More women are using guns for fun and protection

Ever-growing numbers of women are taking classes, buying firearms and learning to shoot, for self-defense, hunting or simply because shooting is fun and empowering. Many of these ladies are “women of a certain age” who have grown children and did not grow up in shooting families and are taking up shooting relatively late in life.

Cassandra Spratling of the Detroit Free Press has written a highly informative article about this trend.
