Boyd Alumna Karissa Neff ’04 Featured in VEGAS INC

Boyd alumna Karissa Neff ’04 was featured in a VEGAS INC business article about Gun Play Vegas, Nevada’s first and only female-owned firearms training company. Neff and UNLV grad Sara Shertz started Gun Play Vegas.

The Dec. 5 article titled “These Las Vegas businesswomen take their (gun)shots seriously,” explains the motivation - “sexism and heckling in a male-dominated industry” - behind the women’s decision to start their own company, as well as details the services the company offers.

“Firearms training is intimidating enough without being berated by impersonal and militarized teaching tactics,” Neff said.
