    Doesn't seem to be a lot of us women posting much. Hope that starts to change.

    80-90% of my business is ladies. I teach ladies defensive handgun and self defense in the Eugene area. Why I like working with women is there's 0 ego and they are very supportive of each other. Many of the women I work with are survivors of DV, most will out shoot me very soon.

    I was at my local range yesterday for about 3 hours. I saw four (five if I count the 8 yr old young lady shooting rifle) other women during that time. I'm always pleased when I can out shoot the guys. Yesterday I was playing with my 22. I haven't put very many rounds through it yet and I still have some adjustments to the sights. The guy next to me wasn't doing very well with his 40. I think he started trying a little more after I pulled out my 1911 and took out the red. I love my Sig 1911 Nickel (45 ACP). I practice with it often and carry it quite often.

    A lot of us come here for information, you being welcome here goes without saying (at least from me anyway).

    This is a great forum to learn and ask questions, the internet can of course provide a lot of info beyond this forum, but sometimes it is nice to here feedback from someone local on something you are seeking information on.

    I’ve been conceal carrying for 7 years, shoot in local competitions at the range I attend and have taught/trained others how to become more competent shooters. I’m still working on my fiancé to carry regularly, I’ve got her into purse carry so far and weve been trying on body carry.

    I started her out with rifles and a .22 LR BCG in the AR15. She loves going to the range together because I don’t treat her like a child, and I have effectively supported her, patiently and positively through her growth as a shooter.

    If you have questions feel free to ask, but you are most definitely welcome here, as are all other freedom and second amendment loving folks, regardless of sex.

    Welcome @Cheez_Monkey and congratulations for resurrecting a zombie thread! :D
    Possibly the tepid response is due to your user name, as I vaguely recall not much response to my introductory post.
    Great community, lots of support, a plethora of knowledge, and people who are real, who you may actually get to meet.
    Not sure if I can post here, as I ticked the male box. [eta] well, that worked!

    Conjecture. Typically the noun monkey or in my case, idiot, when applied to people, is regarded as derogatory. Is there a tale behind your choice?

    Wow, really? I like monkeys. And I love the smoking monkey pic. To me, it's just an animal, and a great one. And they are funny and intelligent. And it's a name I call MYSELF. The world, how it has changed

    I was Dirty Harriet. I shed the tough girl name. That was also my humor showing.

    I think most of us just grin and bear it in the main sections. Not a lot of females here. It can be more informative and actually a little fun having to remind the regulars that you’re a female. Only gripe is grips. Finding a firearm that fits can be challenging, but when you find one you get to refer all the guy’s wives to it :p:D.
