abriela (Gabby) Franco exudes
energy and confidence as she
travels the country teaching firearms courses and competing in
USPSA matches. A former pistol

I have the opportunity to dance in a theater,
"
she said. She also loves traveling, exploring
and meeting new people in this country she
calls home.
Gabby is the author of Troubleshooting:
Mastering Your Pistol Marksmanship, a

a very personal and technical way how to
shoot precisely with a handgun. Visit
