    As a woman who carries and loves the Steelers... I will tell you that my husband agrees with you.


    I have been finding a lot more women wanting to get training and take up the sport, too. It's part of the reason I have gotten certified in a couple of disciplines (still working on the rifle cert).

    I tell people that I believe if you have a gun in your home - whether it's yours, your partner's, or your parents' - you should know how to safely handle it. Even if you never intend to use it. It's just common sense to understand it, if it's under your roof.

    My wife telling me she wanted to learn to shoot and have a gun of her own is why I'm a gun owner again after a 20-year absence.

    <---- Not a sister, but I DO support them in almost* all their endeavors, whether or not they shoot better than myself.



    * anti gun endeavors and anti birth control endeavors I do NOT support.
    Be safe, be prepared, and carry on!

    I'll be taking a lady friend to the range for the first time here in a couple of weeks. First Saturday the weather's a little warmer and not windy in the morning.
