From Thursday, August 22 through Saturday, August 24, 2013 the Rockcastle Shooting Center in Park City, Kentucky, will be the host location for the first Annual Babes with Bullets 3-Gun Challenge. This program is combined with the AR15/Rockcastle Pro-Am event, one of the most sought after 3-gun competitions of the year that is held annually at the center. The Babes with Bullets event is coordinated by renowned 3-gun competitors Kay Miculek (head instructor of the Babes with Bullets camps and 14 time USPSA 3-Gun Champion) and Dianna “Di” Liedorff of Team FNH.
According to Miculek…”the number of women interested in 3-gun events is steadily increasing, as we’ve seen through our Babes with Bullets camps that sell out a year in advance. Thanks to Nick Noble (CEO of Rockcastle Shooting Center) we now have the opportunity to see up to 40 amateur and professional female shooters compete at one large national level 3-gun match.” Liedorff added… “this will potentially be the largest number of female 3-gun competitors ever gathered at one match. From a marketing standpoint it’s smart business to have more women entering into the 3-gun competition arena.” It was noted by Miculek that women do not have to be Babes with Bullets alum to participate in this event; however they do need prior competition experience with handgun at the very least along with being familiar with rifles and shotguns. If women do not have all the equipment necessary to participate in the match, Kay is willing to bring camp guns (Smith & Wesson handguns and rifles with optics, along with Mossberg 930JM .12 gauge shotguns) to be used during the competition. To use the camp equipment contactKay@BabeswithBullets.com.
The entry fee for amateur women is $125 and for women with professional status the cost is $250 with the registration available at www.BabeswithBullets.com under 3-Gun Challenge. Additional information on the match, including descriptions on “Pro” or “Amateur” status, is available at the website. (Slots for this match may not be transferred to another competitor as this event sells out very quickly though a refund is available up till July 1st.) Every woman who participates in the Babes with Bullets 3-Gun Challenge receives a nice package given by the NRA and an additional “goodie bag” estimated at over $300 as they arrive to the match. For companies interested in assisting with the “goodie bag” please contact Deb Ferns, camp director of Babes with Bullets, at Deb@BabeswithBullets.com.
