Women and Handgun Shooting In Boerne, TX

Women Competitive Shooter Numbers are GrowingThe history of women and Handguns has its roots dating back to the 1800’s and Annie Oakley, that is a yes she was a real person, and was one of the best trick shot artist of all time! Jump forward to the mid to late 1980’s when the first publications dedicated to Women handgun shooters first appeared.

It these early years in Boerne, TX and everywhere in the U.S. there were a lot of misconceptions within the shooting industry about not only Women in general but also about the number of Women interested in the shooting sports. There was even talk within the shooting industry about not advertising to women as women would not understand the mechanics of firearms nor the nomenclature. One famous quote we found from the period: "Female gun owners are being cast as potential saviors of the pro-gun movement. Think carefully, ladies. Our combined influence can work to reshape American society. What do we want to accomplish and where do we want to start?"

In Boerne, TX or anywhere in the U.S. there were no firearms manufactured in the U.S. specifically for women until Smith & Wesson produced the Lady Smith in 1989. The Lady Smith inspired other manufacturers to produce other firearms which were primarily handguns, but eventually an assortment of long guns that were designed specifically for women. You can now find holsters of all types in Boerne, TX that are specifically designed by and for women. Every major holster maker now makes products for women, their body types and for their accessory apparel.

In Boerne, TX and all across the country there are now women shooting clubs staring up, there are several websites dedicated to women only, there are classes taught by women that are NRA certified instructors, and women are now ranked as some of the best shooters in U.S. and in international shooting competitions.

The Evolution In Boerne, TX of Women Handgun Shooting

Women and Handgun Shooting has been on the rise since the mid to late 1980’s. Although Hollywood has been charged with glorifying guns in a negative light they did produce movies that actually had a positive effect on the Firearms manufacturers and the general public which showed women could use firearms competently. Believe it or not movies such as "Thelma & Louise," and who can forget the fictional character Sara Connor in "Terminator 2” had positive influences on industry and public thinking alike.

In Boerne, TX and in other states it is interesting how society and industry think and act and can then reverse their way of thinking when the Truth about a subject such as Women and Handgun shooting is debated and the issue becomes truly understood. It was not easy on the Industry side as it was thought that women were too soft to want to shoot, and then anti-gunners started the only line of attack they could think of when it came to women; they wrongly thought that the manufacturers and pro-gunners are "scaring" women into gun ownership. Amazing how with education and the truth the times have thankfully changed! US Precision Defense will help sort out the Truth about Women and Handgun Shooting.

Boerne, TX , A treasure nestled in the magnificent setting of the Texas Hill Country, Boerne (pronounced “Bur-nee”) is only minutes north of San Antonio, via Interstate 10.

German immigrants first settled this land near the cool waters of the Cibolo Creek over 150 years ago. Boerne’s beginnings are evident in the old stone buildings with narrow windows, steep gables, outside stairways and gardens. Today, more than 140 historic structures remain. The city’s friendly people show a deep respect for their cultural and ancestral heritage.

A stroll down Haupstrasse (Main Street in German) through Boerne’s charming historic district offers a world of specialty shops including great antiques, fine home accessories, unique gift items, trendy boutiques, jewelry and art galleries.

Intermingled among the shopping, visitors experience the inviting aromas from a hometown bakery or “catch up on the latest” at one of the local coffee shops. While taking in the ambiance of this thriving small town, visitors may choose to relax at one of the local wine bars or enjoy a brew at the brewhaus on the creek.

The cypress-lined Cibolo Creek flows through downtown Boerne and continues on to the nationally recognized Cibolo Nature Center. Hiking trails and a boardwalk allow visitors to explore 100 acres with four distinct ecosystems - grassland, marshland, woodland and river bottom.

Year round parades, festivals and cultural events fill the air with music and merriment. The Kendall County Fair, Chocolate Walk, Berges Fest, Wings Over Boerne, Parade of Artists, Cibolo Songs & Stories, Abendkonzerte, Weihnachts Fest, Dickens on Main, Boerne Market Days and the Key to the Hills Rod Run are some of the activities that draw people from near and far away.

Boerne, the county seat of Kendall County, is bound by Cibolo Creek, Interstate Highway 10, and U.S. Highway 87. The city is some 30 miles northwest of San Antonio in the southern part of the county. In 1849, a group of German colonists from Bettina camped on the north side of Cibolo Creek, about a mile west of present-day Boerne.

They called their new community Tusculum, after Cicero's home in ancient Rome. In 1852, Gustav Theissen and John James laid out the town's site and changed the name to Boerne in honor of Ludwig Börne, a German poet and publicist. Ironically, Mr. Börne never visited the town that was named after him.

Mostly the summer months are dry as the region is too far east of the monsoonal trough, but remnants of hurricanes tracking inland can produce very heavy rainfall indeed, as in the wettest month of July 2002 when a whopping 28.43 inches (722.1 mm) fell and the first five days as much as 25.47 inches or 646.9 millimetres.

Winter rain usually occurs via Pacific storms redeveloping over the Gulf of Mexico and directing a moist southeasterly flow: in the extreme case of the winter of 1991/1992 14.42 inches or 366.3 millimetres fell between December 19 and 22 and a total of 29.44 inches (747.8 mm) for the three winter months; however four years later the whole winter saw no more than 0.96 inches (24.4 mm).

Boerne came into being as an offshoot of the Texas Hill Country Free Thinker Latin Settlements, resulting from the Revolutions of 1848 in the German states. Those who came were Forty-Eighters, intellectual liberal abolitionists who enjoyed conversing in Latin and who believed in utopian ideals that guaranteed basic human rights to all. They reveled in passionate conversations about science, philosophy, literature, and music The Free Thinkers first settled Castell, Bettina, Leningen. and Schoenburg in Llano County.
