Pete Swenson has been involved in competitive NRA smallbore rifle shooting as both a competitor and Match Director for much of his life. Realizing that conventional NRA smallbore was losing popularity, he started researching other shooting sports activities and discovered the NSSF Rimfire Challenge program.

It soon became one of its most popular activities.
Pete is an NRA Certified Chief Range Safety Officer and NRA Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun, Personal Protection in the Home and Outside the Home Instructor. He brings a strong background in running and managing various competitive shooting sports programs. Additionally, he has helped develop and organize youth shooting camps.

Julianna Crowder developed an interest in competitive shooting in 2004. She mainly participated in IDPA matches, but her enthusiasm to educate others about firearm safety and the shooting sports inspired her to become a Certified License to Carry and Firearms Instructor.
In 2011, Julianna founded “A Girl and A Gun Women’s Shooting League.” Seeing a need to bring more women into the shooting community, she used her expertise in developing and managing numerous training events from the local to national levels. This league is now one of the largest firearms training organizations for women.
Julianna retired from AG & AG in 2022 and now continues to follow another passion and business as a Certified Pilates Instructor plus studying to be a Certified Scolio-Pilates Practitioner.
