Women should shoot revolvers, they are simple.
Here’s a pink gun you will like.

Your hands are too small to shoot a gun properly.
To his friend, you better not let a girl beat you.
Are you sure you want to shoot THAT?
You can’t carry a .45, it’s too powerful for you.

Women always limp-wrist, they are too weak to hold a gun properly.
Women can’t rack the slide of this gun, it’s too hard.
You shooting a .22 or .380?
Do you want me to show you how to handle that gun?
Wow, your husband lets you shoot his guns?
Whoa, that gun is bigger than you!
If the women are done clucking…
Do you know how to load that?
It never fails, they say exactly what they are thinking without thinking sometimes. For every supportive, experienced shooter there is two others that have more opinions than sense. Do not let these comments make you doubt yourself or stop you from shooting. Share the ridiculousness with your friends and laugh it off.
