The title of this article could have been a little more appropriate. It has a little bit of a "Na Na Girls only" feel to it. Strange.

Sex discrimination!!! I'm suing!!! Seriously, good for them. Firearms and training will go a long way to protect a woman's safety. There are far too many creeps out there.

Scandal.some participants feel better about learning with other women..it sorta does away with that "beginner anxiety".Certainly not all..but some have never had ANY training.The Admin for this program are VERY well trained.Just go and watch one weekend and you will see the safety practices observed and some folks(women as well)that have an opportunity to learn to protect themselves as well as family and neighbors..with a WIDE margin of safety because of proper training.

It is a great program especially for women. Many who feel threatened by an abusive partner need to be armed and competent with a fire arm. Having helped my wife raise 3 competent females, it will not be long before they are excelling at shooting sports and out shooting us males. It is a proven fact. And the rate of women getting involved in shooting sports and hunting is thankfully on the rise. GO NRA.

And yes, Mrs. Lankford is probably the best instructor to have for these courses. She's absolutely amazing regarding firearms!
