From The Editor May/June



Ah, spring. Rebirth. Renewal. Warmer temperatures and all the activities that come with summer. As a mom, I am thrilled to be approaching the end of another successful school year with my kids. I’m also looking forward to attending the NRA Annual Meetings at the end of May, meeting and talking to more women professionals in the firearms industry whom you, the reader, may find of interest in upcoming issues. Our publication is constantly evolving and changing, undergoing it’s own rebirth as we try different things and broach different topics that we hope will provide you with informative and entertaining content.

In this issue, I am thrilled to bring you a cover feature on the incredible Gabby Franco, as well as a feature on Ashley Rheuark, whom at just 18 is taking the competitive circuit by storm. You’ll also meet two more members of the USA Shooting Olympic team, get some fitness tips to help get your body beach-ready, and find information on self-defense. Be sure to check out the story on being a “Newbie on the Range” and the page that highlights our Favorite Things for products that are innovative, versatile, and fun.

I invite you to visit our new website where you can search our database for topics of interest and past articles, and  visit us on FB and Instagram! Send us your pictures of The American Woman Shooters in your lives!

Thank you, as always, for your continued patronage and support.
