Take Aim at Concealing It!
Did you know that there’s been a 50% increase in women’s participation in Target shooting in the last 10 years?
You don’t need to be Annie Oakley to protect yourself or the ones you love with a firearm. There are over 20 million women gun owners -- and they’re taking aim at learning how to handle their firearm, not just for sport, but also for protection, security and peace of mind.
Kel-Tec CNC Industries has been a pioneer in concealed carry weapons since the ‘90s. They strongly believe in the right to protect yourself and believe that women especially should familiarize themselves with pistols and how to use them safely if the need for one arises.
But even before learning how to handle a firearm properly, it’s critical for women to know proper storage and how to safely conceal their weapon (in your home or car, etc.):
• Make sure you limit access
• Know where it is at all times (away from children)
• Store in a quick-release safe (number punch, fingerprint access)
• Don’t leave weapon out. Children almost always know where the gun is.
• Educate your children early, teach them. Do not just say “don’t touch”.
• Have a flashlight accessible near bed for seeing at night
• “Stop, don’t touch, leave the area, tell an adult” NRA education phrase for kids
• Never point weapon at anyone or anything you don’t intend to shoot -- even if unloaded.
Guns in general are safe. They don’t just go off. Trigger locks aren’t safe enough and can be broken off. Keep the weapon in a place you know only you can access; but you must be able to access it in a quick manner because if needed, it will likely be under stress and gun locks tend to be a hindrance.
Ideally, a firearm should never have to be used, but if so, keep it safe.
