A Girl And A Gun 2024 National Conference Wrapup

Concealed Carry Inc, along with our associated brands, were privileged to exhibit and provide instruction at the 2024 A Girl and A Gun National Conference this past weekend outside of Grand Junction Colorado.

This was our 3rd year supporting this amazing event and the continued growth of the event and the passion of the attendees continues to impress. These ladies were not afraid to run and gun in the rain and hail this year or get down in the mud and do what had to be done!

It was a cold and wet weekend at the Cameo Shooting Complex outside of Grand Junction Colorado but that doesn't keep one from taking in the amazing views and scenery!

Below I'll briefly touch on the classes our team presented at the conference, other events we plan to attend this year and some of the more popular products we sold during the AGAG Vendor Day.

Vendor Day

The weekend kicks off for us with Vendor Day. The 706 attendees do gear checks and prepare for their classes. Many also visited the “vendor” tents where we had many of our most popular products available for sale.

Since the ladies are on-site at the range and about to partake in 3 days of training we tend to sell a lot of our best products during the event. We introduced a brand new product that I'm not yet at liberty to talk about but I will highlight the top 4 selling products from the vendor day:

EarClip – Belt Hanger For Ear Muffs

This has been the top-selling product from us the last two years as well. Sometimes the simplest things are the most valuable and this easy and quick solution to stashing one's ear muffs is a must on the range. Each year more and more ladies ask us where they can get these after seeing the other shooters using them on the range.

Yellowstone Trauma Kit

Our #1 bestseller from the Mountain Man Medical lineup of Trauma Kits; The Yellowstone has everything one person could need to deal with major bleeding and trauma. Below I'll talk more about some insights we gained in some of the medical training courses Brian presented.

SoftSeals – Gel Ear Pads For Hearing Protection

softseals for electronic hearing protection

At this event and other conferences attendees often spend effectively 3 straight days on the range. That shouts headache and discomfort with any traditional brand name hearing protection. These SoftSeals are the solution. They seal better around your glasses and spread out the pressure along a larger surface area and a softer contact material. Its like pillows for your ear muffs.

9mm BarrelBlok – Dry Practice Safety & Training Tool

Not a lot of opportunities to use BarrelBlok at the conference but these ladies know the value of Dry Practice and care about getting in good and safe reps. Nothing better than BarrelBlok to help make that happen.

Performance Pistol | Shooter Ready – Riley Bowman

No idea what Riley is doing in this picture but feel free to comment below with your own caption for this picture!

Our Director of Training, Riley Bowman presented 6 total training sessions with 2 different class options. Performance Pistol and “Shooter Ready” which was focused on movement and competitive stage planning.

Riley had full classes for almost every session and was impressed with the skill level of these ladies!

Care Under Fire – Brian McLaughlin

Despite getting shuffled around due to inclement weather Brian was able to stick to his schedule and teach 6 total sessions of “Care Under Fire.”

This trauma class was focused on the skills of “Stop The Bleed” but applied in a hostile environment where scene safety and tactical priority are critical.
