Tracy Hughes ventured into the handgun shooting world approximately four years ago. Since then, shooting and teaching others to shoot, especially women, has become a passion. From getting her Concealed Handgun License to winning the Top Shooter Award in her Citizen’s Police Academy to shooting IDPA competitions, she has pursued learning all about handgun shooting. In order to share the passion, Tracy decided to become an NRA Certified Instructor and Range Safety Officer.
Tracy joined A Girl and A Gun Club, becoming the Chapter Facilitator for the Greater Houston area, after learning that the organization had a mission that paralleled her own for introducing women to the world of shooting and shooting sports. In addition to the AG&AG events, Tracy is busy with other Ladies Only classes and Co-Ed classes in the Houston area and shooting IDPA as often as possible.
Tracy has a Bachelors Degree in Emergency and Disaster Management. As an emergency preparedness specialist, Tracy paired her education with her passion for shooting, partnering with her husband and tactical life partner, Bill Hughes, to form Highlander Readiness Training and Consulting, offering firearms and personal preparedness courses. Tracy is also an instructor for Women's Safety Academy Texas.
