Who or what got you into shooting?

Owning my own business created the situation for me to be out late at night with cash on me and opened opportunities for the bad guys. My husband took me out shooting and that was about 17 years ago. He doesn't shoot any longer but he has created a monster in me.


First or favorite gun?

Favorite pistol would be my Glock 19 for competition, Ruger LCP 380 for concealment, and shotgun, my dad gave me a 16 Gauge Ithaca he bought for himself when he was 16.

Laser on my Ruger
