In this week’s show, firearms trainer Stacy Bright steps in to substitute for Carrie Lightfoot, and talks to the show’s other host, Barbara Baird, about what women want on the range – in regard to training, attitude and gear. The pair also discuss trending news in the firearms world, and talk about cool products and upcoming events. Sponsored by Ruger.
Stacy announces a new type of class, taught in Springfield, Mo., and called “The Armed Citizen”: http://www.mattcanovi.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=185&Itemid=195
Stacy explains that women want to be treated like men, as far as respect and concern for knowledge levels, when they go to ranges or to gun stores.
Here are some tips that she gives:
