    Default Women And Guns

    One thing this forum doesn't have is a section devoted entirely to women and guns, and defensive use of guns by women. That's too bad, I think its an important aspect in the world of firearms, the good use of guns by women. In some ways, I think its almost more important for women to get into guns than it is for men. The world of guns is largely a man's world although that is changing, it changed quite a bit during the Obama administration when apparently there were lots of women who became first time gun owners. If you ask me, more women should get into it.

    i agree that more women should get into firearms.......i disagree with a separate sub-forum.

    firearms are the great equalizer regardless of sex, size, strength, etc........it levels the playing field......

    there may be some particular aspects that are peculiar to women only......that is when the guys chime in as to what their wives have/do/have tried......

    on a side note i do not think that there has been any husband/wife co-members here that i can think of.......and doubt a new forum would help bring in more.......

    What do you mean? There's a thread some 250+ pages long devoted entirely to women and guns...

    This forum simply doesn't have the traffic for it. It 99% sausage fest up in here.

    This forum actually treats women decently but there are a lot of male-dominated forums out there who don't. It's a little tricky for a woman to jump into the man-caves like this.

    A couple of women have posted here in the past but have proven to be psychotic and they didn't last long. But there have been some amazing women who have posted here and done well. Most of the time, women will read such forums because they need to glean whatever information they can but they don't feel up to posting and asking questions.

    Setting up a women only section of the board would attract more men (who would get banned) and it's just not a workable setup.

    FWIW, there are women in other forums but as mentioned, they are few and far between.

    I would like to see more women become regulars here. I think we, as a group, are respectful towards the women that visit and have questions. Granted the ladies may not care for the Gals and Guns thread, but they are welcome to start a Guys and Guns thread.
