It these early years in Schertz, 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?"

The Evolution In Schertz, 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.

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.
