Author Annette Evans

Annette Evans picked up her first gun almost ten years ago "because every girl should know how to shoot." She started as a defensive shooter, became an instructor, then fell in love with competitive shooting. Her passion is the craft of marksmanship, which she pursues as a representative of King Shooters Supply, Grayguns, and Race Street Range. And yes, she finally cleans and maintains her own guns. You can find out more about Annette and what she's up to at Blasting Beauty.
