Chapter Three:  Why Many Guns Arenít Right for Women?

Many guns are not right for people in general, for many different reasons, and women in particular have characteristics that make certain guns inappropriate for them.  That is why there is a need for this book --- to help you sift through all the guns that are not right for you in order to select the guns that do make sense for your needs.

Here are reasons why many guns available in the marketplace arenít right for many (but not all) women:

1.                Most handguns are sized for the average American man, who are generally larger than women, with larger hands and longer fingers.  That applies to both the grip size, where the most obvious size issue crops up, and to the overall size of the gun.

2.                Some handguns have a heavy trigger pull that is too much for many women who might not have the finger strength required to press the trigger.

3.                The springs and tensions of semi-automatic pistols require hand and finger strength that many, if not most, women do not possess.  For example, it is extremely difficult for most women to manually load the last few rounds of a magazine for a major caliber pistol.  In fact, it is difficult for many women to load even the fourth and fifth round of a magazine.

4.                Most women typically have a difficult time with the recoil of a major caliber pistol.

5.                Some guns require more training and expertise to operate than what a large percentage of  women are willing to acquire.

Keep in mind that although there are many guns that arenít appropriate for you, there are many that are. 

Itís a matter of educating yourself about what goes into the selection of the right gun for you --- which is the subject of the next chapter.
