    Very good book about the feminine side of gun ownership

    Was well rounded and complete in all the issues of women and guns. One interesting point made by firearm instructors is that women make the best students because they listen and follow directions. They come to the training without an ego or an attitude. There is a conflict about what women think about guns and what they get from the women's lib movement. Despite claims for equality they discourage women from owning a handgun in particular which I found to be a rather odd position. Read this book to get the rest of the story.

    Conversation with the Author

    I had a chance to ask a question and make a comment with the author on Wisconsin Public Radio. Her book is from a women's perspective. Her background is urban New Jersey with no exposure to firearms until she met her husband. I asked her if she knew of Carol Ruth Silver. She knew her from Silver's contribution to Don Kates' 'Restricting Handguns - The Liberal Skeptics Speak Out'. The discussion on the radio program was varied and most informative.
