    I thinks women since that trouble is on the way, getting ready just gives some peace of mind.

    Exactly.

    People with a clue can see a big storm on the horizon.

    It's coming.

    Works for me. Chicks with guns are hot.

    I lived in Great Falls Mt (Malmstrom AFB) in the early 70's. It seemed like everyone was packing then.

    It's a good thing , women bring a positive and different blend to carrying . Plus i would think they are much more a target for creeps . I plan on more self defense type training with the wife .

    Not only are they training up, but they are raising the bar on skill levels.
    I noticed that many that shoot with us are now shooting both left and right handed, They are acquiring targets quickly and hitting the mark.

    The other big change will come when these women serve on Juries. The more trained women in the community the more influence they will have on raising children and law enforcement.

    Very positive story in my book.

    My grown daughter was as anti-gun as they get until I took her on the range. Once she started putting that 9mm in the chest of the target and realized how good it felt having the ability to defend herself, all that changed. Education is the cure for ignorance.

    At the risk of revealing some of my personal proclivities and sounding extremely chauvanistic I remember when "traning a woman up" had a whole different meaning.

    I think it's a wonderful thing that women are getting training. There are more single parent households than ever in our history and the vast majority of them are matriarchal.
