Who or what got you into shooting?:
The current administration's attack on my rights re-involved me. I shot pistols and bb guns as a child.

Do you shoot handguns, shotguns, rifles or all of the above?:
Currently only handguns

Why are you involved with the NRA or how do you support their efforts?:

I like having my small voice heard as part of a chorus. I started NRA moms on Facebook.

Tell us about the first gun you owned or your favorite gun.:
My favorite weapon currently is a Beretta Nano 9mm. I like that it is customizable, has a long trigger pull for safety and is small enough to carry anywhere.

What's your favorite shooting range or place to hunt?:
Targetmaster in Pennsylvania

What's your best or most memorable moment as it relates to firearms?:
When my Dad taught me about the power of a Colt 45 as a young girl. I shot the ceiling and flew backwards despite the warnings and preparation. :)

I own a gun because:
I care about my children and want to be able to fully protect them.

Tell us the best (or worst) gun advice you've ever been given.:
The best advice was don't buy a gun unless you are willing to kill someone.

What's your favorite holiday? Why?:
Fourth of July - It's my birthday!
