Chris Schmied


Digital Marketer & Design Guru by day, amateur shooter and outdoorsy type by night.
I shoot IDPA, Steel Challenge, USPSA and 3-Gun, mostly in the Southern US, and my home range is in Como, MS.
I'm a Mississippi certified Enhanced Pistol Instructor, NRA certified Basic Pistol and NRA Refuse to be a Victim.
If you're interested in a ladies only shooting league, with clinics and training, check out A Girl & A Gun!
I'm also a silly nerd, scifi geek and I love to camp and hike. Here you can read all about silly, personal me!


I am lucky enough to have some amazing shooting sponsors, partners, and to serve on the boards of some incredible organizations.

We believe that with the proper training, anyone can avoid becoming a victim. We teach everything from basic crime prevention to firearm use and safety.
The Sales and Marketing Society's primary goal is to provide educational events and services for sales and marketing professionals.
“God, Home, and Country” is not just a motto for us, but the central theme of our lives.


Whew, where to start? I am a crazy, bohemian mom, wife, friend and social media devotee. I'm the Digital Marketing and Design Guru at Southern Growth Studio, which basically means I wear lots of different hats (everything from SEO, SEM, Social Media, brand management, etc). I love the work and the challenges working with new and changing technologies.

I'm also a complete geek. 100%. Down to the tips of my toes. I love Star Wars, Star Trek and all things geeky. About the only certifiable geek thing I can't get into is the new Battlestar. I don't know why. And don't hate me for it, I did give it an honest try.
