Pistol Packin' PaulaPISTOL PACKIN' PAULA is not just the girl next door.  When Pistol Packin' Paula gets ready for work, she grabs her nickel-plated .45 Cimarrons and her bull whips - not a briefcase.  She twirls and shoots her gun like Annie Oakley.  She cracks her bull whips like Calamity Jane.

Growing up in Connecticut, Paula didn't give much thought to cowgirlin', guns or horses, but that would soon change...

After graduating from stunt school, with $50 in her pocket, Paula headed west to follow her dream of becoming a stuntwoman.  In 1990, she landed a job as a stuntwoman at Rawhide Western Town in Scottsdale, Arizona.  This is where she began twirling guns professionally and became Pistol Packin' Paula, western performer.

Paula is the only woman in the U.S. who twirls real guns professionally.  She twirls two .45 Cimarron revolvers and twirls them into her fancy custom-made holster by Alfonso of Hollywood.  Her one-woman show includes gun twirling, cracking bullwhips and then she caps it off with a foot-stomping wild west dance that puts a showgirl to shame.  She has now expanded her skills to include her horses Jake and Tonto.  Her performances, both live and on television, have been enjoyed around the world.  Paula also performs around the country portraying Annie Oakley in special events and Wild West Shows.

Besides all of her talents, Paula is working on production of her own television show "Paula & Friends" with an animation "The Adventures of Pistol Packin Paula and her horse Jake" so look for it in the future.

Paula has received several awards in her talents.  In 1994 and 2003, the Wild West Arts Club in Las Vegas, NV presented her with awards in the International World Championship for gun twirling.  In 1999 she received another award in the World Championship for Gun Spinning at Wild Bill Hickok Days in Deadwood, South Dakota.  In March of 2006, the Wild West Arts Club presented her with the award for World Champion in the International World Championship for Gun Spinning in Claremore, Oklahoma.

No wonder Pistol Packin' Paula is "The Best Lady Gun Spinner" in the U.S.!
