Last September I had another fabulous opportunity to take the Ladyseed Marksmanship Clinic offered by Project Appleseed in my hometown of San Antonio. Since I took my first class two years prior and missed the previous year due to a work commitment, I was ecstatic to make another attempt at earning the coveted rifleman’s patch. […]
Dave Miller, Shotgun Manager of CZ-USA and frequent guest on Gun Dog TV, invited Julianna Crowder and me to be a part of a televised hunt. We joined the group in Greensburg, Kansas, on a cold and windy weekend. I wasn’t sure what to expect, and came away with a lot of wonderful memories and lessons learned.
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. They had their traditional “Ugly Sweater Contest” that the ladies voted on, and Facilitator Cindy Scott supplied a lot of prizes to give away! They had a volunteer gift exchange that was a big hit, and almost everyone in attendance gathered for dinner. They also celebrated their A-Team, who all recently became NRA Certified Instructors and NRA Chief Range Safety Officers!
Since sharing my home-invasion story in 2016, I’ve been wanting to write a follow up. Today just seems like a great day to start. As you may know our journey began (and almost ended) the morning of 1 March 2014, when we had a home invasion with assault at 0320 while we were both sleeping.

DeeAnn shares her story: I was able to firmly plant myself at the far side of the dining room. I met him with a loaded gun as he rounded the corner from the stairs and came towards me.
The North and South Austin chapters of A Girl & A Gun were fortunate to get to tour the STI handgun factory on a recent Friday in June. There were approximately 22 AG & AG members in attendance. Dustin Tackett, a regional sales manager for STI, led us on the tour.
Tiffany Overland offers advice that she learned through her journey of supporting her daughter’s competitive shooting career.
I did it. I joined the gym. I can compare every experience of walking into a gym as someone might feel walking into the gun range.
Although she is a deputy with the Boulder County (CO) Sheriff’s Office and a member of A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG), Teri Javes would not describe herself as a firearms enthusiast. She enjoys competition and began shooting 3-gun matches in 2014 with her husband and oldest daughter. She could not have predicted that the sport of 3-gun would one day help her survive an officer-involved shooting.
Recently AG & AG Member Marlene Lagerquist toured the STI factory in Georgetown, TX. She was able to witness the entire manufacturing process from raw steel bars to the beautiful finished product.
