Maggie's Mission Alicia's Lesson

As Ruger begins its third season of New Shooter Academy, Team Ruger pro-shooter Maggie Reese Voigt is hosting the videos, drills and lessons. She has a mission to introduce every new gun owner to firearm safety. As she takes four new shooters through the process of going to the range and gun responsibility, she uses her upbeat energy and 10 years of shooting experience to make sure her students are being safe and having fun.

New shooters can learn alongside Alicia, Daphne, Evgeniya and Anthony or get the answers to specific questions and find drill ideas from Maggie’s Minutes. Maggie cites fond memories of range days with her dad as the inspiration behind Maggie’s Mission. She hopes to give others the same positive experience with firearms safety that her dad gave her. “Ultimately, if you have a good time practicing with your firearm, you are going to be a better shooter in the long run. And a better shooter makes for a safer shooter,” says Maggie. You can find the introduction to Maggie and the Ruger American New Shooter academy here.
