Women Are the Fastest Growing Handgun Consumers, Here’s Why

Women with handguns

The shooting and hunting industry is experiencing a nationwide girl power movement.

In fact, women are the fastest-growing group of gun owners in the U.S.

Some women purchase them as a means of self protection, others simply feel empowered by heading to the range and blowing off some steam. And of course, there are also those who carry a handgun into the woods when they  hunt in case they come across any predators, like coyote.

This video from CBS News takes a closer look at the growing trend.

The most popular models are semi-automatic handguns because they are lightweight, accurate, and so simple that practically anyone can learn to use it.

The bottom line is that more women are buying handguns than ever.

Whether they use it for recreation or self defense, the fact of the matter is that women have serious buying power that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
