The first show is set to release on Fri., May 20, while the women are attending the National Rifle Association’s Annual Meetings.

In the introductory episode, Lightfoot and Baird discuss one of the hottest topics in shooting – guns and babies. The women introduce the 3-part series on Guns and Babies – focusing on pregnancy and shooting – available as downloads at their websites. Guest Gabby Franco, who was an Olympic shooter and now is a firearms trainer, talks about why she has chosen to step away from the range during her pregnancy and offers a drill for dry-fire training. LaserMax, Inc., and Everything Covert sponsored the pregnancy series guides.
