Handguns for Carry
Buying a handgun to carry for personal defense is an important mission. You should take your time and do lots of research or you might end up with an expensive case of buyer’s remorse! Thankfully, there are lots of good handgun options available today.
Women and Handguns
Women are often very good handgun shooters and a fast-growing segment in handgun and accessory sales, handgun carry movement, and the shooting sports. Women tend to be good students because they listen and are eager to learn. About two-thirds of our students are women. I think this trend is great! We work hard to make our handgun classes as enjoyable, informative, and stress-free, as possible; however, 1st safety, then everything else.
Which gun do many women prefer?
It is not uncommon for women to arrive at the pistol range with the “wrong” gun. Most handguns women fired in their younger days had been designed, understandably, with a man in mind—huge slab-steel revolvers and M1911s—and, they were most definitely purchased by a man. Many handguns that women have today were borrowed from a man or a man recommended the gun for them to purchase. However, these days, thanks to the thousands of models on the market, it usually comes down to the gun’s intended purpose.
