I joined Women Armed and Ready for several reasons;
- I like guns
- I like being a part of a group
- One of the founder's is a relative and I love being with her
- It's only Women
The most important reason was that I talk a good game and have an attitude that I'm tough, but I REALLY didn't know if I could do it if it came right down to having to pull the trigger. Would I bulk? Would I talk up with my attitude and then not follow through and end up being killed?
Women Armed and Ready has given me the confidence and the MIND SET and made me say "YES, I CAN!" defend myself and my family if needed. I still need practice and training. But now my aim is good and my confidence in myself is better.>
Thanks to WAR and my NRA instructor Dale Reatherford.

When a women reaches a certain age, she feels particularly vulnerable in this world where some people feel no compunction about robbing in any way they need to, a person who appears to be a soft target. There are physical things that WAR teaches it's members that I am unable to do. But learning to shoot and care for a weapon makes me feel a lot less like a soft target. The camaraderie of other women makes it possible for me to hone my skills in an atmosphere of acceptance and gives me the courage to believe I can protect myself if I ever need to.

Women Armed and Ready (WAR) is a place where I can feel comfortable talking about guns, asking questions and practice shooting with other women. We talk about things that specifically concern women and the topics are up-to-date and relevant for today's woman, both young and not so young. I get to share my experiences and hear the experiences and concerns of other women from all different lifestyles and different age groups. The offer all types of classes for the beginner to the well seasoned shooter. Since I found this group I have become more confident about carrying and shooting my firearm.
