By Sandy Kozero. As I crash into bed after my full day of hiking, my mind still hears the low rumble of the crowd and my thighs burn numb. I am glad that my friend convinced me to attend the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits.

A Girl & A Gun facilitators offer “mini-clinics” that cover the 5 Fundamentals of Accurate Shooting at most Girls’ Night Out (GNO) events. In the interest of safety, ladies who attend a GNO receive a whole lot of new information in a very short period of time. Once your facilitator sees that you are consistently safe with your gun handling, it’s her job to be available to answer questions and offer pointers to keep you safe. Your facilitator is a fantastic resource, but making the commitment to develop skills requires that you take three simple steps.

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!”
