Rolla, MO — Oct. 18, 2012 — (Women’s Outdoor News) – We are celebrating the launch on Thurs., Oct. 18, of another means of sharing news, reviews and stories about women hunting, shooting, fishing, kayaking, hiking and cooking in the outdoors on YouTube. Our debut video on YouTube features pro shooter Julie Golob’s first shot ever with a .50 cal. Barbara Baird, publisher of Women’s Outdoor news, captured the moment when Team Smith & Wesson’s Captain Golob pulled the trigger and felt the recoil of a Serbu .50 cal while participating in the first annual Girls Gun Getaway in rural Missouri last June. Look for future videos from Baird and from Associate Editor Britney Starr, as well as gear reviews from The WON’s writers.
To sweeten the launch of our video connection, Athena Means of Gun Goddess created a .50-cal.-theme giveaway package.
1. 50 cal rosette necklace with a crystal color of your choice
2. .50-cal bottle opener
3. Gun Goddess decal
4. $25 gift certificate
5. And saving the best for last … a signed book of Shoot: Your guide to shooting and competition, by that aforementioned .50 cal shooter Julie Golob!
