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 Socorro , 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 Socorro , 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 Socorro , 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. 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.

Socorro , TX, The City of Socorro is right in the middle of the West Texas portion of the Mission Valley Trail. To the east of the City of Socorro is the San Elizario Mission, to the west, the Ysleta Mission.

This all came about after the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, in northern New Mexico. The Spanish were driven from the north and moved into the area with their Native American Allies. Two years later they built Nuestra Señora de la Limpia Concepción del Socorro Mission. But the first permanent mission structure was swept away in the Great Rio Grande Flood in 1744.

Determined settlers built a second church and it too was washed away in 1829 when the Rio Grande flooded and receding waters cut a new channel.

The present Socorro mission was opened in 1843. Eventually a struggling and gritty community of 1,100 settlers built up around the mission.

The City of Socorro was actually a part of Mexico from 1821 to 1848, but as the result of the bloody US?Mexican War, it went over to Texas. The secret to it’s lasting development were it’s “acequias.” They provided water for crops and vineyards.

The growing City of Socorro was derailed in 1881 when the railroads laid their track all the way to El Paso and by passed Socorro shifting the political power to El Paso. In fifty years Socorro’s population was 2,123 but bigger farms and industrialization of the farming business dropped the population to 350 by 1941. The resolute citizens were determined to stay in the area for decades. Then, suddenly in 1960s and 1970s, the population grew rapidly. Un scrupulous developers built homes in residential subdivisions that did not have paved streets, water, or sewer lines. The City of Socorro residents again raised up against the builders of these colonias—.

The fight had to refocus against El Paso County who wanted to take over the City of Socorro. In 1985, the threat of annexation of the entire town by El Paso sparked an uproar that resulted in the reincorporation of Socorro. The unwavering Socorro residents blocked El Paso’s plan to annex the city and Socorro has continued to grow with the same determination and grit.

"May our country be always successful, but whether successful or otherwise, always right." "America, with the same voice which spoke herself into existence as a nation, proclaimed to mankind the inextinguishable rights of human nature, and the only lawful foundations of government."
