Shoot Like A Girl – Media Day 2014
From the 2014 Shot Show in Las Vegas, Nevada:
I experienced first hand the Shoot Like A Girl trailer at Media Day 2014. I had never fired a compound bow and Christy Crawford was there to tell me all about it and give me some instruction on shooting one! It took only about 15 minutes to step into their trailer, and take that first shot.
Established in 2008, their first 5 years was focused on archery and in December 2013 they added the Firearms Test Shots program. They have a state of the art 52 foot trailer where women can shoot a 9mm pistol, a .223 rifle and compound bows in a safe controlled environment. The trailer is also wheelchair accessible and allows people with physical challenges to experience the shooting sports. During the 2013 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo here in Las Vegas nearly 900 women went through the Shoot Like A Girl trailer!
Future events for Shoot Like A Girl include the World Deer and Turkey Expo in Birmingham, AL; Field and Stream Expo in Louisville, KY; Buckmasters in Mobile, AL; and Hunter/Cowboy Christmas in Las Vegas, NV.
