"We Are G4G"
If this was a video, the background music would be set to Whitney Houston's "I'm Every Woman"
We get a lot of assumptions about the Guns for Gals customer- she's an expert shooter, an avid hunter, and a marksman! She's rad, bad, and powerful. Don't mess with this girl!
Truth be told, we do get a lot of ladies in our shop who fit that description to a T, but she's not the woman we see in our doors 80% of the time. So who is she? She's someone's mother, fearful of the latest events on the news. She's someone's grandmother, recently widowed and unsure of how to protect herself without her soulmate by her side. She's someone's daughter, freshly 21 and terrified to be on her own.
She's young, she's elderly, she's confident, she's scared.
She wants to know how she can take her safety into her own hands.
A vast majority of our customers come to us because they fear they cannot protect themselves on their own. Many are in wheelchairs, and unable to run from a would-be predator. Many are elderly, losing strength and unsure of how to defend themselves as the world becomes ever stronger than they are. A good number are pregnant, thinking of how to defend the precious child they are miraculously creating within themselves.
Why am I telling you this? Because as the years have gone by, it has become increasingly obvious to us that these women need a place to go. A listening ear to guide them through the tough decision of choosing something they'll trust to defend their life with, God forbid the need arises. These women have touched our hearts and given us an ever growing passion for what we do. We want to share these women's stories with you, to show you that you aren't alone. This is why we're creating a new feature, entitled "We Are G4G" to feature the amazing women who make us who we are- from the adventure-seeking huntress who loves the trill of the hunt, to the range goddess, to the timid beginner, we want to hear your stories.
If you're interested in being featured on "We Are G4G" send us your favorite range day photo, or any picture that makes you feel confident and strong. Tell us why you carry, and a little about your favorite firearm or holster. We'll pick a new lady (or gentleman!) each week to inspire and empower the internet!
