    Is there not a women's forum here? Am I missing it? Just seems like there should be. My wife is new to concealed carry and it would be nice for her to have a place to go for info...

    Geez, first Condoleezza Rice & Darla Moore are welcomed into The Augusta National Golf Club, and now this? What's next, Oprah's new Book Club for Men? Guns, holsters & ammo are gender neutral. Julie Golob can shoot circles around anyone here. Other than maybe "Pistol Purses" I don't see how the content would be any different in the Women's Forum.

    We are an equal work or equal pay kinda place as far as I can tell. There are many women here who can answer your questions, and men that may be able to help as well, but might otherwise avoid the fairer genders forum. That is what ghost tracker meant

    While there is no specific forum for women moderator Limatunes has a stickied thread concerning women and carry issues. A search for Limatunes will pop it right up for your wife.

    Tell her to come on in. You won't meet friendlier or more helpful men and/or women! Besides, if she has a gun... what's she afraid of? ;)

    I actually like that there's not a separate forum just for women. There is the sticky thread mentioned above that is for many women specific things but honestly most things are the same for guys and gals, except the flashbang and purses. Whether its how to get an IWB to fit just right or what to use when jogging - our issues and experiences are pretty universal and we can all help each other without it being a boy/girl thing, IMO. And if I have a woman specific question I've got no qualms with throwing it out there in the right category and saying "ladies - what's worked for you with..." and I know I'll get some "well my wife does..." and that's cool too. I've been on some forums where I wasn't comfortable as a female, but this sure isn't one of them - best group of folks I've found on the net!

    I agree! I read and have learned a lot from the forums. I mostly post in the "Back Porch" section because I have nothing to offer as far as helping with gun questions, I'm still learning myself. However, I really like the people here because they're smart, funny and generally interesting to talk to.

    So, tell your wife to jump in, ask questions and be part of it.

    The forum is open to any thread about defensive use of firearms and related equipment, training, etc. In that sense, it's gender neutral. Got a topic that, say, inquires about holsters/belts most suitable for a woman? Post it. Got statements to make regarding the woman's take on things? Let 'er rip. Works very well.

    Of course, in an open forum (as with life) it's entirely likely a given thread is going to draw comments from the general crowd as well. Not entirely unexpected or problematic, really.

    IMO: if your thread is absolutely female-specific, simply state so in the lead-in and/or thread title. Should be all you need to help filter the participants accordingly, if that's going to make a difference in the thread.

    As mentioned no specific forum, but here is the sticky thread others have referenced: The Official Female Carry Reference Thread

    The Official Female Carry Reference Thread

    Jeeze guys, while I do agree that there isn't much difference between gender when it comes to carry, a link to the female thread would have been a nice gesture.

    Dooger, set her up with an account so she can learn from this site and pose her own questions when she has them!

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
