So, this was amazing. At #GAOS. Stopped for NRA Board member, friggin-expert hunter BFF Kristy Titus seminar “Positional Shooting”. Packed room of hunters, long-range shooters, Kristy fans. Great learning experience. When she had to pack out for the next seminar coming in, get this, Kristy asked me to case her rifle. Ok, I got to carry Kristy Titus’ rifle out of the room. C’mon. How cool is that?

Finally was able to meet up with the retired LtCol at National Shooting Sports Foundation | NSSF SHOT Show!! Willes is literally one of the coolest people I know and a true DEFENDER of FREEDOM!!! So honored to know him!! Willes works non-stop to protect the freedoms so many people take for granted, including the Right to Self-Protection. As a woman and the best friend of a sexual assault victim, this Right is something very near and dear to my heart. ❤ The Right to Self-Protection should be of utmost importance to every person who values life and every freedom loving American! ### Thank you Raquel. Great to meet you & fam. Humbling to have your support. Friends, please Share to Pages & Groups to inform voters. #DefenderofFreedom#FreedomsSafestPlace
