As more and more women enter the gun world, one can argue that it makes sense for women to have their own online destination to gather information and share stories, tips, tactics about all things gun-related.
The Women’s Gun Zone is more than just a website, it is an online community, support network and forum for female shooters. To give one an idea of the forum topics on the site, users can participate in discussions on: Purchasing the Right Gun, Concealed Carry Holsters, Owning Guns with Children, Gun Laws, Pregnancy and Shooting, Defensive Shooting, Competitive Shooting, Senior Citizens, among others.
“Women are relational and we live our lives out in community with one another, so it just seemed natural to create an online community where women can get their questions answered, get advice from other female shooters, share their experiences, and stay up to date on what’s happening in the gun industry with new products, and stay informed on political issues,” said Carrie Lightfoot, founder of TWAW.
“I am as excited about this new community as I was when I launched the TWAW Shooting Chapter program,” continued Lightfoot. “This creates a whole new level of sharing and interaction for women shooters that far exceeds current social media options and has none of the limitations that come with mainstream social media.”
Lightfoot and her team used polling on Facebook to help design The Women’s Gun Zone. She wants to ensure that users continue to help shape the experience on site.
“As this has been created for women gun owners, their feedback and input will be invited and welcomed. I want this to be what our users want it to be, so we will work together to make it the best,” said Lightfoot.
“We also will be inviting industry partners to join in and connect directly with women shooters,” she continued. “Here, those companies that truly are working to meet the needs of the female shooter through our sponsorship program can have unprecedented access to women shooters to help guide them.”
