Gun use and training in women has increased in recent years with target shooting becoming a favorite sport, this according to the National shooting sports foundation.

The number of women going to the shooting range continues to increase.

I teach women how to shoot. I teach handgun basics like proper grip on a gun, the proper stance, everything that they need to know on how to shoot safely and properly.

A sport originally dominated by men is rapidly increasing in popularity amongst women.

Women like to shoot not only for self-protection but as a sport.

It’s something that more and more women need to do and really promote it. I wanted to all my life, and with what’s going on in the world, I think every woman ought to be able to protect herself. – Judy Adams
