RED, a real GUN GIRL

One thing I believe that the gun media is missing is a real GUN GIRL; a lady that knows guns, knows how to shoot them and can communicate her experiences to readers. Last week I spent three days at Gunsite with Shelly Sargent.

Shelly or Red – talented young folks need nicknames – is an Editor at Large for Gun Nuts Media, a leading shooting sports online magazine masterminded by Caleb Giddings.

Shelly is also and Range Master at West Coast Armory, the largest indoor shooting sports facility in Western Washington and one of 18 NSSF rated 5 star ranges in the nation. Shelly can shoot, she is witty and she can hold her own around a bunch of neanderthal gunwriters that think they are all that and a full magazine. Check out what Shelly has to say at GUN NUTS.
