Watching this video just makes me grin from ear to ear. Vicki Kawelmacher is one part street savvy business woman, one part adorable goofball, one part firearm fashionista and one part mama bear. Put those traits together, add a few guns to the mix and you get the Women’s Shooting Academy, Vicki’s company.

Vicki and I have been friends since Girl’s Guide began and I am proud to have had the chance to work with her, via NRA Women’s Network, on this video. There are some pretty incredible people that populate the world of firearms, but I have to say that Vicki is one of the most generous and big-hearted ones you could possibly find. I hope you enjoy this piece as much as we enjoyed making it.
