Taran has been noticeably saddened by her leaving the company. Reports say she was making six figures for her role at Taran Tactical and rubbing elbows with Hollywood elite. I was clearly very uneasy when it happened, and I am extremely embarrassed at how I reacted to the situation. My former employer took this video several years ago when I just turned 18 and very new to the industry.

I should have known better and stood firm against my former employer, but I did not. During my time with TTI, my former employer made many of these types of videos of me as well as other videos that were made of other women in and around the company. These videos are very inappropriate and personal to those involved.

I am disappointed in myself for not doing what I knew to be right for myself and for the others pressured into these acts. To the other girls in and around TTI that felt pressured as I was, I am sorry that I could not find the strength to stand up for us.

My former employer has made public statements that these videos were consensual and even planned and scripted. I can assure everyone that I never planned to be sexually harassed or sexually manipulated in the workplace.

Looking back, my former employer clearly planned and scripted these events, but I was never involved or consulted about what I did or did not want to do. Paying along as little as possible was simply a condition of my employment, and I now see how inappropriate and illegal it was for an employer to behave in such a way.

I am learning and healing from this experience. In the future, I hope to have a better understanding of the mistakes I made and the poor decisions that led up to the moments captured in these videos. Moving forward, I will undoubtedly be a stronger person as I continue to work hard to grow my own brand of gear and equipment for this amazing industry, and I will continue to train hard to be the best in the business.

I will be a stronger woman and lead by example for young women like myself who have experienced unwanted and inappropriate sexual advances in the workplace. Most of all, I promise to be a beacon of hope for those to afraid to speak out. Thank you to everyone who has shown me so much love and support.

Butler said that he was a natural shooter from the start, but his competitive career officially began in He attended his first match with a Glock 21 pistol — which had a lower capacity than the pistols of the other competitors and required an additional reload.

After that initial 7th place finish, Butler won every match he entered for the next two years, which were all pistol-shooting competitions. Butler, who had gotten used to winning, was livid, but he pressed on. He noticed that most of the competitors were going into the prone position to shoot the farthest rifle targets, a distance Butler estimated to be about yards. Figuring that he had nothing to lose after the shotgun stages, Butler shot standing.

The second place time for that stage was 25 seconds — Butler finished in It was the first of many wins, but also some heartbreaking losses. He was leading by a large margin about points after 14 stages, but there were still two to go. The 15th stage required each competitor to rest their rifle on the roof of a car while shooting.

The bullets were impacting the torso target at the top of the head when Butlet was aiming for the A zone. He suffered eight penalty misses, ultimately losing the match by five points — which he equates to about half a second.

At his next 3-Gun Nationals appearance, the cross pin holding the trigger group in his shotgun broke during the final stage, and the entire trigger group fell out of his gun.

He ended up losing by a few points. These losses taught Butler the importance of having high-quality gear and knowing the gear that you have. InButler finally broke through. At the time, Bennie Cooley was the reigning 3-Gun champion. He was unstoppable with a long-range rifle, and Butler was unstoppable with a pistol, so the shotgun stage was where they met in the middle.

First up was the pistol stages, and Cooley shot first. He was slower but had no penalties. Butler shot three or four seconds faster but suffered penalties — the pressure had gotten to him, and he was upset with himself. Great, throwing away the Nationals againhe thought. On the next stage, Butler again beat Cooley on time — but, also again, he shot a hostage.

At that point, Butler had to shake off the pressure and focus solely on the shooting.
