Michelle Pickett Encourages Women to Be Adventurous

Often times when talking with women about joining AG & AG, Pickett says women will respond, “I’m not sure, I’m not good with big groups of women.” That’s understandable as so many women remember the “mean girls” from high school. “But I tell them, “It’s not what you think, it’s very different.” When we get together, everyone is on the same playing field. You’re as good as the person next to you. Even the pro shooters are sweet and gracious to everyone.” “Just try it. Jump in with both feet and try it,” advises Pickett. “Be adventurous. It will make a world of difference in your life, emotionally and personally. It’s amazing.”

Team Troy’s Ursula Williams Says Jump in and Have Fun at Fall Fest

Ursula has advice for shooters attending Brownells Multigun Fall Fest, especially first time competitors. “Don’t be scared, everybody there is there to help regardless of a jersey or not. Don’t think you can’t talk to the women wearing jerseys,” she laughs. “And watch the women not wearing jerseys, they can be kicking butt just as much. A Girl & A Gun brings in a lot of new women shooters. It’s the most welcoming group. So don’t be scared to try anything and just listen and learn. Ask questions. Some of the best knowledge I’ve gathered has been at their events. And then just have fun!”
