For the Ladies: Top 5 Worst Choices in Guns for Women #femaleshooters #nolatac #mansplaining

Brannon LeBouef, owner of NOLATAC Training and The St Bernard Indoor Shooting Center discusses the top 5 worst possible pieces of advice that women often get in regards to the best gun for them and why they should seek professional firearms education from a trained instructor they are not related to. He sees thousands of women each year come in to get their permit, shoot recreationally, or purchase their first gun. Here are the lessons learned from 20 years of teaching and 6 years of seeing women make poor firearm purchases for their needs.

Handguns, shotguns, rifles, little guns, big guns, 1911;s, etc…. he covers what you SHOULD NOT be recommending to women or probably anyone and why those choices are poor. Brannon also cautions us about “mansplaining guns” and turning potentially pro-gun women away from guns because of YOUR interaction with them. #stayinyourlane

    Another 'Self proclaimed internet expert'. My wife recently obtained her CCW, and is carrying a S&W Airweight. Works great for her. Revolvers have many advantages, simplicity, long and heavy trigger pull, and the ability to actually see the cartridges in the cylinder. No confusing safeties, slide locks, or magazine releases. No danger of removing the magazine and forgetting about the loaded round still in the chamber. You are the only 'expert' I have seen that recommended against revolvers, because you personally don't like them.

      @John Shepherd lol...... after 50 years of shooting, I don't think I've 'mastered' anything.

    The #1 key mistake that Brannon doesn't address at all is this: A woman (or even a man) buying a gun or being bought a gun without shooting a good number of guns first to find what works *for her* (or him).

    This is my die hard best advice.
    Before buying a first gun, go find a range with a good rental selection, and shoot through it. Try as many calibers as possible. What works for one person may be the bane of another. Then when she's settled more or less on a caliber that feels right, try different guns in it to find which one she feels best with. Then go shopping.

    For the record, my wife picked *for herself* a .45acp as her first handgun. Reason: After many different guns, she tried a .45 her groups went from all over the map, to ringing the 9 and 10 ring.

    Let her find what works for her first, then buy.
