Gabby is so inspiring. She’s overcome a lot and she’s super positive and straightforward. She’s helped the Walther brand significantly, especially by encouraging women shooters and she was on a panel of reviewers when Walther was developing its PDP-F, providing them feedback.
Today was an abbreviated version, but I’ve heard her talk about her life in Venezuela, coming here from Venezuela and becoming an American citizen. It’s a riveting story.
