NRA News- I Am Forever- A Storm Will Come

Without experiencing difficulty and pain, how would we know to appreciate the blessings we enjoy? In Episode 6, "A Storm Will Come," the women's patience and perseverance are tested like never before. As difficult as solo daytime navigation was, navigation at night is an entirely different challenge. Meanwhile, Nick remembers a time when he was tested—caught in a wild storm at sea with a broken motor, he manned the ship for 31 straight hours, practically willing it to shore.

In Episode 3, "Streets Paved With Gold," Nick recounts the stories he'd heard as a Greek child about America's limitless riches: the streets, they said, were paved with gold, and all you had to do was reach down and pick it up! Upon realizing the truth, Nick broke out into tears—"They lied to us, mom," he cried. But now, he says, "It wasn’t a lie at all." There is gold in our streets, after all: opportunity.

Kristy Titus to Instruct New Shooters at Shoot Like A Girl- Hunter Christmas

Kristy Titus, NRA Certified Instructor and Cabela’s Ambassador, is assisting new shooters at the Shoot Like a Girl booth (#110) during the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation's Elk Camp and Hunter Christmas December 3rd-12th at The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). Titus will be helping shooters at SLG’ state of the art 52’ trailer where the team of NRA Certified Instructors will provide new shooters with a controlled, safe, and fun environment where they can experience shooting sports within a short amount of time. Women are invited to come and shoot pistol and rifle with the military grade simulation system that utilizes real firearms that replicate 80% of true recoil in addition to drawing back a compound bow.

“Helping women discover or rediscover shooting sports is my goal. In order to ensure a bright future for our hunting heritage or simply for the fun of shooting sports, we must involve women. Women are key in changing the discussions concerning gun control, learning the safe handling and use of firearms is key to protecting our Second Amendment,” said Titus. “With women being the fastest growing segment in the outdoors, I expect the Shoot Like a Girl trailer to be very busy during the Hunter Christmas expo!” 

Titus will be at the Shoot Like a Girl booth (#110) at the following dates and times:

December 7 from 9:00AM-4:00PM

December 9 from 9:00AM-4:00PM 

Shoot Like A Girl has a simple mission: to grow the number of women who participate in shooting sports by empowering them with confidence. Since the company was founded in 2008 it has and continues to achieve that goal, through Test Flights™, seminars and information sharing via social media and http://shootlikeagirl.com 

The founder and president of the company, Karen Butler, realized that although women are the fastest growing demographic in shooting sports, there were still factors that limited their involvement. Primarily, the opportunity for women to try equipment that fits in a safe and controlled environment. Shoot Like A Girl, with the help of their valued corporate sponsors, travels the country with archery equipment in weights and lengths for women to try at their Test Flights™. They go to events where there are a lot of women spectators, but not necessarily a lot of participants, like hunting shows, conservation shows and shooting sports tournaments. 

Elk Camp coincides with the first four days of the National Finals Rodeo. Sponsors include Browning, Buck Knives, Cabela's, Hunter's Specialties, Leupold, Nationwide, New Holland, Nosler, Peak & BlueDEF, Sitka, Realtree, Remington and U.S. Bank. 

Terri Clark, Tracy Lawrence, Craig Morgan, Chuck Wicks and Mark Wills will provide entertainment at Elk Camp evening events at The Mirage. Wicks and Wills will join fellow country music performing artists Chad Bushnell, Lucas Hoge, Erin Michelle, Jay Ketchem and Genevieve Allen on the Cabela's Live Stage (Booth #1220) located on the floor of the newly expanded Hunter & Outdoor Christmas Exposition. 

The expo will take place in the South Halls of the LVCC in conjunction with the Popular Cowboy Christmas Dec. 3-12. Expo sponsors include Cabela's, Chevrolet, Yamaha, Alps Outdoorz and Peak & BlueDEF.


NRA News- I Am Forever- A Better Life In America

I Am Forever is the story of the American dream, told from three perspectives.

Episode 2, "A Better Life in America," contrasts Nick's bleak existence as a child in Nazi-occupied Greece with the comfortable state of 21st-century American life. Meanwhile, Kristy, Jessi and Faith complete their first day in the wild.

NRA News- I Am Forever

Just after the Founding Fathers finalized the Constitution, Ben Franklin stepped outside Independence Hall, where he was met by an intensely interested crowd. When a woman asked, “Well, doctor, what have we got—a republic or a monarchy?” Franklin famously replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

His point, of course, was that freedom’s great danger is that free individuals can use their freedom in ways that destroy it. Freedom’s survival in America depends upon the decisions of individuals, not the edicts of a government.

There is no point in time where freedom will ever be secure. The battle will rage forever, and every generation is enlisted to fight.

You’ll see this story play out all season on I Am Forever through three distinct parts:

The Past

Born in Greece on the eve of the Nazi occupation, Nick was able to come to America after the war because his mother was an American citizen. Driven by the tragedy, starvation and destruction he left behind, he seized every opportunity America had to offer.

The Present

Over the course of this season, a group of commentators will attack the soft underbelly of American culture, and how so many of the decisions we are making are contrary to freedom's survival.

The Future

Kristy Titus invites two women, Jessi and Faith, on a 25-mile backcountry adventure in order to reflect upon the values that keep us free, how they will live out those values, and how they will spread them in their families and communities.

 

NRA Tips & Tactics- Using A Bipod Afield

The supply of additional firearm accessories seems endless, so how do you choose which additions are necessary? In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus makes her case for why your rifle needs a bipod—especially if you plan to go afield. Though it's another gear addition to your rifle, a bipod is a tool that can be utilized on a hunt to help you make an accurate shot when it counts the most. Gabby Franco agrees that bipods are a worthwhile investment even if you don't plan to go in the field.

NRA Tips & Tactics- Natural Point Of Aim

Finding your natural point of aim (NPA) is one of the most important aspects of downrange accuracy. The goal of NPA is to eliminate muscular tension that can affect your downrange accuacy. In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus explains the process of testing your natural point of aim with a rifle, and Gabby Franco follows up to explain that the same can be done when shooting a pistol.


NRA Tips & Tactics- Sight Picture

In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus explains how having a clear sight picture is essential to making precise and accurate shots. When shooting with a rifle, a scope is a great tool that can help shooters see a sight picture that would otherwise be faraway, near and clear. However, taking a shot with the wrong sight picture in your scope will end up hurting your shot outcome. 

NRA Women Tips & Tactics- Bolt Action Rifle Fit

Tips & Tactics Sponsored by Cabela’s Outdoor Fund

No matter the type of firearm you're handling, fit is key. There is no "one size" fits all gun, and for that reason it may be necessary to make some adjustments to your gun to make it the best fit for you. In this episode of Tips & Tactics, sponsored by Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Kristy Titus hones in on important aspects to look for when choosing a bolt-action rifle and a few add-ons you might consider to improve its fit for you.
