    I am unable to past and copy for what ever reason, but this article should be circulated to the pro-gun and anti-gun groups. This article can be found in Cramer's Sock Website

    EXCERPT:
    These women are part of a larger trend in the United States - as debate surrounding gun violence in the United States has increased, so too have gun sales, according to industry experts. "When elected officials and those seeking office start talking about stricter laws, there is an increase in the public going out and purchasing firearms," Bazinet said. "It's a trend we have seen for a long time."

    In addition to marketing and self defense, women are becoming more active in target practice, with some using it for hunting as well.

    Target shooting and even a little friendly competition! These two reached their Distinguished Expert levels in the Winchester Marksmanship Qualification program during a recent 10-week long Ladies Pistol League I ran...:D
