When asked her favorite aspect of being a part of A Girl & A Gun, Coni says, “The sisterhood I feel with the facilitators and members is truly extraordinary. I know I can count on any of them to have my back wherever I go and the support and encouragement from each of them is so heartwarming. I love that A Girl & A Gun is always thinking outside the box and ready with new challenges and adventures for the members.”
Coni has been in the firearms industry for 45 years. She long with her husband built a bullet manufacturing company, Barnes Bullets. The infamous all-copper X-Bullet designed by her husband Randy was a big contributor to their successful business. They sold the business to Remington Outdoor Company in 2010 and worked for the new owners for 5 years before retiring.

She has taken many courses in pistol, 3-Gun, Shotgun, and long range rifle from some of the best in the industry and attends many of the trainings offered by AG & AG.
In addition to her success with Barnes, Coni pauses reflectively when asked about her most notable professional achievement. She says, “The joy I feel when I see ladies excel and compete is indescribable, and the accomplishments I have made since joining AG & AG are sometimes hard for me to comprehend. I am so thankful for this organization. I don’t know what I would be doing without it in my life.”
