From Tamara: I’m 43, a native Floridian, grew up in the country atmosphere, learning to shoot from my Dad for defense/protection from rattlesnakes, intruders, etc. and was taught gun safety all a the same time. Always had horses so I’ve shown competitively all my life and just started shooting competitively in the last year or so. I graduated from University of Florida with my first bachelors degree and then went for a second in nursing, which is what I’ve been doing career-wise for the last 12 years.
I wanted to get more involved with guns so I joined TWAW after seeing their information on FB. I’ve been an active member of the Gainesville chapter (and a co-leader) for nearly 3 years now. I am also a member of A Girl and A Gun and we are building a new chapter in Gainesville currently. I am single, recently divorced, and have a great small country farm outside of Gainesville, FL where my horse and two dogs live with me.
