I ran across this site a couple of weeks ago and wanted to pass it along because I have had many conversations with women who are interested in exploring the “firearm” lifestyle but don’t know where to start. Well if you are such a women reading this blog this may be a good place to start.
Why Did I Create The Well Armed Woman As A Resource For Women Gun Owners?
When I began thinking about purchasing and carrying a gun several years ago, there was no single resource for a woman gun owner and shooter. I was frustrated and disappointed to discover that there were so few resources out there that provided straight forward and complete information and products geared specifically toward me as a woman gun owner in this male-driven industry. The information I did find was often condescending and sometimes downright insulting. They simply weren’t talking to me or meeting my needs as a woman interested in gun ownership. Now, The Well Armed Woman is the complete resource for the woman gun owner.
The greater my interest and passion for guns grew, the more I found that the women I knew and worked with responded with excited curiosity to my new enthusiasm. Women wanted to know more and couldn’t wait to try firing a gun! I began to realize that there was a great divide between women’s interest in guns and the male dominated “camo and ammo” firearm industry.
I’ll introduce you to the ins and outs of armed self-defense, gun ownership, gun safety, shooting skills and products for women shooters. We’ll discuss everything from permits to holsters and we’ll do it in a candid and concise manner. I created The Well Armed Woman, LLC to be a complete resource without fluff or frills for women gun owners of all ages.

By the way my wife and daughter are among the Well Armed Women – And I love the fact that my wife is planning a girls night out that includes a couple of hours at a gun range. How awesome is that?
