    Hi, I'm a journalist working for UK Marie Claire working on a piece about the women of Open Carry.

    I'm in the middle of writing the article now, and it's going really well, but I'm also hoping to organise a (photo!) shoot of female Open Carriers on the 15th or 16th of April.

    I've spoken to women of all ages for the feature but for this particular photo I'm looking for women in their 20s and 30s who are happy to be photographed carrying out and about, and provide me with a few quotes about why they carry and what their rights mean to them.

    The shoot is going to be in Virginia (exact town to be confirmed) and we'll pay your travel expenses there, of course. If you're interested, or have any questions at all, please PM me or reply to this thread. You can read my earlier thread, which explains a little more about the article, under the thread I started called "Young Female and Armed?"

    Thanks so much to everyone on the site who's helped me, whether you've been suggesting stats or people it's all been invaluable. I'll make sure you get to see the finished product!

    All the best

    Good luck, Andreina.

    I'm not exactly Marie Claire material (over 50 and over weight <grin&gt, but I hope you get what you need.

    I took some photos at a concealed carry class last weekend that you might be able to use. I willneed approval from both the courseinstructor and the individual ladies before I can make them available.

    I haven't downloaded them yet so I'll see if there are any useable shots before I do anything else.

    Again, the pics are from a class where the students are using open holsters...not street scenes of open carry.

    Thanks for your kind offer - I think we've managed to sort out the shoot for now, and I think our picture ed might call in some stills of the 2a march, too.

    Thanks once again to everyone who's helped with this!
