Are women becoming the new gun industry buyers? Should firearm companies start appealing more to the woman? It is becoming more and more common for women to carry since we want to protect ourselves from the crazy ones out there.
Rapid City, SD A gun show at the Rapid City Plaza Civic Center has seen a change in demographics interested in guns.
Organizers say more women are starting to take aim at the Dakota Territory Gun Collector’s Association Gun Show.
They say most females are looking for protection.
Sonny Pesicka, the organizer of the Dakota Territory Gun Collector’s Association Gun Show, said “The women are getting way more interested in guns than they ever were before. And that’s good. All of women think of self protection now. There’s also sporting, hunting, and self protection and home protection and that kind of stuff.”
The show is home to guns through the decades, with some collections worth more than several hundred thousand dollars.
The gun industry isn’t just for men anymore. However, that is not a bad thing. It is encouraging to see more females picking up interest in firearms and carrying, because it means more people are practicing their second amendment rights.
The more good people there are, out there with guns, the less likely a criminal with a gun will be able to do much damage. Not to mention, with more people picking up firearms, it can only do good for the industry’s revenue.
