Fort Worth, TX (October 15, 2020) – XS® Sights is proud to announce that Michelle Waldran and Jen Blake have been named XS Ambassadors. As ambassadors, they will support the company’s social media efforts and help bring awareness to women about the importance of learning firearms safety and training for self-defense.
Born in Seoul, South Korea, Michelle Waldran now lives in Oklahoma and was first introduced to handguns at age 14 when visiting her uncle on summer break. She is now a certified NRA 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. “After a lot of research, I ordered XS F8 Night Sights. These made a world of difference in my target acquisition throughout various defensive shooting drills. Especially the one hand reload drill. The rear sight posts are rock solid and can be used to rack the slide one handed on any surface. Their tag line – The Fastest Sights in Any Light – is true. They are incredibly fast and much easier to see in day and night than standard sights. I’m proud to be an ambassador and help spread the word about the advantages XS Sights provide when it comes to self-defense.”
An avid participant in 3-Gun competitions, Jen Blake is a concealed carry instructor and appointed NRA Counselor who teaches and certifies students to become NRA 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. Blake is the mother of two boys and 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. “I am extremely excited to be an ambassador for XS Sights. They’re #1 in quick sight acquisition which is extremely important, especially in moments where every second counts. I’ve also found while teaching, the unique design of XS Sights has been a very easy sight picture for new shooters to comprehend over other types of sights.”
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. These ladies embody the core behind our 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, as they already do, and also help those shooters discover the XS brand benefits. These ladies are down to earth. You know where they stand, and we relate to and appreciate those qualities here at XS Sights.”
