Why Every Woman Should Know How To Safely Handle A Gun – Five Reasons
Reason #1: Self Confidence. There’s nothing like knowing how to handle a gun for building your self-confidence. Ask anyone who has ever shot a gun or carried a gu .38 special ammo n for self-protection. They’ll likely tell you that knowing how to safely handle a firearm gives you the peace of mind that if you were ever in a situation where you needed to put one into action, you could do so at on moment’s notice. It’s one of those skills we all hope we never have to use, but it’s one you can’t learn on the fly when the need arises.
Reason #2: Safety. By knowing about guns and how to safely use, maintain and store them, you’ll also feel safer about being in a place (house, apartment, whatever) where a gun exists. This could mean your place or somewhere that you might visit (read: some hot dude’s pad). Statistically speaking, over 40 percent of households in the U.S. containing an adult man also contain a gun – you do the math on the chances of whether your love interest has one laying around at his place. Do you really want him to be the only one who knows how to use it? According to further statistics by the Rand corporation over a third of households with children present also contain some type of firearm – and most of these households own more than one gun. That means it’s a dynamite idea to learn about gun safety now so that someday when your dream guy sweeps you away and you start a family, you’ll know how to keep them safe.
Reason #3: Meeting others socially. If you’re single: Firing Ranges are a great place to meet men. Your local shooting range is probably one of the best-kept secrets of where you could possibly go to meet young single men. Think about it – most of the people who go there are guys, most of them are either with a buddy or by themselves and 100% of them would be thrilled to meet someone at the range who either has some gun knowledge or needs some “special instruction.” It’s a no-brainer way to chat someone up, just like the old “can you show me how to make this pool shot?” that you’d pull at a bar. Just pick the guy you’re interested in and ask him if he wants to split a shooting lane to save some money (if you already know how to shoot a gun) or whether he’d be interested in showing you a few basic things (if you don’t know how to shoot a gun yet).
Reason #4: If you’re married or already have a love interest: Firing ranges make for a cheap date. If you’re already in a relationship, you know how quickly you can run out of good, cheap date ideas. With the economy the way it is, everyone is always trying to make their paycheck go a little farther, so give your guy a break and suggest a trip to the firing range. Many shooting ranges are inexpensive to visit since the range facility often makes a profit on recycling the lead from spent bullets. Range fees are normally between $5.00 and $10.00 as a result. You can usually split a single lane to save another few bucks. Finally, almost all firing ranges offer some selection of guns that you can rent for anywhere between $5.00 and $15.00, so you don’t have to invest hundreds of dollars into equipment to participate. Total cost of a one-hour trip to the shooting range for two people is normally under $40.00 (which is way cheaper than going to a movie theater these days).
