The first Babes with Bullets event was held in April 2004, at the Louisiana home range of head instructor, Kay Miculek. Deb Ferns, a novice shooter who shot a gun for the first time at age 45, was invited by world and national handgun champion, Lisa Munson, to attend the 2004 event. After a successful weekend of women teaching women to shoot in a supportive environment, the three ladies (Deb, Kay and Lisa) decided to offer similar camps at other locations across the country. With the assistance of Smith & Wesson, the women launched the Babes with Bullets firearms academy that ran from April 2004 to November 2019 with over 5,500 alum spread throughout North America.
Going forward into 2020 the Babes with Bullets program continues with its annual Diamond Camp (put link here for camp), a co-ed Babes with Bullets & Friends 3-gun camp held each spring (I’ll get you this info soon) and also the Babes with Bullets 3-Gun Challenge (put the link here for the match.). In
January 2018 Deb also launched the Ladies Adventure Camp Experience (www.JoinLACE.com) as she and Kay mentor women in a variety of hunting and fishing events.
