Newbie to MCO
« on: September 16, 2015, 12:19:20 PM »
I finally got the nerve to go to the Women's shoot in May. A friend of mine "hisbetterhalf" suggested to a group of us to check it out.

The last time I actually shot a gun was years ago. Scared to try again but now I am a proud CPL holder and would recommend it to all the women out there since we are the ones that are targeted most often while we are out shopping or doing many day to day activities.

I went out to Cabela's to hang out with my friends who were working the table this past weekend. Met several MOC members and learned about things I do not know.

That was also my first open carry. Looking forward to open carrying more often.

Welcome!  Thanks for your comments.... I'm a big believer in girls with guns for the reasons that you mentioned.  I already quoted your post to my wife.  She has had her CPL for 6 years but she doesn't carry .... I wish she did!

Recent wake up call for my spouse.  We had an interesting incident at the house, I had a beer and couldn't carry.  She should have, but wasn't.

I love that more women are empowering ourselves and carrying. Two of my female friends have since got their CPL and carry now because of me talking to them about it and their safety.
