As for Women in general, I think it's good that women find interest in a mainly Guy sport. Just, Better not hope to take it over! Cuz we guys tend to be protective

You favor pistols?
A female friend of mine is a champion rifle shooter. Her boyfriend has been asked to be on the Olympics skeet team, and she puts him in the dirt on rifle.

Look - firearms are TOOLS. They are not muscle or sinew or brains. ANYONE can use them, and use them well when taught properly, and if SOMEONE can not, then there is a better design to be brought to market and a niche for it.

Guns are not a "Guy Sport". Particularly for women, guns can be a MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH.

Go eat your (hunted) crow.

My advice to you: Take more girls to the range, ask them to invite their friends, and applaud them every time they out-shoot you.

I applaud you for your donations of time, firearms, ammo and attitude. Attitude being the key word.

The world needs more men with your attitude! If there were, there would be far more women and children confidently using firearms in this day!

Back in the pioneer days we didn't have this problem. *Everyone* was expected to shoot well as soon as they could hold a firearm level. What happened?
Why am I not a certified instructor and break even financially on my endevors?

Well, lets see, I guess because I'm blessed with both a very good job so I don't really need to "break even" and a wife who understands my passion. I choose to see my dontations of time and money "cost of ammo", as money well spent in the endevor of turning non gun folks on to our culture and creating pro gun voters in the process. If I'm going to be out shooting anyway, it's no skin off my nose to pick up 4 more boxes of ammo and invite a friend or co worker to join me.

I suppose over the years I've come to the conclusion that a fun day of shooting will create a "convert" far more effectively than ranting from the Second Ammendment Soap Box.

Pretty please?

I was joking when I said that they could almost outshoot me, Truth is they probbaly could. They grew up hunting, I haven't so far.

True, Guns are not a "Guy sport", But I never said that they were. I stated that most shooters are guys.

I dont go to a range. When I go to shoot I have a tree infront of the earth bank that makes up our ponds side. The distances are guesstimated (step trick). Usually 10,30 or 100yds.

And as for the Off-topic thing, Not sure if you had anything for that. But I mean nothing bad by that besides that, If I found someone messing with a few of the guns I RARELY EVER, shoot, They would know not to EVER do it again, Not that I dont trust people but, Those are Irreplaceable..

No Hard feelings? Hopefully more women join the fun. They don't know what their missing!

Thank you so much for that!

My fault - I completely misread your thread. If you read this place from my pov, particularly the pm's, you'd understand my perspective. I've met with some hostility.

And if I read your pm's, maybe I'd understand your perspective better.

Please do encourage women to shoot at every op. You said that "most shooters are guys", and statistically speaking that may be true, but it's not true in my own circles. I know about an equal number of each, and due to my personal efforts the women shooters do slightly outnumber the guy shooters in my realm. Encourage more women in your realm, both to shoot and to join the forum, too.

Again - Thanks so much!

((((((((((((((((((((((APPLAUSE)))))))))))))))))))) ))))))

That's very cool. Thank you so much for that. You and your wife are touching more lives than you will ever know.
