    My daughter is wanting to go hunting and I am glad that my love for hunting and firearms will be left with her.

    "...And the other is that when you get outside of the blue-state cities, everybody has a gun.”
    And you know what chickie? Inside them blue-state cities where guns are frowned upon, mostly the criminals have 'em. And, there's a whole lot less crime outside them blue-state cities, too! Just a koinkidink? Nah... prolly not.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    There is a big difference between owning a firearm and "packing heat".

    Heck, lots of the CHL holders across the country don't regularly carry every day.

    I like the idea of that many women owning guns, I just which that more of them would get licensed and carry daily. Mine does.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    You have that right. I have had three guys at different times ever so proudly show me their CHLs while completely unarmed. My standard response, of course: "If anyone tries any funny business with you, just show them that card".

    You know, I never actually revealed to my girlfriend about me having my gun concealed on my first date then. Then on the phone on one of the days that we talked, she mentioned some acquaintances that also CC w/ a permit and she said that they are normal and present no problems to her. I then said that I carry too and she was surprised but understanding at the same time.

    I know in my old IWLA chapter there were several women who were active in our shooting sports programs, and more joining all the time.

    My wife has finally shown an interest in shooting, and has gone to the range with me a few times. I bought her a .38 revolver and she said she likes it. I haven't convinced her to consider CCW yet, however. Give her time, I'm sure she'll come around.

    My wife personally owns six guns although we probably have five times as many we simply call ours. So she's solidly in that group.

    The article was about women who own guns, not necessarily those who carry them
