National Take Your Daughter To The Range Day

A Girl and Her Gun: National Take Your Daughter To The Range Day

National Take Your Daughter To The Range Day








I met Lynne several months ago.  I started following her blog about the same time she started following mine.  We share a passion for women, firearms, and helping, so our friendship was bound to grow.

One day Lynne posted a status update that said "Hey what do you all think of a National Take Your Daughter To The Range Day?"  Everyone liked it and there was much chitchat about how cool it would be.  A week or so later she had a website and some basic info on the idea.  A week later a donate button was installed which I have hit several times.  Next thing I know her little  FaceBook idea exploded into a national phenomenon.  Pure joy to watch her shine.

Tomorrow I have the honor and privilege to work the event taking place at the NRA Headquarters Range in Fairfax, Virginia.   I am so excited to be a part of this day!!!

If you are going to be there be sure to say hi and if not hopefully many of you will be participating at ranges near you!!

....am I the only one who noticed that AGirl has "a passion for women"? My dirty mind immediately flashed up with "hey, so do I!"

Unfortunately, it'll be a year or two before our little knucklehead is old/mature enough to head to the range...I know she wants to, because she keeps asking to see the guns (which we let her do, supervised, of course), and responds to the bribe "if you start behaving, you can go to the gun range with Mommy and Daddy when you're old enough". Hey...whatever works to prevent toddler melt-down, right? I do SO look forward to that day, though!

I can't wait for the pictures! Wish we had one in our area, but no range this year. Maybe next year. I'm living vicariously through you and Lynne.
