Outdoor Icon Kristy Titus Becomes Nightforce Optics Brand Ambassador

Kristy Titus is an icon in the outdoor, gun, and hunting industry so it’s no surprise that an outstanding company such as Nightforce Optics would embrace her as an ambassador. This week we also need to congratulate her on being elected to the NRA Board of Directors. What accomplishments!

Nightforce Optics Welcomes Kristy Titus as Brand Ambassador

Lavonia, GA, U.S. – Nightforce® Optics proudly announces an exclusive partnership with professional hunter and precision rifle shooter Kristy Titus as a brand ambassador and pro staffer for their premium sport optics including riflescopes, spotting scopes, and accessories.

“Regarded as a leader in shooting sports education, Kristy Titus is outspoken in her stewardship of wildlife and habitat conservation,” said Nightforce Optics Director of Sales and Marketing, Gordon Myers. “Combine that inner drive of hers with her rising status as a competitive shooter, her vigorous support of the Second Amendment, including her notable election to the National Rifle Association Board of Directors, and she’s the perfect choice to represent Nightforce to our diverse audience of shooting enthusiasts. It’s not every day the chance to partner with someone of Kristy’s talent comes along,” he said, “so when it does, you jump. We’re extremely proud to welcome her to the Nightforce family and are excited to support Kristy in her efforts to educate people, affirm her passion for big-game fair chase hunting, and compete in precision rifle matches with our brand.”

Titus brings skills and product insight to Nightforce through her unique upbringing. Raised leading a pack of string mules into the backcountry of Oregon, she experienced the thrill of public land, do-it-yourself western big game hunting, and began her career of volunteerism with The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. As a life member, Titus serves as a featured member of RMEF’s “Team Elk” television show airing on the Outdoor Channel and supports local RMEF chapter events and youth hunts across the U.S.

“Few people run gear as hard as competitive shooters and backcountry hunters, and finding someone who works as hard as Kristy is a tall order,” said Myers. “We’re outfitting her with the Nightforce ATACR™ series of riflescopes and look forward to seeing her put them to the test in the field. Her commitment to elevating her standings in precision rifle shooting is particularly exciting, so keep an eye on her ranking,” he said.

Nightforce recognizes that since women represent the largest growth segment in our industry, Titus’ influence is important. “Because of her approachable style and expert instruction, she easily relates to both men and women,” Myers said. Many people in the shooting sports community already know her through partnerships with Shoot Like a Girl, “NRA’s Women Tips & Tactics” on NRA TV, and even as the long-range precision marksmanship instructor at the Well-Armed Woman National Leadership Conference.

Other conservation organizations that enjoy Titus’ dedication include the Safari Club International (SCI), where she served as a President of the High Desert Chapter and went on to lobby members of Congress for legislation and policies to improve hunting and conservation efforts. Titus is also an ambassador for the National Wild Turkey Federation, a life member of the Wild Sheep Foundation, and member of the Mule Deer Foundation.

Look for Titus and Nightforce optics in her digital video series “Pursue The Wild” airing on RMEF’s ElkNetwork.com, YouTube, and Amazon TV. The reality show follows Titus on her journey as a backcountry big game hunter, competitive shooter, shooting instructor, and mentor to fellow hunters. It features her “Tips from the Wild” and “The Wild Kitchen” segments while promoting her beliefs in public lands stewardship and conservation.

Female Shooting-Sport Enthusiasts Supported by Cabela’s and Shoot Like A Girl Partnership

If you’ve been paying any attention at all, you know that women are the fastest growing segment of gun ownership in the U.S.. Some want to learn for self defense. Some for hunting, and others simply for self empowerment. I was lucky enough to help instruct for this fabulous organization, and it’s been fabulous to see their journey and growth. They’re reaching so many women. ~Mia


Cabela’s and Shoot Like A Girl Partner to Support Female Shooting-Sport Enthusiasts

Shoot Like A Girl is an industry-leader in introducing women to shooting sports and supporting those already participating in shooting activities. Female participation in such activities is on the rise.

Cabela’s and Shoot Like A Girl are working together to better serve the growing number of women enjoying shooting sports by offering female-specific gear and educational opportunities.

NRA Unveils ‘After the Shot’ | NRA Women

It’s empowering to learn to handle a firearm, but even better is where we go after our first shots. If you’ve been following the NRA series, ‘Love at First Shot’ you’ll be happy to see what happens next. NRA unveils the epilogue to the fabulous ‘Love at First Shot’ series, ‘After the Shot’. See a couple series links below! ~Mia


Jackie Got Her Gun
We first met Jackie Ducci as she began her firearms journey earlier this season in Episode 2, “Revolver Evolution.” Guided by the professional instruction of Team Smith & Wesson captain Julie Golob, and accompanied by her mother and longtime shooter, Donna, Jackie enthusiastically took her first shot—but that was just the beginning. In this special edition of Love at First Shot, we find out how her shooting story unfolded in After the First Shot: “Jackie Got Her Gun.”

Determined to take charge of her own safety, Jackie started her path to gun ownership for personal protection purposes. Although the process of obtaining a firearm permit in her home state of Connecticut was long and arduous, for her it was totally worth it in the end. With the help of a knowledgeable sales associate, Jackie found the perfect revolver, the Smith & Wesson Model 66. Upon becoming a gun owner, she discovered that shooting is a fun and exciting recreational activity that she can enjoy with family and friends. Jackie has even passed the torch to another first-time shooter, friend and former teacher, Tabitha.

Strength in Numbers
We first met Josephine Diaz in Episode 6, “Clays & Confidence,” when she convinced her neighbor, Jen Meier, to go shooting for the first time under the guidance of Team Smith & Wesson captain Julie Golob. Josephine herself had not been proficient with firearms until fairly recently, when she began cultivating a shared enthusiasm with her husband for hunting and shotgun sports. In this special edition of Love at First Shot, see what Josephine has been up to at her local range in After the First Shot: “Strength In Numbers.”

When she began frequenting the Hartford Gun Club, Josephine often found herself to be the lone woman. But instead of giving up or continuing to feel like an outsider, she decided the next step was to organize a women’s shooting group. With the help of the club’s leadership, Josephine built a dynamic circle of women who seamlessly combine socializing and shooting—with a lot of fun mixed in as well. Her story is an inspiring example of how one committed individual with a love for firearms can bring others into the fold.
