NSSF Supports WOMA’s She Never Quit Event
NEWTOWN, Conn. — The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®) is pleased to support the Women’s Outdoor Media Association’s She Never Quit Event, which brings together women attendees interested in honing their firearm skills and those working in the firearms industry to encourage participation in the shooting sports, while also raising funds for selected charities. Taking place October 8-11, this WOMA event is now in its fourth year at the Lazy J Ranch in Normangee, Texas, and hosted by Melanie and Marcus Luttrell (author of the book Lone Survivor). She Never Quit was inspired by Marcus Luttrell’s Team Never Quit and brings together approximately 40 women ranging from novice to expert and from all backgrounds, including women in the firearms industry, outdoor media representatives, and a representative for the charity SNQ benefits.
The atmosphere at the ranch is casual, friendly and cooperative, with activities beyond the daily shooting bay schedule including an active-shooter class, mace training, archery, yoga, fishing and more.
Attendees have the opportunity to learn from world-class women shooters who also excel at training, and will familiarize themselves with a variety of handguns, rifles, and shotguns. New this year is a .50-caliber shooting station. This year’s sponsors, along with NSSF, include Armscor/Rock Island Armory, Glock, FN America LLC, Patriot Defense, Mace Security International, Inc., Fiocchi USA, Anteris Alliance, Hiviz Sights, Sticky Holsters, Howard Leight, Gun Rodeo, Crossbreed, Umarex/Gnat Warfare, Colorado Bowhunters Association, Gun Goddess and Otis Technology.
One of the highlights of this year’s event will be a silent auction to benefit selected charities. WOMA has invited Jodie Grenier, an Operation Iraqi Freedom Marine veteran and Executive Director of the Foundation for Women Warriors, which assists women veterans returning to civilian life. Both the FWW and the 100 Club of Houston, which supports families of local first responders killed in the line of duty, provide equipment and replace service dogs, have been selected as this year’s beneficiaries of the SNQ program.
