Catching Up: #SWIN, #AmazingAmerica & I’m Moving!

Shooting a Pro Tip from "Mike's Blind" at the 2014 Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor Nationals.

It has been a crazy couple of months! In February I invited Katie Pavlich of to compete in the Smith & Wesson IDPA Indoor National Championships in Springfield, MA. For those of you who don’t know Katie, you may have seen her as a frequent contributor on Fox News. She is also the best selling author […]

Blast from the Past – Cleared for #USPSA #SafetyFirst #tbt


Throwback Thursday: My Start in USPSA This was such a milestone for me! For years I volunteered with my dad at the local clubs in upstate New York. From picking up brass and pasting targets to eventually becoming a certified range officer, I fell in love with the sport. On March 16, 1991 I completed […]

What a year! First off, to everyone who follows my shooting and this blog, I so appreciate your support! Even with taking a year off from the competition circuit to welcome a new little one to my family, I feel like I have been able to stay connected to the shooting world and it just […]

Munchkin’s letter to Santa

Munchkin at Christmas

This photo is from a few years ago and it’s one of my all time favorites. What a blessing it is to witness the magic of Christmas through the eyes of children! I just love reliving the excitement of my childhood through my little ones. Dear Santa, How are you doing? I love you. Can I please have […]

Never Forget – Pearl Harbor and the American Spirit

The Greatest Generation

When I think of today, I think back on the most defining moment in our nation’s history that I have personally witnessed, September 11, 2001. I wonder what it must have been like for my grandparents on this day 72 years ago. I remember vividly where I was when the Twin Towers fell. My grandparents […]


Happy Thanksgiving

I am thankful for… Family It’s one word that means so much. Between my parents and siblings, extended family and now the family I have of my own, I am one lucky woman. Being a daughter and sister has been pretty easy thanks to my mom and dad (love you guys). Being a mother? Now […]

Snapshot: Champion Shooter in the Making? #fasthands

Snapshot: #fasthands #feedtheyeti #babygirl #babylife

OK. So, I might be a “little” biased, but take a look at these fast hands! If my little yeti is that quick with a spoon, think of how blazing she could be on the draw, the lightning speed of her mag changes, the blur-wind (my word) of her stuffing shells into the Benelli… Hmm. […]

Blast from the Past #TBT – A Big Old Pile of Leaves

Fall leaves!

There’s really nothing quite like autumn in the northeast. From the brilliant crimsons, bright golds and flaming oranges (my fav) of leaves at their peak to the crisp smell after they have fallen, it’s one of things I miss most from living in New York. I remember hours of fun as a kid, raking them up, making […]

Elk Hunting with Munchkin & Yeti

Julie Golob Archery Elk Hunting in Montana with Prois

When I tell people we went elk hunting with our five-year old and five-month old I get the classic eyebrow raise with the question, “And how did that go for you?” Well… I was fortunate enough to draw a special permit elk tag this year. I am trying to make the most of every chance […]

My Little One’s First Shots

My Little One's First Shots

June 15th was National Take Your Daughter to the Range Day (NTYDTTRD), a movement to encourage women, young and old, to get out there and give shooting a try. Earlier this year I blogged about how my Munchkin received her first rifle for her birthday. After working with her on understanding firearm safety, we felt she […]
