Amy Way: Air Force to The Tactical Games

By: Dustin Wallace

To say I'm blown away by Amy is an understatement.

I was thrilled when she gave Faxon a shoutout on Instagram after she completed a successful competition at The Tactical Games. Then, as I scrolled through her profile to say thanks on behalf of Faxon Firearms... my respect grew even greater.

Amy joined the Air National Guard at 17 in Mississippi, and began her career as an aircraft mechanic working on a KC-135 Stratotanker.

Her career ebbed and flowed in such a way that she transferred to another unit with an Air Evacuation Squadron.

Being a civilian nurse already, she now gets to work missions getting wounded soldiers and airmen to the medical care they need.

But that's not where Amy's activity stops.

She's a Crossfit Coach and Competitor... AND a Tactical Games Athlete.

Amy's connection with Crossfit made Tactical Games an ideal landing spot (pun intended) for her entry into the competitive shooting world.

In our interview, Amy kept coming back to the idea of community.

She finds it in the military, in Crossfit, and in the competition shooting world of Tactical Games.

Amy uses a Faxon 10.5" Pencil Barrel and Lightweight BCG in her competition rifle, and has loved the accuracy and durability of both items.

In a recent Instagram post, Amy writes...

"I've shot this baby out past 300 yards accurately and have never had a single issue."

When scheduling our interview, we made sure to work around her kids getting home from school. That's right... a USAF Flight Nurse... Crossfit Coach... Competition Shooter... AND a mom. This woman is a superhero.

I hope you enjoy our chat on the podcast!
