AUSTIN, TX – “Pull!” was the anthem heard around the courses as 82 competitors participated in the 2nd Annual Women’s Clays Extravaganza Presented by CZ-USA Field Sports and hosted by A Girl & A Gun Women’s Shooting League (AG & AG).
The shoot included Trap, 5 Stand, and two different Main Event sporting clays courses. It took place August 27 & 28, 2021, at Powder Creek Shooting Park in Lenexa, KS.
CZ-USA Pro Staff hosted half-day clinics on the two days prior to the shoot. “One of my favorite things about AG & AG is the organization’s focus on education,” says Dave Miller, Shotgun Product Manager for CZ-USA. “Unlike so many misguided programs, AG & AG provides opportunities for its members to learn and grow in the shooting sports.”
Ranging from brand-new to sporting clays to Master-level shooters, the competitors varied in skills and experience. There were four Junior shooters in attendance. In addition, many shooters were pushed outside their comfort zones to try new shotgun sports that they had not competed in before.
“I shot trap for the first time and had a perfect 25 out of 25 straight hits my first round!” exclaimed Leslie Woolley from Cleburne, TX. “The Texas girls all had a great showing on clays and trap both. We have also had as much fun giggling as much as we have shooting!”

2021 NRA Show Products
Nashville, TN -(AmmoLand.com)- Jim Scoutten, Executive Producer of Shooting USA Television, has announced show production will immediately be expanded to showcase new products that are not going to be seen by NRA Members in Houston. This is the second time Jim and John Scoutten have offered to help launch new products following an NRA cancelation. The first offer was after the Covid cancellation of the Nashville NRA Annual Meeting in 2020.
Once again, Shooting USA will present new product demonstrations at no charge to manufacturers.
Scoutten said, “We have the quick turn-around ability to add more new product demonstrations, both into existing shows, and in new shows coming through our production pipe-line to air shortly on Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel Canada, and through two on-line subscription streaming sites. Our combined reach exceeds a half-million viewer impressions per month and is not limited to high-speed internet subscribers.”
“Priority for new product exposure will be given to existing and new Shooting USA Show Sponsors, but is not limited to sponsors, Scoutten said. “There is no charge for coverage of new products, but there is a deadline for submission. Contact us with your plans to submit a new product for coverage prior to September 25th. First Television appearances for new product demos will air as soon as October, reaching firearms enthusiasts and buyers in all 50 states and in Canada.
All companies that can benefit from wide-reaching exposure for their news products are invited to contact Tier One Media, LLC for instructions on promotion availability and FFL shipping of firearms.
“We’re uniquely positioned to help the firearms and accessory industry during these times, as people are again quarantining and improving their home defenses,” Scoutten said. “They need to know about the new products that can help with their preparations. And manufacturers need to reach the people they thought they would meet in Houston.”
