Team Captain Julie Golob Marks 7th Anniversary With Smith & Wesson® With NRA Action Pistol Distinction

Seven-year Smith & Wesson Shooting Team Captain Julie Golob has recently been awarded the National Rifle Association (NRA) Action Pistol Distinguished Badge.

PP: Even when you are not competing, you always seem to find a new way to use your voice as a shooting celebrity. Through your writing, personal engagements, or social media, your message is always positive and welcoming. What do you hope those listening are able to take away from your most recent accomplishment.

JG: I hope others, especially those young women who are competing in the sport, looking to experience competitive shooting for the first time or perhaps just enjoying the shooting sports in general, understand that there are no limits to the accomplishments they can achieve. This goes for not just shooting but for their personal lives and any career path they choose to follow. The shooting sports have been a great teacher and the confidence it bestows is one of those universal benefits that we can all use. The great things in life are very rarely achieved without some sacrifice and hard work. Give your best 100% of the time and remember to enjoy it!

Smith & Wesson is proud to continue its promotion of the shooting sports through a variety of sponsorships and programs within the industry. Through its dedication and that of its shooting team members such as Julie Golob, the company has renewed it’s commitment for 2013 by acting as the title sponsor of the NRA Women’s Television Network, various women’s shooting programs and the certified NRA Pistol Instructor’s Program.
