Our VALUABLE Sponsors
Smith & Wesson has been the Foundation Sponsor for Babes with Bullets since the camps began in April 2004. Smith & Wesson also provides all the loaner equipment in both handguns and rifles so that campers attending who do not have a gun have the opportunity to “try before they buy.” Having both S&W handguns (.22 caliber along with the .9mm M&P) and also S&W rifles (.22 caliber and .223 caliber) is invaluable!
Bushnell came onboard as a Babes with Bullets sponsor in 2012 and brought a host of products from their other companies, like Uncle Mike’s holsters and shell caddies, Uncle Mike Tactical Belts and 3-Gun Belts, along with new scopes by Millett. The Millett scopes are used on the S&W .223 M&P rifles that are used at the Babes with Bullets popular 3-gun camps.
Our faithful camera supervisor, Marilyn Vogel of ProVideos 4 U, is also our “makes magic in the studio” editor! Marilyn, joined by ProVideos 4 U owner Bob Martin, has been the driving force behind the webisodes enjoyed at our website and also at www.OutdoorChannel.com/BabeswithBullets. This team is irreplaceable and their commitment to our project is beyond words! (FYI – Marilyn is also a Babes with Bullets alum and a multi-gun competitor.)
OTIS Technology came onboard as a sponsor for Babes with Bullets starting in 2010. Besides their financial support OTIS Technology also donates their OTIS Elite package (a top of the line cleaning system for pistols, rifles and shotguns) for each camp. This package, along with a “Babes” tiara, is awarded to a novice camper who has the best group of six shots by the end of the second day at camp. This much enjoyed camp experience is now called the “OTIS Novice Group Goddess” shoot-off.
Hi Viz Shooting Systems has been a sponsor of our camps since 2007. Chris Quam, Director of Sales for Hi Viz, is a several time Babes with Bullets alum. She is also the driving force behind the Hi Viz scholarship program offered to deserving women who want to attend camp at a discount. In addition to financial support Hi Viz also donated all the sights used on the camp guns along with our limited edition “Babes” M&P guns.
Atlanta Arms & Ammo (special thanks to owner, Danny Wisner) came on board as a Silver Sponsor for Babes with Bullets ™ in 2010 and what a blessing they have been! Considering that we go through over a 100,000 rounds of .9mm ammo per year having Atlanta Arms & Ammo step forward to become the official handgun ammo sponsor allowed the camps to continue expanding across the country.
Babes with Bullets welcomes Mossberg as a Silver Sponsor! As we developed the 3-gun camps, that have been very popular, we needed a reliable shotgun for our campers to use and Mossberg stepped up to the plate with providing our camp with over a dozen of its new competition .12 gauge 930JM product (JM as in Jerry Miculek, who has been one of our 3-gun instructors along with his wife, Kay Miculek, who is the Babes with Bullets head instructor.) Once again our campers have the opportunity to “try before they buy” as we provide them with the handguns and rifles from Smith & Wesson and now the top of the line competition shotgun from Mossberg.
MGM Targets has been a leader for over 20 years in providing quality steel targets to the firearms industry. MGM is now a sponsor for Babes with Bullets and besides financial assistance they provide our camp with a variety of steel targets from plate racks to self-setting poppers and steel swingers. If you’ve ever held a match or training session in bad weather than you know steel targets can be invaluable and even in good weather steel targets are a “Must” for any training facility. FYI – Rhonda Gibson, co-owner of MGM Targets, is also a Babes with Bullets alum!
For those of you who know about rifles the name JP Enterprises is synonymous “high quality and great triggers.” We were thrilled when JP came on board in 2010 as a camp sponsor. They donated a variety of products for our S&W camp rifles, specifically their outstanding trigger unit. Some people would say we really go all out to make sure that every firearm our campers touch are “user friendly” and they would be right!
A firearm that is easy for our novice women to use, including top of the line triggers, makes their camp experience that much more successful. JP Enterprise also donated one of their custom AR-15 rifles to be auctioned off in 2011. A portion of the proceeds from the JP rifle will be used for additional rifle camp scholarships.
Howard Leight came on as a sponsor for the Babes with Bullets camps in early 2010 both in terms of financial support and also providing our camps with the much needed ear and eye protection for both our instructors and campers. With many of our campers flying into the programs, with limited luggage room, the hearing and eye protection being provided on loan is yet another way to “try before they buy”. And big kudos to Howard Leight for sending two of their female sales and marketing women to our April 2011 camp! Having women in the industry support our program as we teach more women about firearms is a trend that we see growing so please support that effort.
