League City Celebrates

The League City, TX, chapter had over 30 ladies attend their annual holiday party. The photos shows the expressions of fun and concentration as they were putting their strings of lights in their Christmas tree targets.

She could not have predicted that the sport of 3-gun would one day help her survive an officer-involved shooting.
