AUSTIN, Texas - The 2013 A Girl & A Gun National Conference, Presented by Smith & Wesson, continues to gain support from leading firearms industry companies when it was announced that Taurus
, one of the world's foremost manufacturers of firearms and spearhead of the Carry On
movement to promote the concealed carry lifestyle, will be a platinum sponsor of the sold-out event.
The 2013 A Girl & A Gun National Conference, Presented by Smith & Wesson, will take place March 22-24 at T.I.G.E.R. Valley, the premiere training facility in Central Texas located in Waco. Bringing together some of the top women in the shooting industry, the conference offers participants training sessions, live-fire instruction and presentations on topics relevant to women participating in the shooting sports today.
"We are very pleased to have the support of Taurus. Our meeting with them and their CEO Mark Kresser was very refreshing because it proved once again that companies such as Taurus are firmly committed to outreach programs, like A Girl & A Gun, that bring more women into the shooting sports," said Julianna Crowder, president of A Girl & A Gun Women's Shooting League
"Taurus stands behind A Girl & A Gun and other organizations that bring more women into the shooting sports. Whether it's to hunt or compete, like Team Taurus' own Jessie Duff, or to find the confidence that comes from taking control of their own personal protection, the shooting community's doors are wide open to women and we're proud to help A Girl & A Gun roll out the red carpet," said Mark Kresser, president and CEO of Taurus.
A Girl & A Gun Women's Shooting League is a ladies-only organization established by women shooters for women shooters for the pistol, rifle and shotgun sports. Founded in February of 2011 in Austin, Texas, A Girl & A Gun today has more than 1,000 members and 28 clubs in 11 states, making it the fastest growing women's shooting organization.
