    Tit for Tat - Women driving up gun sales (driving the NOW Nuts, no less)

    ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – As St. Louis prepares to welcome tens of thousands of gun enthusiasts, you might be surprised who the NRA says is their largest growing demographic.

    It’s women. And a recent survey by the National Shooting Sports Foundation found 61 percent of retailers saw an increase of female customers from 2009 to 2010.

    ...“We’re running concealed carry classes to teach women how to carry on the street,” said Schoenbeck.

    Starting May 1st, On Target is offering woman’s only night at the range.

    God Bless em! And in a strong nuclear family, they got your back!

    I can beleive it. Lots of manufacturers have started catering to woman. Smaller,easier to carry guns, even pink guns that seem to be selling very well.

    I had a CHL class for just for women, with 5 women instructors each teaching a segment of the class. We usually do 2 a year, and each time its been full and its been very well received.

    Eighteen years ago when we started teaching, we would have a class of 45 and we might have 3 women.

    Now, its about half and half.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    That is powerful. Powerful for many reasons, not the least of which is the vote. I like empowerment!

    It's about time they took notice, now if those retailers would just stop giving out such bad advice on handgun selection.

    Last few gun shows I have noticed many more women purchasing firearms than I have seen in previous years.

    Long overdue. Women are the most vulnerable to violence from companions and criminals. It is a great development. The cowards in society are running out of defenseless victims. When the old, the women, and the law abiding are armed, what is a loser to do.

    The majority of real estate sales persons are ladies. Any lady that goes unarmed with a complete stranger to an empty house is a statistic waiting to happen.

    Many women are finding out what this woman has known for decades. The best protection is the one you provide yourself. These are dangerous times and I don't see it getting better any time soon. A woman can't depend on having the husband or male defender around at all times and besides....aren't two heads better than one? So it stands to reason that two guns are better than one.

    I love it. You might not all be Lord of the Rings fans, but I love this quote from Eowyn: "The women of this country learned long ago, those without swords can still die upon them."

    I would love to have my wife take one of the multi-day handgun courses with me. Learning to work together as a family/team/unit would be awsome.

    This is becoming a nationwide trend.

    I have had a recent thread about the increased firearm sales in Jackson Co Ohio just a bit over the river from WV where I live. Women comprised the majority of the people purchasing handguns and guess what? For "Personal Protection" was the main reason.

    Many of these same women are taking classes and getting Ohio concealed carry permit too.
