    Great,,,, and about the average of our lady friends,,,
    3 out 10 close women friends have the CWP ,,,,
    unfortunately my wife & daughter are still not among
    the group,,,,, but I am working on them,,,, getting them
    to shoot with me whenever possible,,,, I believe they will
    come over,,,, both are good shots,,, and could pass without
    a lot of effort ,,,,, a lot of women just do not see it as a female
    activity,,,,, but it is changing. They have been taught,,,, its
    their husbands that SHOULD PROTECT THEM.

    So I guess this brings up new ways to meet women besides accidently ramming your shopping cart into theirs at the Grocery store,and probably a really good reason to quit ramming into their shopping carts,they may be armed

    My last trip to the range there were three lanes going and I was the only guy. My wife started shooting this past year and one of her good friends is wanting her to "show her how to shoot". I think it's a great thing.

    This is a very good thing. More responsible gun owners, less victims.

    I'm slowly steering my wife in this direction.

    They are doing it for the same reason more women are buying Harley's because they can, world has changed.
    More women are taking responsibility for their own life and safety just as more men are.

    Yep, this is one good turn from tradition. One of my daughters has a Walther PPS 9mm, another just last week bought a CZ 100 9mm. Both are talking about getting their CWP. Oldest daughter still hates guns, after all, they're evil and kill people you know. How she got that way growing up in my house I'll never know. My son likes plain and simple and will probably be a Glock man. Oh well, 2 out of 2 ain't all bad.

    My wife's waiting on her cwp and we're going to the armory in the next couple of weeks (a women thing) so that she can pick out her edc and I can pick up my mossy for home defense.
    Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.

    OK, so 23% own their own gun. I think this is a great trend. But how many women have access to weapons and know how to use them? A much larger percentage than that I would think. Hopefully, reports like this get the ANTI'S knickers in a wad and get some lowlifes to rethink their profession.

    GOOD ON YA LADIES
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Power to the women when it comes to protecting themselves and not totally relying on men who may not be there all of the time.

    Gotta love this and any news where more people love guns and the second amendment. Less chance to take it all away! This makes the world a safer place for sure. I know my wife is loving shooting. Gun of choice: SA EMP 9 mm
    It's not a problem til they make it one!
