XS Sights, a majority women-owned company, has announced that Michelle Waldran and Jen Blake have been named XS Ambassadors. In their duties, they will support the company’s social media efforts and help bring awareness to women about the importance of learning firearm safety and training for self-defense.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Michelle Waldran now lives in Oklahoma and was introduced to handguns at age 14 when visiting her uncle on summer break. She is now an NRA Certified Pistol Instructor, Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET) handgun instructor, and Oklahoma Self-Defense Act instructor. Waldran is also a member of Team Walther Arms.

“The more I learned over the years attending advanced concealment courses, the more aware I became that a minor detail such as sights can influence the outcome of a critical encounter,” said Waldran who discovered the XS F8 Night Sights after struggling with target acquisition. “These made a world of difference in my target acquisition throughout various defensive shooting drills,” she said.

Jen Blake, an avid 3-Gun competitor, is a concealed-carry instructor and appointed NRA Counselor who teaches and certifies students to become NRA Certified Instructors in southern Ohio. She has traveled the country training women to use firearms safely and enjoys helping grow women participation in gun ownership whether for protection, hunting, or shooting sports. The mother of two boys, Blake says she understands the need to be responsibly armed.

“The most rewarding part of my job is helping families feel proficient with their shooting skills and giving them the confidence to feel safe knowing they can defend themselves,” said Blake.

Zack Kinsley, marketing manager for XS Sights, said, “We are delighted to have Michelle and Jen as XS Ambassadors and know their efforts will help us bring awareness to even more women about the importance of learning firearms safety and training for self-defense.” Kinsley says the two ladies embody the core behind their business. ”If your fundamentals are bad, great night sights or any sights for that matter won’t correct the problem. We will lean on them to drive home the drills and training for so many women … “
