NRA Women's Network Now Presented by Smith & Wesson

Thursday, December 6, 2012

FAIRFAX, VA – The National Rifle Association (NRA) announced today that Smith & Wesson is the presenting sponsor of the NRA Women's Network.

"It's no secret that women are now engaging in hunting and the shooting sports in record numbers.  My wife Susan and I are especially excited about the immediate success of the NRA Women's Network," commented NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre.  "With Smith & Wesson's sponsorship and on-going involvement we will continue to grow this community and provide this valuable resource to women across the country."

Susan LaPierre described the NRA Women's Network as "a growing resource for female gun enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels." The network features individual channels devoted to hunting, shooting, education, profiles and resources — each offers a unique experience and provides information on events, programs, competitions, clinics and ranges. In addition, there are more than 60 member profiles, plus spotlight videos, photo galleries and links to shopping, blogs, clubs, news and more.  It is located online at www.nrawomen.tv.    

"Smith & Wesson is proud and delighted to be partnered with the NRA Women's Network.  We are certain that women will want to get involved with this community whether they are brand new to the shooting sports or have been shooting their whole lives.  The NRA Women's Network provides a great opportunity for women to develop their shooting skills, learn more about the shooting sports, and meet likeminded women," remarked Smith & Wesson CEO James Debney.
