Babes With Bullets Fall Diamond Camp

Here’s one way to guarantee you have all the ammo you need to enjoy a range outing: Join the other women attendees at the Babes With Bullets FALL Diamond Camp, at which you will receive a certificate for a semiautomatic handgun* and custom holster from Weber Tactical ($700 value). Campers also receive a deluxe SWAG bag.

This September, the Babes with Bullets FALL Diamond Camp will convene at the legendary Keyah Grande Lodge near Durango, Colorado, a spectacular, small upscale resort, located on more than 4,000 acres of natural beauty in the San Juan Mountains in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, about 45 minutes from the Durango airport. 

Campers will arrive to Keyah Grande on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 9, and depart on Sunday, Sept. 12, 2021. Keyah Grande is considered one of the most exclusive and private destination venues in Colorado and, which includes a private elk ranch! Rooms are beautifully appointed with double occupancy, including their own bathroom.

Campers will be treated each evening to unique wild game dinners prepared by celebrity chef Emily Sprissler (Top Chef finalist). Breakfast and lunch are served in a more casual manner. A full hosted bar is also part of Diamond Camp along with a massage therapist, ATV adventures or possibly a wild hog hunt (contact [email protected] for hunt information). 

Activities at the Keyah Grande will include private massage in the on-site spa facility, hiking, fishing, ATV tours, and an opportunity to go horseback riding. Morning events include firearm training with handguns and a variety of rifles, including Umarex Airsoft events. There is also a Trap and Skeet range on-site.

While the concentration of training will be on handguns, there will be some bolt-action rifle practice available as well. Instructors will be world shooting champions Kay Miculek (head instructor) and Lisa Munson (senior instructor), who have been the instructor backbone of the Babes With Bullets program since 2004. All guns and ammo are provided as part of the “Diamond” experience including shotguns for trap and skeet.

This three-day, three-night experience is the perfect event for novice through intermediate skill level, and for beginning huntresses too! *Each attendee will receive a gift certificate for a new 9 mm semi-automatic handgun and a gift certificate by Weber Tactical Holster, a total of a $700 value. (There will be a selection of firearms manufacturers to choose from, as some guns are NOT California legal.) Each camper will also be presented with a great SWAG bag upon their arrival, which includes electronic hearing protection and some other great gifts!

What campers will learn:

  • Basics of safe gun handling
  • Proper grip techniques
  • Proper shooting stance
  • Sight picture and alignment
  • Trigger control and follow-through
  • Confidence drawing from a holster or conceal carry purse

Who should attend:

  • Women who have little or no handgun or rifle (or shotgun) experience
  • Women who have some firearms experience and would like additional training
  • Women who want to be taught by some of the best female trainers in the world!
  • Women who are looking for an adventure of a lifetime!
