Hello I’m Deborah, and I’m a professional working wife and mom who also loves to shoot. I’m currently a Marksman First Class in NRA Pistol Qualification and a Wisconsin Concealed Carry Permit holder. I got interested in shooting first for self-protection, but have really found it to be a fantastic hobby as well.
I’m a history buff, and my first experience with guns came several years ago at an afternoon seminar I attended with my husband and daughter on vintage Enfield rifles. In addition to the history lesson, the class had an opportunity to go out to the range and shoot some of the .22 caliber training rifles they had. I took my first shot and I was hooked. I quickly learned that you need to treat firearms with care and respect, but you don’t have to fear them. Shortly thereafter I obtained my concealed carry permit and purchased my first handgun, a Sig Sauer P320 9mm. The rest, as they say, is history.
There are particular challenges for women who want to concealed carry – most of the firearms industry is male-dominated, and for years their approach to women shooters was to “shrink it and pink it.” Well I, for one, don’t like pink. I’ve been searching for and trying out the tools, products and techniques that allow me to safely concealed carry and still look like a woman.
