Precisely why I DO talk to women about guns and self defense. Took the laundry to the laundromat to dry (dryer isn't working). When I went back to pick it up, I got into a conversation with a lady there about being aware of her surroundings since she said she didn't normally use that laundromat. I am always very aware when I am there, especially after dark. I told her I carry a gun for self defense and that I had a CPL. She surprised me and said she did also and has a .380 but doesn't carry. We had a very nice conversation about guns and self defense. She said she hadn't shot her gun in years so I gave her my phone number and said I would be happy to go to Champion Arms with her some time to shoot. She has shot her gun before, but not for a long time. So hopefully I will hear from her, we will go to the range, and she will begin to take her personal protection more seriously. I LOVE doing this. If me talking to a woman makes her think, makes her more aware of her surroundings, makes her want to protect herself and be one less rape or murder victim, then I am happy. Some I probably never will know if they did anything for self protection. This lady seemed serious so I hope she will call. I am no expert, but I do know enough to take a woman to the range, teach her about gun safety and get her started on the basics. I also encouraged her to read Dave Workman's book and know Washington state gun laws. I was CC at the time, I had been cutting grass and washing the car today. I carry almost 100% of the time, mostly CC, but I am slowly trying to OC more. I will be OC Saturday.
