Default Hello...

Hello Ladies...

No one has posted here in the last two months. Maybe that's good -- if we are assimilated and working all the non-gender-specific threads.

Either way, in those last two months, I hope your Thanksgiving and Christmas were fun, filling, and safe. Looking barely forward: Happy New Year!!!



Katie

Default Yes, I do shoot like a girl

[COLOR="black"]Hi Kate!

My husband suggested I connect with the ladies here, since women are better shooters than men.

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas. I got a new (old) rifle and I got the gear I need to shoot a black powder rifle I got a few months ago. I used to be a rifle instructor with Project Appleseed until I contracted West Nile virus in August of 2012. I almost died, but women who shoot are tough. I don't have full use of my right arm, but I can hit steel all day using a bag.

Enough about me, let's get this party started!

~ Jackie

don't let the forum die from lack of use. every woman should check in at least once a month or so just to let us men know you have not abandoned us.

Hi GunTradersWife!

Is it me, or are forums weird? They are not intuitive to me, I struggle to find what I want to find, etc.

OK, we are here now! What do you like to shoot? We are going to explore black powder shooting next. We are told it's addicting, will report back on that.

My nickname is 22calgal because I do love to shoot .22's!

Hello!!
Yes they are not user friendly for sure. I didnít even get anything saying there was a new post here.
22ís are awesome! I shoot anything I can! Lol
Definitely report back on the black powder! That is something Iíve never shot for sure!

I signed up to get an email whenever someone responds to this thread. My husband showed me that little trick!

I agree, I shoot anything and everything. I got West Nile virus in 2012, and because of that I don't have full use of my right arm any more. I just use a bag to prop my arm up. I almost died from the West Mile, so I am grateful to be alive and grateful to be able to shoot!

Default Hi Ladies

I guess I'm more of a lurker than a poster, but I'll do my best to help keep our forums alive.

Good morning, Ladies!

I think we women aren't on this forum as much because we are so busy. It's a woman thing.

It's nice to connect with other women shooters, though!

Wasn't the rally in Virginia AWESOME?

Thank you for the tip. I subscribed and hopefully I can stay up to date with things. Congrats on your new pistol!

Yep, yep, and yep. It's a woman thing. I added two more to my collection, unfortunately, I have not been able to shoot either one. I got a Bersa Firestorm .380, love the way it feels in my hand. The other one is a Ruger SR9C. I'm hoping as soon as I'm in between classes I'll get a chance.

Woo-hoo!! We have a .380, it's a great little pistol. Anything Ruger rocks in my world!

We belong to West End Gun club, so that's where we shoot. Where do you ladies shoot?
