Carrie from The Well Armed Woman has put together a two-part video series that is designed to help women who want to buy a gun, but don’t know where to start or how to shop for a handgun.

I’ve also got a few quick tips that might help make your first gun store trip a little easier:

  • Make sure you’ve handled and fired as many handguns as possible so you know exactly what you are looking for before you step foot in a store. Ladies nights at indoor gun ranges that offer rentals are perfect for testing out a variety of handguns at a minimal cost.
  • You may feel overwhelmed and intimidated the first time you walk in to a gun store.  Relax, everyone’s there to help.
  • If you end up buying a handgun and it’s just not working for you, don’t stress, you can always sell it.  You might lose a little money, but almost all guns retain a good portion of their value, so it won’t be a huge mistake.
