This year, the Bonnier Sportsman’s Lounge in the Sands Expo Center hosted its second annual Meet & Mingle social event presented for and by the women of the shooting, hunting and outdoor industries. Some head counters estimated as many as 300 women attended, and others suggested 400. Held in the late afternoon on Thurs., Jan. 19, this event was open to all women who attended SHOT Show.

We received positive feedback from our survey following last year’s event,” said Barbara Baird, Publisher, Women’s Outdoor News and Contributing Editor, SHOT Daily and SHOT Business. “We were delighted to host a gathering where women in the industry met and networked. Special thanks to Susan LaPierre, of the NRA Women’s Network, and Julie Golob, professional competitor and retail seminar presenter at SHOT Show 2017, for their guidance in planning and helping to make this event a success. We could never have provided such a warm and relaxing afternoon event without the generosity of our 10 sponsors.

The following sponsors underwrote the costs of the event: AZ Firearms/Gun Freedom Radio, Beretta, Crossbreed, DIVA WOW, Jagemann Sporting Group, NRA Women’s Network, Remington Outdoor Company, Shoot Like A Girl, Smith & Wesson and The Well Armed Woman.
