Top 5 Considerations When Buying a Carry Pistol as a Woman

Adam Scepaniak

Hello everyone! I'm the C.M.O. and Manager for The Guns and Gear Store of Rogers and Waite Park, MN. Also, I'm a Smith & Wesson Certified Armorer, Glock Certified Armorer, a guest writer for Sierra Bullets, an avid pistol shooter, reloader, and have an addiction to classic double-action Smith & Wesson and Colt revolvers. I love the challenge of hunting different game whether its elk, black bear, feral hogs, whitetail deer, or prairie dogs. What can I say? I love my firearms, the great outdoors, and I have a wonderful family to do all of this with!

    Great post .. interesting and informative. Another aspect to consider is “where” you will be carrying your handgun .. on your body or in a purse .. and how readily available and easy it is to draw/access. My wife carries a Ruger .38 LCR snubbie and loves it. It’s hammer-less and she carries it in a Specially designed purse with a built in holster (no hammer to get caught on anything as it’s being drawn). Adam, your are spot on in saying be “Comfortable” with the handgun you chose, and also be CONFIDENT in the pistol AND Yourself. Get some range time .. whether a semi-auto or a revolver … Shoot it BEFORE you NEED it …. Bob Lozinski

    You have made some decent points there. I checked on the net for
    more info about the issue and found most individuals will
    go along with your views on this web site.

    • Thanks for your input and visiting our blog! We get a lot of women through our stores looking at handguns and this is what we have experienced with working with so many female customers.

    Hi Adam,
    Agreed with you. “It’s cute” – is the worst way to choose a gun I’ve ever heard about.
    You should consider reliability, size, security reasons.
    Basically, your gun must be scary. Not cute. 🙂

    • I’ll be the first to admit… “Nobody wants an accurate gun that is ugly,” but that is NEVER the deciding factor in making any purchase. It needs to be comfortable for you, have tolerable recoil for you, be accurate, and suit the purpose you intend to use it for. If after all of those questions being satisfied, you have before you multiple options with some being quite literally more attractive than others, then, by all means choose one that looks nice also.
