SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Are you interested in learning more about shooting sports? Smith & Wesson Shooting Sports Center and Retail Store is hosting a book signing for the newly released book, Shoot: Your Guide to Shooting and Competition by Julie Golob.
Competitors attending the Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championships and the public will have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of the author, Julie Golob, a multi-national and world champion shooter who is also the captain of Smith & Wesson’s highly successful shooting team.
Copies of Shoot will be available for purchase at the Shooting Sports center located at 299 Page Blvd. in Springfield, Mass. Julie will be on hand to sign books on Friday, February 24th from 4:30pm to 6:00pm.
In addition to the book signing, Julie will also be competing in the Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals, a twelve stage event that will challenge some of the best shooters in the world on their skills in one of two International Defensive Pistol Association national championships.
