Newtown, CT -(Ammoland.com)- The National Shooting Sports Foundation invites SHOT Show media to attend a press conference on the release of a new, comprehensive report: “Women Gun Owners: Purchasing, Perceptions and Participation.”

Women are the fastest growing segment of gun owners and participants in target shooting and hunting over the past decade. This report reveals their reasons for purchasing firearms, their spending habits and preferred shooting activities, perceptions about personal and home protection, and more.

“More than half of women (55.6 percent) who participated in the new research study said they intend to purchase at least one firearm in the next 12 months.”
