I would like to welcome you all to AR15.com. We are far and few between. But it's nice to have other ladies on the board to chat with. I know we all are different in one way or another. But we do have one thing in common. We all like to go shooting and own guns of our own. I know enough about guns to get in a conversation. But, I'm more of a Craft and Cooking kinda Girl. I do love to go to the Range with hubby and am looking forward to our next big get together with our friends. Anyway,just wanted to say hello and to welcome you all here!

Thank you for the warm welcome! I joined mainly for the Survival forum since I'm one of the very rare breed of "urban preparedness enthusiasts" who thinks survival preparation is more than having a ten-year-old first-aid kit in the trunk of the car.

Part of that survival instinct is the determination not to be a victim, which was a difficult realization since I'd been a victim-in-training all my life, living in Los Angeles. Today I know better.

We live in interesting times, but there's no better time to be a woman in America than right now! Here's to us!

I know what you mean. I get by the BBQ when we go shooting to make sure the men are doing it right or to see if I dare have any. lol I am an 'old school' cooker, even have a cook book that dates back into the 1920's.

What crafts do you do? I'm into alot of different types of things. A friend even gave me a bobbin lace kit. Still haven't figured that one out.

That's quite a list of things, and to think I thought I was bad at keeping myself busy. I am curious about the wallpaper envelopes and hand made paper.

I quilt, crochet, embrodery, tat, draw, paint, and cook from scratch among other things.

welcome one and all! Haven't been here in a long while, wanted to check in. Nice to see some new faces around here! Hope we can get this women's forum up and rolling, it's great to meet women who shoot. I just took two newbies to the range last night, set them off on my HK USP 9mm and a Ruger 10/22, they had a blast! Doing my part, one woman at a time!

At the last shoot there was a lady who had never shot any hand guns, so, after she had shot a glock, I let her shoot my favorite, SW 45 revolver w/hair trigger. She actually liked it.

.45 ACP? I am close to buying the Taurus for my wife. Then if she likes it maybe upgrade later to the SW.
