While most Armed & Fabulous stories focus on women committed to fostering growth in the shooting sports, Katie Francis is the direct result of their lifelong efforts.
She's one of the youngest female shooters in the history of multi-gun events, and an inspiration to thousands of other young girls all over America. More importantly, firearms safety matters more to her than winning.
But that's not to say she doesn’t do plenty of the latter! At the Rockcastle Pro Am 3-Gun Championship, she joined members of Team Benelli to win prize money that was to be split 50-50 between the winners and the Task Force Dagger Foundation. When her older team members chose to give their winnings to her, Katie promptly turned and gave it all to the Foundation.
Katie Francis is every parent's dream: confident, capable, strong, passionate … and an accomplished competitive shooter.
