Yeah, PMS and firearms are a great combination.

Now, now, we all know how leftists feel about this. A woman strangled to death with her underwear is more virtuous than a woman standing over the bullet- riddled corpse of a thug.

My 8 year old girl can hit soda cans with her little BB gun at a few yards, I'm sure she could probably do the same with a little .22 if I we took her to the range. Im sure she'll be after the pistols in a few years, she's into all the rugged stuff. Ill make sure she's comfortable with a .45 before I let her leave the nest, but I imagine she'll be good at 100 yards before then.

If someone comes up from behind you and grabs you, how easily do you think you can pull a gun out? If you are at close range, and you hesitate with a self-defense weapon, it allows your attacker to grab it and use it against you, and if they're already attacking you, they probably won't hesitate to use it. That is, assuming they don't have a better weapon.

What's more, in close situations like these, non-lethal weapons are just as useful. You need to disable, not kill. You are not the executioner.

And don't forget to close one eye and tuck your elbow down. That's perfect.

Took my wife and two daughters (ages 8 and 11) to the range this morning. They had a lot of fun with the Marlin .22 rifle and the .22 Buckmark pistol. My wife and kids WILL understand how to use guns, and as soon as my daughters are old enough, will have their own carry pieces and CHL.

Got my wife to shoot the AR-15 (in .223) today for the first time, she was really scared of it at first, but after 10 rounds, wanted to shoot it some more.

Man, I love my wife.

It's a piston driven airgun. They don't kick towards you they kick away from you since the spring surges forward pushing compressed air through the barrel. I own a high powered one and speak from experience. That's why you can't use a regular rifle scope on them because their impact on the crosshairs is in the opposite direction ruining your expensive firearm scope. It's impossible to get "scoped" meaning you get hit around the eye from the scope hitting you in the face from the recoil of the gun.

This. Looks like the butt of the stock is firmly planted against her shoulder as well. I don't we'll see any broken teeth here.

I'm interested to see the social ramifications. I would hope that more widespread use of guns by women would result in the understanding that you don't use ANY weapon on ANYONE unless you MEAN to no matter WHO you are, man or woman.

Approximately 2/3 of rapes were committed by someone known to the victim.
73% of sexual assaults were perpetrated by a non-stranger.
38% of rapists are a friend or acquaintance.

Also, that gun is way too small for her. Should probably discourage her from shooting altogether unless she can do it right.

Dear Skippy,

Whatever idea you tried to convey there, you failed miserably. Also, using "leftist" makes you sound utterly ignorant and jingoistic. Finally, I think I hear your mom calling you for dinner. Run along now and let the adults talk.

You know how I know you've never fired an RWS-54? My brother let his Canadian friend shoot mine once while I wasn't around. I came home and the kid looked like he got punched by a boxer wearing a diamond ring. The shooter doesn't feel any recoil, unless his eye is too close to the scope. That pellet gun is a beast on scopes too. It wants to rip the glass right out of the tube.

I merely pointed out your retarded post about a girl shooting an airgun and hurting her face which is physically impossible. I've been shooting high powered guns for 30+ years and know all about guns kicking and shooting form. You give no explanation why someone should trust your opinion and sound like a troll, whatever.

Sometimes knowing the attacker makes it all that much easier to finish them off.

ITG aside- a potential attacker who does know you well will also know that may be carrying and think twice about carrying out their attack. In this instance- just owning the gun will serve as deterrent enough.
