A couple of our Moderators have noticed the preponderance of male Members here and have suggested that we consider a Forum dedicated specifically to the gentler(?) sex.
My initial reaction is that the concept is patronizing and sexist, as I have yet to find any shooting activity which cannot be performed at least as well by ladies as men. But then, I'm more than willing to be disabused of an incorrect assumption.
We've agreed to settle the issue by caucus. We'd very much appreciate input from our Members and, if applicable, their ladies.
Are there significant gender specific issues in defense and sport shooting? Can The Firing Line be used as a vehicle to introduce defense-conscious females to alternatives provided by the safe and responsible ownership of firearms?
Comments are welcome.
Thanks in advance.
The Staff of The Firing Line
