During the 8-year reign of terror known as the Barack Obama years, many areas of the nation saw home invasions, violent crimes and personal physical attacks increase. It seems that Obama’s policies spurred a criminal atmosphere throughout the nation. Consequently, hundreds of thousands of Americans bought guns to arm themselves at home and while they are out in public. Many of those buying guns for the first time are women. They feel that it’s become necessary to take measures to obtain concealed carry permits in states where necessary. But is the right gun for most women. It depends upon the woman and her needs. Now, there is a guide available to help women choose the right gun for to fit their need.
When shopping for a firearm, there are many factors that come to play. As a woman, I have a few more things to consider. One of the points I like to emphasize is when purchasing a firearm, don’t let anyone tell you what they “think” fits you best. A lot of times when women go to buy their first gun, they get persuaded into something that the store clerk thinks is best, of course with good intentions. It is usually based off of what other women are purchasing or what manufactures are marketing for women. That is usually something compact or with a small frame and a generally smaller caliber. That’s fine if that’s what you want. But just because it’s smaller, doesn’t mean it’s always better.
The only way to know if you like something is to try it. If you have the opportunity to try a firearm out before purchasing it I highly suggest doing so. Research online is great as far as reviews on function, pricing, and customizing but don’t let that be your only deciding factor. Make sure the gun is comfortable in your hands. Most guns come with different options for grip sizes. Try each one out. You’re spending a good amount of money on something, you want to make sure you like it.
It’s important for everyone, male or female to make sure they buy the right gun for their needs and that fits them. By that, I mean that everyone is different. The best gun for them may be a different caliber, different make and different style that what’s best for someone else. People take time to make sure they buy the right shoes or clothes that fit them and their needs and the same applies to guns.
