Babbs in the Woods: WON Guns featured at The Daily Caller

Frankly, it came as a surprise. Here we are at The WON, doing our business of finding news, reviews and stories about you — outdoor women — and we get a request from Mike Piccione, editor of the Guns and Gear section at The Daily Caller, to pick up some of our posts. Especially the ones about guns. How could we refuse? First of all, The Daily Caller, edited by political pundit Tucker Carlson, is highly respected and its traffic? Through the roof: double-digit millions of uniques per month, I’m told. Besides that, we’ve always had a great working relationship with Mike, ever since he successfully edited Guns and Patriots at Eagle Publishing.

So, our stories and reviews will now be read by another market, most likely that mainstream market where millions of women are still pondering how (or why) to learn to hunt or shoot. And, we’re delighted, just delighted to be in this position. Recently, Mike not only picked up my Chicks with Guns interview with Lindsay McCrum, which is a very hot topic, but also, Julie Golob’s New Year’s post that ran here earlier that week.

See Julie's teaser in the top left slider? So sweet!

Check out The Daily Caller. We think you’ll find it refreshing and edgy. Something you don’t always see in mainstream publications or those other ones that are constantly preaching to the same choir.

And, thanks, Mike!

    This is great news for The WON! And shooting for sport and/or self-defense is going mainstream, and growing numbers of women are participating. Congratulations!

    And Julie’s excellent New Year’s resolutions post is going viral, with many people posting links to it on Facebook and elsewhere. Can’t wait to see The WON Guns at SHOT Show 2012.
