Girls Guide to Guns founder Natalie Foster's first visit to the NRA
Fairfax, Virginia -
We first met Natalie Foster at the 2009 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Big smile, happy laugh, full of excitement and anticipation over her new venture, Girls Guide to Guns. To quote from their website, "If one day Vogue and Guns & Ammo Magazine fell madly in love, got married and had babies, we would be their favorite child." So yes, she has quite the unique outlook on the shooting sports.
Since then she's been very active in the firearms industry. Taking classes, traveling to shows and building her own respectable collection of firearms. What else would you expect from a girl from Texas, even if she does call Los Angeles, California home. And yesterday, she made her first trip to the National Rifle Association's headquarters.
Brought in for an interview with the NRA Women's Network and NRANews, we put her through the ringer with a penthouse to basement tour of the building. Everything from the Great American Whitetail collection of the six floor to the National Firearms Museum on the first to the Headquarters Range in the parking garage.
"My dad is going to be so jealous," said Foster. "There is an unbelievable amount of firearms to see and programs at work. I am so honored ... especially to shoot on the range."
As she swore to share her experience on Girls Guide to Guns, we thought we'd give you a heads up before it all happens. After all, you never know what angle Natalie is going to take ... but it promises to be promising.
