Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

Debbie to appear on Kate Krueger’s Talking Guns Radio Program

We have some exciting news for HerHandgun …

Debbie will air as a guest on the radio, this Sunday morning, November 25th from noon to 2:00 p.m. [MST] to chat with Kate Krueger.  Kate’s Talking Guns  program in on Independent Talk Radio KFNX 1100.  The website http://1100kfnx.com  also has a “Listen Live – Click Here” option in the top right corner*.

Kate and Debbie met at the recent Babes With Bullets Class in Tucson.  Maybe Deb will post a story on her experiences at the camp … hint, hint, nudge, nudge.

A bit about Kate from her website:

“Kate has a strong firearms and martial arts background. Although she was not brought up around firearms her fighting spirit eventually brought her to that next logical step. She is an NRA Instructor and a certified Arizona Concealed Carry instructor as well. Her thirst for knowledge has led her to training facilities around the country, Smith & Wesson, Lethal Force Institute (now Massad Ayoob Group), Chapman Academy, Gunsite to name a few. Isshin Ryu was her style of choice in martial arts but she has continued to add to that background with ground fighting, hand to hand, weapon retention and other variants of weapon and empty hand techniques. Through martial arts and shooting competitions over the years she honed her skills.

Kate is very passionate about the United States of America and all it stands for particularly the 2nd Amendment and our Constitution.

Her skill set and passion came together in 1992 when she ran for US Senate in NH as a Libertarian candidate. It also sparked an early interest in the power of radio. Today she brings all that passion and skill together for you with Talking Guns!!!  Don’t tread on me!”

To find out more about Kate, check out her website.  http://www.katekruegertalkingguns.com

So, if you’re not out Christmas shopping on Sunday morning, and home from church already, have a listen to Deb’s interview!

Good luck, Deb and have fun!  ~Kip

Area-2 Recap and December Practice Match – Annie Get Your Shotgun!






USPSA Area-2 Championship Recap:

We hope you’re having a wonderful November!  We  really missed shooting with you this month.  As you already know, our November Practice Match was cancelled due to the USPSA Area-2 Desert Classic match held earlier in November.   We do have a lot of good news to report from the Match, though.  Here is how our HerHandgun ladies performed – hope I didn’t miss anybody:

  • Sue Little finished 8th in Open Division
  • Trisha Lowry finished 9th in Open Division
  • Cindy Catizone finished 11th in Open Division
  • Gale Aschenbach finished 14th in Open Division
  • Jaci Janes finished 2nd in the Single Stack Division
  • Kippi Leatham won the women’s Area-2 Single Stack Division Championship
  • Cindy Redies finished 4 in Limited Division
  • Debbie Keehart won the women’s Area-2 Limited Division Championship

BIG congrats to all of the ladies who shot the match.  Next year, maybe we’ll see more of you participating at the largest USPSA Area Match in the country!


December Practice Match – Annie get your Shotgun:

With the busy holidays impending, we wanted to remind you well in advance of our December practice match.  It will be held Sunday, December 2nd from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Please arrive by 1:45 at the latest to sign up and gear up!

This month, Deb would like to include one stage that uses a shotgun and a pistol.  She will supply her shotgun, but if you have your own, please feel free to bring it [unloaded of course] and your own ammo.  Birdshot only – no slugs.

If you would like to help with the cost of shotgun ammo, please pick up a box of 8 shot 12 gauge shotgun shells or bring a couple of extra dollars.  Deb would certainly appreciate it!

We won’t shoot a lot of shotgun in the stage, but Deb wants to introduce something fun and different!  If you’re a little [shot]gun-shy, we won’t force you to shoot, but we’re thinking you’ll really like it if you give it a try!  🙂

Hope to see you the first Sunday of December!  You will need 100 rounds of pistol ammo to get through the courses.  Remember – you must have prior approval to join us if you haven’t shot with us before.  $10 for Rio members, $15 for guests.  What better way to relieve a little Holiday stress …

Happy Thanksgiving one and all.
