I am impressed by the entire operation at MGM Targets.  The customer service is absolutely top notch.  Your shipping absolutely blows my mind.  I order on a Wednesday evening and I receive my gongs on Saturday morning..... Wow, just Wow.  This was the second time I have bought products from you, and I can guarantee it won't be the last.  Great product, great service and obviously great people operating and working at MGM.

I attended a Babes with Bullets camp and want to thank MGM Targets for sponsoring the camps.  I learned so much about gun safety and how to use a firearm.  Thank you so very much for your involvement in helping women learn to shoot.

Mr. Gibson,
 
First, I want to thank you for helping to make Babes with Bullets happen.  I attended my first Babes with Bullets camp last weekend in Tucson.  I learned more in three days then I had in the last 11 years; when I first started shooting. Also, I had more fun then I ever had with a gun before. I look forward to going to the range now, and I can’t wait to start putting the skills I learned to use.  This was the first time I had ever shot at steel targets. It is so much fun then just shooting at paper.  I am looking forward to the day when I have a large enough property that I can set up my own steel plates.  Until then I will use ranges that have your targets.
 
I am looking forward to the next Babes with Bullets Camp that is near me; I plan to attend!  Thank you again for sponsoring this camp, please continue.  This camp has been the single largest impact on my enjoyment of sport shooting!
 
Thank You,
K. Biggs

Dear Mr. Gibson,

I recently attended a Babes With Bullets camp in Montana and it was wonderful! It was life changing in many ways!

I would like to sincerely thank you for the support you give for their camps. These instructors are informative and very professional and know how to make shooting fun! They need people like you to keep their program going to help women become more independent in the shooting/self defense world.

Thank you,
Laurie H.

Thank you so much for your support of this amazing camp. With your sponsorship, countless women get to experience the joys of shooting!!

Thanks again,

Dear Sponsors, 
I had the benefit of participating in the Babes with Bullets Camp
in Tucson, AZ. It was a grand experience and every one was so complementary of their instructors.  As a former police officer (ages ago) I shot a Smith&Wesson revolver. When I departed that position, several officers were just starting to carry a 9mm. 
I had no experience with that type of gun until I got married 
about 15years later and that was just occasional target practice.
 
These great instructors were not only educational, but were
motivating us to participate more in this sport.  They strongly
and respectfully promoted their sponsors and I want to personally
thank you for your contribution. 
 
Without your financial assistance many women wouldn't be able
to attend and they'd never know about your wonderful products.
It was great to see some women overcome their fear and some
truly gain personal confidence through this event.  The technology
has come a long way and it was great to learn about new safety
items, targets, pistols, etc. 
 
THANK YOU for your sponsorship!
 Respectfully,

 JoAnn H, Texas

Hello Mike,

I just wanted to thank you and MGM Targets for your ongoing support of the Babes with Bullets 3-Gun camps.

    I spent 4 incredible days with champions who were gracious and excited to share their skills and experience. As a fellow woman shooter, it is not easy to find other women who are as enthusiastic about the sport and about winning performance. To be surrounded by women who are confident in their skills and who are in the upper echelon of the sport is an awesome experience. This is even more meaningful when they are all genuine people without arrogance or artifice.

    Thank you not only for your back end support, but also for the equipment you provide. I must admit I mildly detested the steel during the Daniel Drills, but it was a very useful exercise. I must tell you your equipment stands up to an enormous amount of usage. Impressive.

    It should be with pride that you sponsor Babes with Bullets. Their support of your products during the camp was first class, just like the character of all the instructors.

Sincerely, Yim Szeto

Dear Mr. Gibson,

I am one of many babes with bullets campers.  I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere thanks and gratitude for your continued support of babes with bullets.  Without your support both through financial and supplying the steel plates, babes with bullets would not be possible.  I walked away with knowledge that I will use for a life time.  My reason for attending Babes with Bullets, was to gain more knowledge so I could apply it to my own personal goal, which is to obtain a title before I turn 55, I am now 52.  These ladies are the best of the best and they have a wonderful way of teaching other women about firearms. Again, thank you sir for your support.

Respectfully,

JL

Dear Mike:

I have just recently returned from Arizona, where I completed the "Babes With Bullets" training camp.  I cannot adequately impress upon you what a positive & rewarding experience this was.  I joined 20-some other women to partake in this training & accomplished what I set out to do & that was to learn how to safely & comfortably handle & shoot a gun.  Although I rely on portable oxygen, I was able to take & complete this training right along with the rest of the class.

The instructors were amazing & I felt grateful to be taught by such qualified & patient women.  The other ladies were supportive of each other & expressed a feeling of camaraderie.

This experience is one that should be taught to all women to give them the security & education necessary in these days to be educated & informed on how to handle a weapon & be able to protect themselves & their family.

Thank you for what you do for the "Babes With Bullets".

I just wanted to send a quick email thanking all of you for making the Tucson Babes With Bullets camp the most amazing experience I have ever had!  I learned so much and feel so much more confident and empowered as a single woman.  I have been shooting and carrying a gun for a little over a year, but this camp taught me new and better techniques and gave me the tools to continue to practice on my own in order to continue to keep my newly learned skills up.   I also now have the confidence to feel comfortable signing up for additional local training and I am already saving up in hopes of attending next year’s camp.  Finally, I also discovered a whole bunch of things that needed to be added my Christmas list!  If someone had told me a couple years ago that I would be wishing for guns and gun accessories for Christmas I would have laughed!    In today’s political anti-gun environment I believe it is very important to enable people, especially women, to learn and understand that guns are a tool that, when one learns how to properly and safely handle them, can not only serve as a self-defense or hunting mechanism but can also be a part of an exciting sport!  Thank you all for your support of this worthwhile activity and sincerely hope that your support continues!

Dear Mike,

I am Susan Hester from Amarillo Tx. and I attended the Babes with Bullets camp on Oct 3-6, 2013. I wanted to thank you for your support of the Babes with Bullets camps. I have attended 3 camps (Amarillo 2012, Alaska 2013 & Amarillo 2013). MGM is supporting the most professional group of women instructors out there today. These camps are highly successful and fun! They empower women to have confidence in their skills and themselves.  Deb Ferns and her instructors are not only professional, they make learning a pleasure and safe!

 Thank you again for supporting Babes with Bullets and the amazing instructors and students who attend these camps.

Susan Hester, Vice President, Lone Star Women Shooters Amarillo, TX

Dear Appreciated MGM Customer:

   We have all recently seen great increases in demand for many firearms and accessories, especially AR parts such as magazines. Many are back ordered industry wide, and unfortunately, we are in that same boat. Our suppliers are telling us that they WILL be able to fill our backorders, but at this time we do not have a projected delivery date for more 5.56 and 7.62 P-mags. We truly appreciate your business and will ship them as soon as we receive our shipment. If you'd rather not wait with us, we certainly understand and will be glad to issue a refund to your account, with our apologies. At this time, we are confident that we will be able to fill EVERY order, and have compiled this note to let you know what is going on. Thank you for your past and future business!

Most Respectfully,
Mike Gibson and the MGM Team
