.. to influence Representatives and Senators not by demanding compliance, but rather through developing a relationship. Simply meeting them, getting to know them. Letting them see an actual gun-owning constituent. Possibly, changing the image some might have of such a person.

Celebrating and empowering American women
in shooting sports and personal defense
My mission is simple. I want to recognize women and all they contribute to shooting sports, whether it’s competitive shooting or hunting. I also want to highlight women who feel safer because they exercise their second amendment right to be armed…whether it’s in their home, on their person or both. Guns can and do save lives of women and their families every day. There are plenty of examples out there that highlight this and I promise we will spotlight these stories whenever we can.
2014 started by Jon James
” born of a smaller site, Maine Girls with Guns. After starting with a simple Pinterest and Facebook page, I saw how quickly interest grew and decided that maybe this thing should be bigger.”
dedicated to highlighting women who proudly support the second amendment and want to show their communities and the world that it is a right they exercise and are proud to show it. Women featured can be hunters, target shooters, competitive shooters, police officers, soldiers, concealed carry citizens or just women who believe strongly in the rights given to all Americans under the second amendment.
there are two sides to every story, and there are two voices in every debate. Our founder decided to create a Facebook page, where those that opposed “MDA” could come together and express their thoughts and voices openly.
dedicated to growing the number of women who participate in shooting sports by empowering them with confidence
with a mission to grow the number of women who participate in shooting sports by empowering them with confidence. The first five years focused on archery. The concept was if women could try to shoot a bow, they would love the feeling they get from shooting and join the sport. They developed a process called Test Shots™, and in five years Shoot Like A Girl put bows in the the hands of nearly 3,500 women and grew the number of women archers!
Feb 2009 launched at the World Archery Festival in Las Vegas, NV
