Estimated Female Gun Owners:
USA – 12-17 MILLION
CANADA – 275,000

Not really a surprising difference.  Even taking into account that the population in Canada (36 Million people) is 9 times smaller than the USA (326 Million people).

3:48 – Really handling that slide home.

4:02 – Oh damn they really out here Mozambique’ing attackers.  A lot of full size guns in the mix.

14:27 – Aw damn I can’t see what the Spongebob mocking meme sign says.  That meme is one of my favorites.

14:20 – A sheepdog silently… vigilantly keeps watch over the sheep.

ahhahahhaha:

These guys really stick to the formula of clickbaity titles and random discussion, wow.

I always thought the MAIN reason women didn’t want to train with guys are because guys are macho and try to impress women *shrug*… this happens enough in a woman’s day to day life with the looks, comments, and the m’lady’s everywhere they go It sounds really exhausting.  Going to something women’s only seems like it would be a breath of fresh air.

Thoughts?

Holy, wow this is excruciating to watch.  I know I normally exaggerate, but this will cause you real physical pain when you view it trust me:

Graduate from hand gesture academy top of his class.  The shame is I really like this guy’s message if I was reading it on paper, but watching the video makes me want to actually put my head through the monitor just to make him stop talking.  For real though, if I wasn’t “blogging” about this video I would have already shut if off.  I had no idea people like this actually exist in real life.

Oh and here’s a rough draft of a scene… you know, just to WOW you with the production value, acting, and overall quality:

I don’t think I’ve ever been more embarrassed in my entire life for someone else.  Normally I don’t really care what other people do, but I genuinely feel terrible that this even exists.

gun-self-defense-for-womenYou can check out the Indiegogo (naturally *eyeroll* *groan*) campaign here.  As you can see it’s not doing so hot (huge shocker I know).

Thoughts?  Seriously though, did I just get trolled?  I’d actually be relieved if I did, because that would mean this guy is just being this “Derek Savage” character in an attempt to go viral and this is all fake and terrible on purpose. Something tells me this is all genuine though, after looking at Derek Savage’s website and browsing the links at the bottom.

Starring Girls Guide to Guns lady boss / NRA News commentator Natalie Foster:

Looks like it’s going to be a really well done show.  I’m not above watching shows tailored towards women and by women, if they are interesting.  The worst is when shows like this are done by old guys thinking they “know what the women enjoy, such as pink colored stuff and lots of kitchen talk”.  From the preview I’m under the impression that Natalie seems to have a lot of creative control, so I’m sure it will be good.

NRA-Women-Love-At-First-ShotThe NRA has a special NRA Women site for this show with other woman related topics and initiatives, and a forum you can check out (or tell your wife, girlfriend etc… about)

Erika talks about her journey to fem-operator status, and equality:

I don’t know why they wouldn’t link to the original FateOfDestinee video, or even acknowledge that it was her that did it.  Just “a girl did a video”… interesting.

Erika has the exact opposite view and experience as FateOfDestinee.  Erika is extremely confident though, so i’m sure a lot of guys are scared of her and her skills when they see her at the range.  Don’t get me wrong, FateOfDestinee seems confident too, but just on more of a girl next door level.

I still watch all cory07ink’s vids… sure I made fun of a few of them too (for good reasons I think), but Erika has come a very long way.  Those two are a tactical power couple if I’ve ever seen one.  I’m just waiting for Cory to put a five carat diamond depleted uranium picatinny railed ring with platinum accents with on that finger, and propose to her while repelling from a helicopter into a james-yeager-photographers-down-range-to-capture-the-moment mock gun battle scenario.

FateOfDestinee goes in on the negative attitudes from male shooters:

She’s pretty pissed off.  Girls have to deal with so much bullshit we don’t have to deal with as guys.

I like her approach in the video… kinda a MrColionNoir type delivery going on.  Really clean look… killin’ it with that white background.

With most of her complaints I have to say it’s pretty much “welcome to being a girl… enjoy your life”.  I’m not saying it should happen, but the truth is it will happen because she is not a dude and she’s into a male dominated hobby.

Thoughts?
