Erin Garvin, Owner/Instructor
What Erin's been up to lately:
While fighting tick disease, the demands Erin could put on her body changed. Although she still bikes and does various other outdoor activities, she has pursued her interest in shooting. She participates in numerous IDPA, USPSA, & formerly Cowboy Action Shooting Competitions and is an NRA pistol instructor.
Erin started competing in USPSA in April 2018 including Nationals, Florida Open, SC, VA, & NC sectional matches.
In 2017 she enjoyed Cowboy Action and was top Virginia Shooter Cowgirl in 2017.
In International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA) competitions she focuses on using a firearm in real life self defense scenarios and enjoyed local and state competitions.
Erin feels her pilates and yoga practice has helped her better handle the balance and flexibility demands of shooting.
