Forest City is the oldest, continuously running gun club in the country and they are very proud of that fact and it's a beautiful and well run club.  

There is an impressive clubhouse with bar, clean bathrooms and plenty of comfortable seating and a big screen TV to catch all the other sports going on.  A nice outdoor patio that overlooks ...

Book review: Shoot! Your Guide to Shooting and Competition by Julie Golob Julie Golob is one of the most recognisable female target shooters in the world today, and with more than 20 years experience in competitive shooting, she has a lot of helpful information to share with those starting out in the sport. For me, taking up shooting as an adult, Julie was one of the first personalities on my radar. I've always admired her open and welcoming demeanour, and the endless enthusiasm she has for her chosen sport.

This book is principally targeted (hehe) at ...

Feeling sore after a day at the range? Try these stretch-and-release exercises! If you're like me, you can't wait to get out to the range each week! But after a long day of shooting, my body sometimes starts to complain a little, and I imagine I'm not the only one! So I thought I'd share the post-range stretch-and-release routine that I use, to help speed the recovery of tired limbs.

 

First, a word about fascia

The tightness you feel in your muscles after a long day of activity is often due to fascial adhesions. Fascia is the silvery-white connective tissue that ...

1.  Sunscreen - I like the spray on type as it doesn't get my hands all sticky.  I do include face coverage too in a higher SPF in a cream.

2.  Bugspray - we are outdoors and ususally flying bugs around that want to suck your blood.  I love the cornstarch based spray - great protection and ...

DIVA W.O.W. (Women Outdoors Worldwide) I joined the "Texas DIVAS" in 1999 when there were only 50 of us.  What a great connection to find all these great women who loved to shoot!

Fast forward 16 years and there are hundreds of ladies shooting and they are now DIVA W.O.W. with the WOW standing for Women Outdoors Worldwide.  Founded by Judy Rhodes, she's been the driving force of this organization since the beginning.  Penni Nelson is their current President.

One of my favorite things about the DIVAS is their spring and fall ...

My answer to that is always going to be a YES!

One of the favorite sayings in Texas is “If you don’t like the weather, just wait 20 minutes, it will change.  There have been so many times in my last 12 years of shooting sporting clays that I was very grateful that I had my rain gear!  I try to live by the mantra of “better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it...and I know the local sporting goods stores are more than welcome to take your money when the weather changes ...

Am I wearing the right shoes for this? It's the age old question...what do I wear?  

And when it comes to hunting and shooting, that questions becomes even more complicated!  So I thought I would start a series and get some tips from the ladies in the shooting, hunting and sporting world.

Let's start with footwear...

First and foremost, dress for the weather!  In some situations, style over function may seem like a good idea, but if you look good, but are totally miserable, then it takes away from the whole experience.  That ...

The Annie Oakleys (Atlanta) I'm involved in a ladies shooting group in the Atlanta area called the Annie Oakleys.  We meet on the second Monday of each month, for shooting with friends, with or without instruction and lunch after.  We have been doing this for about 11 years, and hold a tournament each Fall which benefits the Trust for Public Land.  This has developed solid friendships and confidence in gun handling skills, as well as being a template for other ladies shooting groups in the country.  I am a founding ...

Maiden Journey into Sporting Clays I was a reluctant shooter...having shot my first gun as a part of a wedding gift from a friend of my husband's.  Obviously, it was an gift for my sporting-clays-anything-that-flies-dies-there's-never-enough-shooting-in-life kind of husband.  But twelve years later, today, March 5, 2015 was the first day of my very first registered Sporting Clays shoot...at the Seminole Cup at Broadfield Hunting Club and as my GRITS (Girls Really InTo Shooting) group would say, WOOHOO!  So to any ladies who ...

Quail Creek Plantation, Okeechobee, FL Heading to Quail Creek Plantation in Okeechobee, FL this weekend for the 2015 Gator Cup (Sporting Clays).   Fred Fanizzi, staff and crew always give us the warmest reception.  The grounds are immaculate and they even have bathrooms out on the range that have running water!!  A must for the ladies but I suspect that the men really appreciate them also!  While I have only shot Sporting Clays here, they do have quail, turkey and pheasant hunting available.  Be sure to check them out if you're ...
