Randi wasn't able to join us this week, but Julie invited the talented and beautiful Maggie Reese for a fun "girl talk" episode gun girl style. Maggie is a two time 3-Gun Ladies National Champion as well as a season two contestant on the hit show History Channel's Top Shot. Main Topic Interview:
- Maggie's journey from new shooter to national champion.
- Dealing with injuries as a competition shooter.
- Picking and choosing matches and shooting sports.
- Shooting and competing with other women.
- Top Shot talk
- Maggie's secrets to having fun and looking great on the range.
Jenny: Hi ladies! I just listened to your show on USPSA competitions and I may just have to start doing them! My husband has tried for quite a while to get me into shooting, but beyond the occasional practice at the range, I just haven't. BUT, I do believe I need more practice with the gun that I'd be using for self defense and this may be the way to do it. Thanks for convincing me :-) NOW to only convince my husband to stay home with the 3 kids 3 and under while I do this. Maybe you can help in that area! (Jake-yes the Jake with you on air now, would be my husband :-) and has no idea that I've written to you!)
Dan: I am writing to inquire what time I can hear Gun Girl Radio on the air? Is it available as a podcast? Any information you could provide would be most helpful. As I live in the eastern time zone I may be somewhat ahead of you all.
Jill: Hi we just found your radio program from gun guys podcasts! Enjoyed hearing women with a voice in a man's world. I'm new to shooting but my husband is not . We have been visiting a lot of websites and you tube video's so I'm hearing more about a world I'm just getting into. I have been doing archery and love doing the leagues in the winter time. This is a world I'm a little more comfortable in. My question to you is what does a girl do when all around it's a man's game, so many particulars and verbage that is hard to grasp. I will learn more as I go...(take some time) Is there any outlets for just a girls arena?
J Man: I am wanting to get my wife more interested in shooting for self defense. What can you recommend for her to start with as far as a type of handgun and caliber to get her use to shooting? Thanks.
