shooting and work I have been swamped. My inbox is officially scarier than this. I am not complaining though! As I like to say, busy is always better than bored. So without further delay, here’s my attempt to catch up on some link lovin’.
May 2012 went down as one of the best shooting months of my career. It all started out with a trip to PASA Park in Barry, IL for the Single Stack Nationals. A second place finish to Sara Dunivin at the USPSA Area 1 Championships in St. George, UT just prior to the nationals had me hungry. I shot well and was able to bring home my 13th USPSA Ladies National Title. A few fun of links to share from the match…
Speaking of Single Stack, it was at that event I decided to share my experiences with On the Road Updates on my You-Tube channel. It’s been fun and with all the responses I have received in comments and messages, I plan on doing more of them.
National Take Your Daughter to the Range Day was June 9th!
I just love all the mainstream attention women and guns have been getting this year. Between the rise in women carrying concealed to events like National Take Your Daughter to the Range Day (NTYDTTRD), it’s a good time to be fabulously female with a firearm! Leading up to NTYDTTRD there was definitely a lot of buzz. Here’s a great interview with Natalie from Girls Guide to Guns and the program’s founder, Lynne Finch. The first NTYDTTRD was on June 9th and the NRA Range in Fairfax, VA was one of the hosts. Read more about how it went here.
Team Smith & Wesson tore it up at this year’s ICORE International Revolver Championships. I was bummed that I couldn’t make it but trust me, the team had it covered! A very special congratulations goes out to Jerry Miculek on his 20th IRC win. Talk about domination!!! I am so proud of all my teammates and the write up that Paul Erhardt shared in The Shooting Wire’s Between the Berms.
Two fun interviews I want to share that feature my book, SHOOT, are from Shooting USA and GunZoo.com. I so enjoyed sitting down with Craig Lamb while I was in town filming for Shooting USA’s Impossible Shots. If you haven’t had a chance to check out GunZoo.com please do. The site not only offers up interviews like mine, you can also set up your own gun vault and connect with fellow shooters.
I admit, I was pretty darn happy with my USPSA Single Stack win earlier in May. With just about a week of action pistol training prior to the NRA Bianchi Cup, my goal for this year’s Cup was to simply give it the best I could and represent my sponsors well. So when I found out my efforts were good enough to win the Ladies Title, I was ecstatic! Sharing the victory with my teammate and Bianchi guru Doug Koenig was the cherry on top! Here are some links:
