    "Nothing comes between a girl and her gun."

    The National Sporting Goods Association says nearly 47% more women are shooting today compared with 10 years ago, and a Gallup Poll last year found almost one in four American women own at least one gun.

    The number of women at NRA shooting clinics has skyrocketed in the last decade. Gun ranges hold ladies' nights and enrollment in one women's conceal-carry class in Oklahoma is reportedly up 400%.

    I think its great that women are more involved with firearms then ever before. But the "ladies night" thing really annoys me.
    One of the local ranges close to me has 2 ladies nights every week.
    Wednesdays ladies shoot ALL DAY for $1. While men are $17/hr

    Friday is so called "couples night" where the women shoot free all day as long as they are accompanied by a male companion paying full rate at $17/hr and must buy ammo from the range.

    That would be great but I highly doubt 1 in 4 women own/shoot a gun. I'd be surprised if it was 1 in 20 :eek:

    I agree this is annoying. It wouldn't go over big if it were the other way around and men were offered a free day, would it? And I'm a woman!! I don't even like the "couples night". It should just be 'half price' night.

    That is a funny statement..........especially after I looked at your user name. LOL I know who 'the boss' is. :D At least she lets you shoot them.
