Family Range Time: Crayons, Pasters, and Competitions

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.

Anniston Baluyot – Not Your Typical Teenager

Anniston, a remarkable teen, has some sage advice for women shooters. “Don’t be intimidated by the guys and competing with them. I can see now that I can hang with the top guys and be competitive. Don’t get discouraged, there’s always room for improvement. Even if there is something they are doing and it doesn’t work for you, keep trying. You will find something that works for you.”
