Chad Francis offers 6 tips for dads of daughters competiting in shooting sports.
By Dani Durante. Over the years I talked a lot about wanting to try a shooting match, but I never took the time to look into signing up. With a career and then having children I put my interests on hold until I thought I would have time. After moving to Texas, I saw A Girl & A Gun signs and told David that I wanted to join and get into competitive shooting, but again I didn’t think my needs or wants were a priority over taking kids everywhere they needed to go or setting up those so important playdates. David bought me a membership in 2015 for my Christmas present. It was the best Christmas present a girl could get. Not only did it give me some quality time on the range, it also gave our family something to do together.

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!”
