Women and Handgun Shooting In Longview, 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!

It these early years in Longview, 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 Longview, 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 Evolution In Longview, 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 Longview, 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.
