One of the biggest selling points for me when teaching others to shoot is that it's FUN. I've always said if you can get the giggle, you've got the shooter.
It never occurred to me that there was an attitude out there that it wasn't okay for women to have fun shooting, that it was only okay for them to shoot if they choose to for self-defense. That the only reason women would want to shoot is because they're afraid. I can't say that I've ever run into that.
Obviously, other women have run into that attitude, as Natalie Foster discusses in her new video "Welcome to the Present".
She makes some valid points, go check out the video.
