Two thousand and fourteen’s shooting season arrived with Shy’s entry into the realm of three gun competitive shooting, progressed with expanding her political activism, culminated with the Brownells Lady 3 Gun Pro-Am Challenge, and is closing with a considerable gain in media attention. The expectation was never for her to secure a win; Shyanne’s goal was to gain experience with the rigors of the competition, explore the complexity of the stages, and build comfort with her equipment. The year was a resounding success!
The Brownell’s Lady 3-gun solidified her position in the shooting community; a family of energetic and inspiring individuals. When your competition is your greatest resource leveraged for your future the character and quality of the people shines. Competitors mentor new comers as a general practice; a tradition that exists in spite of the fact that the reigning champion’s ability to maintain their winning payday means they have to win. Everyone is about the future, while still driving hard to win the day. As the upcoming generation builds upon the current techniques, exceeds the existing expectations, and sets new records the world champions of today pass the baton; assuring our individual rights and liberties will be preserved.
Thanks to Shyanne’s sponsors, supporters, and fans the opportunities this season have been nothing short of amazing. She is exceptionally grateful to those who took their personal and professional time to mentor her, Madalyn Stewart, and Allie “Allie-Cat” Barrett … The Pro Line-up: Lena Miculek, TacTissy, Heidi Kempin, Katelyn Francis, Nikki Turpeaux, Becky Yackley.3Gun, Steph Payne Shooting, Rhonda “Stones” Stonaker, Karla Herdzik, Julie Waasted – Competitive Shooter, Dani Bryan, Annette Evans, Jessie Duff, Janna Reeves, Reanna Kadic, Heather Fitzhugh, and Dianna Liedorf.

Special thanks the NRA and 1MMAGC for the opportunity they provided for Shyanne to attend the NRA National Convention 2014. To Brownells, Inc. and Lisa Marie Judy for their sponsorship of her entrance into the Lady 3-gun. Wow! – Thank you so much to Geissele Automatics for the surprise of the season, a crazy purple AR-15 extended as a reward for Shy’s tenacity and persistence at the ProAm.
Without her camera crew, Eric Saperstein, Sandra Muldoon, Lawrence R. Greenberg, and Dan Roberts would be no viral videos, cover shots, and media frenzies. These people support her career with their time, skills, and equipment. They provide fans the window into Shy’s activities, her sponsors with maximum exposure, and offer positive public relations for the shooting sports. Thank you!
Thank you to the media, YES the media! Not only did this season give Shyanne the cover of Junior Shooters, appearances on Gun For Hire Radio, Cam & Co, NRA News, and worldwide social media exposure, and a dozen or so newspaper articles, the national mainstream media actually presented her as a positive example of youth shooting in America. Fox News, Chasing New Jersey, CNN, ABC Nightline, and Fox & Friends all cast a spotlight and turned our Tom Boy Diva into the poster child for the pink gun generation.
