Why Did I Create The Well Armed Woman As A Resource For Women Gun Owners?

When I began thinking about purchasing and carrying a gun several years ago, there was no single resource for a woman gun owner and shooter. I was frustrated and disappointed to discover that there were so few resources out there that provided straight forward and complete information and products geared specifically toward me as a woman gun owner in this male-driven industry. The information I did find was often condescending and sometimes downright insulting. They simply weren't talking to me or meeting my needs as a woman interested in gun ownership. Now, The Well Armed Woman is the complete resource for the woman gun owner.

The greater my interest and passion for guns grew, the more I found that the women I knew and worked with responded with excited curiosity to my new enthusiasm. Women wanted to know more and couldn't wait to try firing a gun! I began to realize that there was a great divide between women's interest in guns and the male dominated "camo and ammo" firearm industry.

I'll introduce you to the ins and outs of armed self-defense, gun ownership, gun safety, shooting skills and products for women shooters. We'll discuss everything from permits to holsters and we'll do it in a candid and concise manner. I created The Well Armed Woman, LLC to be a complete resource without fluff or frills for women gun owners of all ages.


My aim, at The Well Armed Woman is to educate, equip, and empower you as a woman gun owner. Here, you can explore the world of firearms and all that it means to you as a woman. I'll provide you with access to complete information, resources and quality tested products tailored specifically to your needs as a woman. Here you'll find everything you need to make well informed decisions about the role of firearms in your life whether you are a new or experienced gun owner.

The Well Armed Woman, LLC will also provide a much needed sense of community to this growing but often ignored group of women. I hope you'll enjoy browsing through the site and find it a helpful resource to you as a woman gun owner.
