Theresa Vail may be remembered as the contestant who turned heads at the 2014 Miss America pageant where she openly revealed her tattoos during the swimsuit competition, however, Vail's side of the story lies with the platform of empowering women. With her experience as an enlisted soldier and skilled marksman, she's certainly not your typical beauty pageant contestant and she shares her story and stance of breaking stereotypes surrounding women. Then, learn about the NRA Outdoors Long Range Hunting/Shooting School—a program designed to build up techniques and skills in marksmanship for long-range shooting and hunting. Available to NRA members, participants arrive with a varying level of experience in the field, but have a common goal to become more effective shooters and ethical hunters.
