I find competent women who like guns to be very attractive. Someone posted earlier, +2 on the hottometer.

Some men want a woman that they can take care of, and I can see that, but I want a woman that is also a competent partner that can carry her weight, and then some!

Women and guns are a winning combination for me.

My husband too (thinks a woman with a gun is hot and sexy). I'm a better shot than he is but he has no problem with that -- I like rifles, he likes handguns and shotguns so it evens us out. I am reminded of a quote the late Harry Browne once posted:

Handguns are a girl's best friend!!"

Women that are comfortable with weapons are in short supply ,, they can be assured of serious attention on dating websites.

Every woman should know how to shoot. Women in general are better shots that men because they have better fine muscle control. If you go back in time in America, most women could shoot and shoot well. Think foxes, chicken hawks, and hen houses for an example.

In today’s world “An armed woman is a rapists greatest nightmare.” Teach your daughters to shoot.

Here’s a question for a competent woman who likes guns.
I sent away to Wolff for a stronger 16 lb. slide recoil spring, since I’m using only FMJ .45 and they recommend it for this make & model. I’ve read that the factory 13 lb. spring can cause a broken slide stop. Ordinarily I would go with what the manufacturer installs, but I also replaced the guide rod since it was plastic (!).
.45 FMJ: Let’s not go there, OK?
So it arrived the other day and I installed it. However nothing was said (that I recall) about a new hammer spring, and I didn’t know they would be sending a new hammer spring as well. Should I replace the hammer spring?
(Keep in mind that I don’t want to, and you can’t make me, sister. So there.)

Perhaps they just come as a set. I do not see the need for replacement, as long as the firearm functions as you wish it to.

It is always nice to have some spare parts!

Perhaps some of our many knowledgeable freepers can answer the question more completely.

I think my wife is very sexy on the range. (and most other times too!) When she is concentrating, sighting down her S&W... Doesn’t matter what she’s wearing, stance/pose... She’s sexy.

The gun-

Bring sexual equality since 1839 (Patterson Colt).

Making people into citizens since 1775.

An insurance policy that protects one before being victimized.

Is the corollary, then, that you have to be fat and ugly to like guns? It is so not the case. Sarah Palin. I rest my case.

It’s infinitely harder to rape a woman when she’s pointing a gun at you.

Not at all. A woman who is very attractive becomes even more attractive. It is an additive quality.

Fat, ugly, and attractive are rather subjective quantities.

Well, here's a couple of videos of my Wife, her 20-year-old Daughter, and her 14-year-old Niece shooting at the range.

I trained them all, and they're getting pretty dern good.

"Women in general are better shots that men because they have better fine muscle control."

As a former platoon leader and company commander, I made the following observation, which admittedly is a broad generalization. Many male soldiers came into the Army having some level of exposure to firearms, and while a handful were highly proficient, many had spent their youth reinforcing bad shooting habits, and would come to BRM classes and the qualification range thinking they already knew everything. Most young female soldiers had little to no exposure to firearms, and approached with a degree of alert apprehension, fully willing to listen to every single word their NCOs told them. They were essentially blank slates, had no bad habits, and came to the range (or weaponeer) fully willing to execute precisely as they had been taught.

Again...broad generalities, but enough to make an impression on me.

depending on the gun, recoil is managed by both the recoil spring and the hammer spring. if you’re putting in a higher rate recoil spring you may need a lower rate hammer spring to retain the same overall spring rates. this is for guns with hammers, guns that are striker fired are different.

I agree with that. I don't know what it is outside of the obvious common interest. The eyes are more likely to wander when it comes to ladies with guns.

Interesting the girls shoot body-facing the target rather than tactically (body-angled). Conscious choice or are they simply more comfortable that way?

Well, my Wife has been going shooting with me since February, and I like starting them out with the Weaver stance for stability and recoil control. Her Daughter has been with us four times, and that video was her Niece's first time ever. Next week, I'm going to work with my Wife on different stances and positions while firing the weapon. I just figured to start them slow and safe first, then work our way through changes after they become more comfortable.

Thanks to you both. I’ll take it out and shoot it.

Gun guys are not everywhere to protect us ladies. In the late 80s I had a man try to carjack/abduct me in a grocery store parking lot AFTER he tried stopping me on the highway by pulling along side me telling me I had a flat tire. Tire was not flat or losing air. Ge follows me into the grocery which is 20 miles from nearest police. Anyways leaving the store he shoved me once I got drivers door open and had sat down in the seat. Cotton skirt plus velvour interior do not slide. All he did with the shove was put my hand on gun underneath my seat. Hubby insisted I have a gun due to distance I traveled daily alone. I pulled the gun on him and he immediately changed his tune. Ran and got into his pickup and left...heading towards the beach. Husband traded in the old 22and and got me a sweet stainless steel model 66 .357. My fave even today.

And now I am recovering from a couple of strokes. One affected my Rightside and months later still very weak and feel vulnerable. Still using a walker and don’t like it. My 357 now is to heavy for me and may need to trade. Any suggestions. I currently have just a. 22 magnum derringer. My very first gun.

I suggest a Colt detective special.See if you can find a good older one,the actions on those are very smooth.Get the Gold Dot ammo that’s optimized for short barrels and you should be good to go.

Okay, I need help here. Should I take this literally, or figuratively?

Go to a well-stocked gun store or a gun show and see if you can handle a S&W alloy J-frame in 38 Special. I have a 638-2, and my wife is always borrowing it because it is much lighter than her stainless 357. While I prefer 44 or 45 handguns, when weight is an issue a 38 snub is not a bad choice. Just my humble opinion.

Yes, I believe it adds to a woman’s beauty, too. Just postulating a corollary to the writer, who seemed to be in a dither about whether the two could be juxtaposed. Think Sarah Palin.

Fat and ugly are a little bit subjective but pretty quantitative.

The guys stressed that they find it sexy when a woman knows her way around a weapon. We females noted that, through their actions, these men also appreciated the opportunity to come to a woman’s rescue.

Maybe it's that they like coming to a lady's rescue, but don't want to have to be doing so constantly?

All a woman has to do to get attention on a dating website is sign up. I tried one once where I had 7 guys messaging me before I even finished signing up! It was creepy.

Women who can shoot have my vote. Even if they can’t shoot but love to do it makes her a winner in my book. Expert or not I like women who enjoy shooting.

Anyone with a gun, my comfort level changes on a case by case basis.

Incidentally I can’t legally own a gun, so she might end up guarding me...LOL

P. S. The felony was for defending myself with my hands much too well from an attempted robbery. Honest Injun.
