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.


Cabela's Noblesville IN Grand Opening

The destination for all things outdoors and hunting, Cabela’s was welcomed with open arms to the Noblesville IN community. The week long Grand Opening Celebration was highlighted with booths from organizations like the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Friends Of The NRA, The Well Armed Woman, and SCI.

Shoot Like A Girl brought along their state of the art 50 foot trailer welcoming attendees inside to shoot rifle and pistol with the military grade simulation system that replicates 80% of true recoil, giving women a real life experience at shooting without firing a projectile. Women were also welcomed to try their prowess at archery shooting a variety of compound bows.

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation set up air rifles welcoming kids of all ages to take aim and practice some SAFE shooting (Shooting Access For Everyone). Hundreds of children took delight in testing out their marksmanship skills while learning about wildlife and habitat conservation.

The Safari Club International set up a 3D archery shoot for kids to enjoy in the delights of everything hunting from giant bull elk to dinosaurs.

The weekend was really fun for the entire family with door prizes for the first to enter the store and appearances from myself, Dan & Don Pickell, Olympic Gold Metalist Cory Cogdell and Cabela’s American Archer, Tom Nelson.

It was a dream come true for myself seeing the Kristy Titus Collection of fine jewelry, #InspiredByWildPlaces by Montana Silversmiths on display at the gift counter.

The 82,000sq.ft. Noblesville store featuring the mountain of big game and 6,000 gallon fish tank plus greatest outdoor shopping in the world, is going to be a big draw for the community and surrounding area.

North American Hunter- Teach Your Girl to Shoot Like A Girl

You love to hunt. You love to shoot. You love your girl. Maybe it’s time to put all that together.

Aim at the high mark and you will hit it. No, not the first time, not the second time and maybe not the third. But keep on aiming and keep on shooting for only practice will make you perfect. Finally, you'll hit the bull's-eye of success.
–Annie Oakley

Not every American woman has the sharp shooting prowess that led Annie Oakley to fame. In fact, many women are afraid to have a gun in the home, let alone shoot or train with one. Making the decision to own a firearm for personal protection, hunting or the shooting sports requires some homework.

But prior to gun ownership, let’s talk training.

The Blaze- SLAG Conceal on College Campus?

Women on college campuses should have the right to “take personal responsibility” for their own safety — and that means being able to arm themselves to defend against the threat of sexual assault and other crimes, according to Cristy Crawford, chief operations officer of Shoot Like A Girl.

Crawford and Karen Butler, founder and president of the company, agreed to sit down and talk guns with TheBlaze at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Nashville over the weekend. Neither were shy about sharing their pro-gun views, both endorsing law-abiding Americans’ “constitutional right” to carry a firearm anywhere they see fit — and they actually laughed when we asked a question based on a measure supported by anti-gun advocates.
