Team USA Women Were Winning at the World Cup

Three of the top four women’s positions at the recent International Shooting Sports Federation Shotgun World Cup went to members of Team USA, including Bryan, Texas high school Senior, Brandy Drozd.  Brandy was barely edged out of second place, and a silver medal, by Diana Bacosi of Italy.

You can read more about this competition, and about our awesome women shooters, by going to “The Shooting Wire:  Team USA Shines in Skeet to Kick-Off Tucson World Cup.”  I hope to have an interview with Brandy soon for the Generation HC series, so be watching here for that!

Shotguns and Sally Hope

I’ve been meaning to link to a story over at Sally Hope for some time, one in which she relates her love of shooting to real life experiences.  In this particular post, Sally was doing some skeet shooting and not shooting well:  “I wanted to give up.  Stop shooting.  But instead the next station I went to, I asked the shooting coach to give me specific help.  Show me what I’m doing wrong.  Give me tips on how to improve.  And the next time I shot, I hit half my targets.  Three in a row.  Not perfect but definitely better.”

First relating her experiences to shooting, and then to life and those times when we can’t figure out what we’re doing wrong but just know something is off, this first-hand shotgun story will inspire you to ask for advice whenever you find yourself in a similar situation – on or off the gun range.

You can find the story here:  “Shotguns.  And What That Has To Do With Your Life.”  And while you are there, check out her other posts.  I always learn something from this inspiring site and love her attitude about life.
