Topic: Designing Women, Emily Houston Monroe
It started as sibling rivalry and grew into a lifelong passion. Target shooting is at the core of Emily Houston Monroe’s past, present, and future. A decorated junior and collegiate rifle shooter, Emily now works as an engineer at a leading firearms manufacturer – aka Sturm, Ruger & Company – where she can bring her passion for firearms to a new level. In her blog, The “How-To” Gun Girl, at Women’s Outdoor News, she shares her experiences in various shooting sports. From targets to turkeys. From smallbore rifle up to .338 Lapua Magnum. From 10 meters to 1600 yards. Find out more about Emily in this revealing interview.
