Babbs in the Woods
They are petite, but powerful. Randi Rogers and Tori Nonaka, athletes on Team GLOCK, took a few minutes to talk to me at the SHOT Show last January, and in particular about the Gen4. While neither of the women is presently competing with the Gen 4, because of lack of aftermarket add-ons to the gun, they hope to be competing with this model next year.
Said Randi, “Women should flock to GLOCK because they’re so easy to use. A lot of women, who haven’t had experience shooting, they don’t have to worry about safeties, decockers … you just take it out of the box and it’s ready to go.” And that leads to confidence building in the shooting sports, said Randi.
Randi and Tori are competing from Feb. 23 through 25 at the Smith & Wesson 2012 IDPA Indoor National Championships in Springfield, Mass.
I thought you’d like to hear Tori Nonaka’s interview. Granted, there is some background noise on the floor of the show, but she sounds strong and confident and fields questions with the ease of someone more mature. You might be surprised when she reveals who is coming up in the ranks of young competitors, too.
