Product Details

Numbers don’t lie; more and more women are purchasing guns and learning to shoot! While shooting used to be a male-dominated sport, women across the country have begun discovering that a trip to the range not only is relaxing, but also brings with it a sense of strength and empowerment. Taking Your First Shot is an introductory guide perfect for either those stepping out onto the range for the first time or those looking to brush up on their skills. Author Lynne Finch coaches women on the decision to learn to shoot, how to find formal training, selecting and purchasing a handgun, defensive versus practice ammunition, storing and caring for your gun, and concealed carry options.

Along with learning the shooting basics, Finch also teaches readers the importance of situational awareness and the basics of self-defense. Sometimes a gun isn’t always an answer, and it’s important to have a proportional response to the situation. Finch begins with teaching readers how to become aware of their surroundings, what to watch for, and how to respond. From there, she goes on to define proportional response and why carrying pepper spray, a kubotan, or even a whistle can make all the difference.

Easy to read, lots of illustrative images, and a lot of topics covered!
