As a woman, I learned late in life to shoot and hunt because my late husband did so, and put meat on our table in times when we had very little to live on. When he paid his tag fee, he was doing his share of the 95% of state funding to conserve wildlife. Women my age were by-and large obstructionist and ignorant of the facts of conservation and wildlife funding. I learned. He taught me shooting longarms and hunting, and we became "buddies". Our bond grew. He's dead now, but if he were here, he'd say..no better way to learn concealed carry than from a group of Christian hunters. Things are tight. My son is going to help me buy a pistol. As sooon as I have it..guess where I'm going?
