Interesting read that is no surprise to anyone here.

In answer to the question "Why?"- because nothing says NO quite as well as a 12 g.

Good find Jager. I think all citizens should be familiar in the use of arms.

Good post, Jagermeister.

Smart ladies arm themselves against the violent scumbags who prey on our society. My first wife took a gun handling course taught by a state trooper. That state trooper was the responder when my wife killed a home invader who lusted after her body.

Thanks for sharing. I grew up shooting with my Dad and Grandpa and our 9 year old daughter has a 10/22 and knows about gun safety.

Haha well put.

I would also add that many of us enjoy it as a hobby in addition to self defense. I leave all my stress on the range when I go shoot for a few hours, twice a week. It's cathartic, just like archery is for me, as well. A lot of people don't get that, but hey, their loss.

Why are people so fascinated about women carrying? The other day I went shooting with my brother and I felt like I was Megan Fox at a football game.

Simply because it has traditionally been a "man thing". I mostly go shooting alone. For a woman to go into the range without a man certainly gets one some funny looks. I can't tall if they're looks of admiration of looks of 'what you doing here'? I don't care. I just start shooting at that target and show them 'who's boss'. LOL
