Women’s Outdoor & Shooting Industry Dinner, Shot Show 2015 ~ Nikki Turpeaux, Lynn Sherwood, Gloria Courser, High Caliber Women

Ladies at the Women’s Outdoor and Shooting Industry Dinner at Shot Show 2015 were all business – at least for Feathers, Fun, and Friendship-making!

Beyond being an exceptional networking opportunity, the support “from women for women” in the industry was palpable. 

I read a quote in the weeks before the dinner (forgive me:  could it have been from Lisa Looper or Julianna Crowder, by chance??!?) stating something to this effect:  “I don’t need to be jealous of other women in my field.  We’re all working toward the same goal here….”

Poignant. …and so true!  The “Birds of a Feather…” theme was perfectly apropos.

Truly an event to lift one another up as accomplished women in our own rights – in a primarily male-dominated world, the dinner offered ample opportunity to ‘meet the stars’ for those of us who think shindigs like this are WAY better than Hollywood premiers 🙂 ;  to network directly with fellow female shooters and industry leaders;  to be able to buy a boat-load of guns and gear for use in our personal lives and our female-owned businesses, while at the same time contributing to Task Force Dagger’s mission, to boot!!!!!!   Um, YES!!!!!

Feathers ~ in addition to these goals and fun?!?  Bring it on, girlfriend!

Lynn Sherwood, CEO High Caliber Women and Jackson Hole Shooting Experience ~ Review of: Femme Fatale Corset Holster

Check out my gear review on for the Femme Fatale Corset Holster, my new favorite thing! -Lynn


I’m catching flak that ‘holsters shouldn’t be about comfort, a fashion statement or feeling pretty’.  I found this holster after trying for THREE YEARS to find the right holster which didn’t make me look pregnant, feel as though I walked like a duck, or make it ridiculously obvious that I was carrying.  I’d estimate 92+% of our female pistol students are also NOT carrying even after getting their CCW permit, directly because they also have not found a good option as women.

My take:  A) It doesn’t do anybody any good sitting in a drawer or in a holster at home on the counter because a woman’s not wearing it…. B) Practice, practice, practice with any holster/firearm you’ll actually use.  We ‘’sink to the level of our training”. (– B. Harnish and Lt. Col. Dave Grossman)

Lovin’ my holster and am finally able, willing and comfortable carrying 100% of the time (where permitted) ~ Priceless.
