WOMEN BUYING GUNS GET REAL ANSWERS FROM THE PRO's! FEMALES FIND GUN BUYING EASY AT CHEYENNE MTN. OUTFITTER!

Home invasions are on the rise, and they often have multiple assailants. Women are scared to death by the TV news and an uncertain future. Riots, unrest, food shortages wreak havoc on the mind and family responsibilities being a "Protector" weigh heavily, especially for single moms. They're buying guns in record numbers, and gun stores are no longer "pushing" the hard-to-shoot, pink-colored ultra-compacts and snub-nosed revolvers to the fairer sex. That condescending behavior by gun salesmen is long over (thank GOD!).
Instead, professional outfitters behind gun counters are asking pertinent questions and steering first time gun buying women (and men) to firearms that suit the buyer's intended purpose---self defense! Full-size pistol frames with a longer sight radius (distance between front & rear sights), standard-length barrel and 10 round magazine (largest NJ law allows) meet their needs.
These features allow new gun owners to hit what they're aiming at, and do it SOONER & FASTER, as the full-size guns are easier to point, shoot, have less recoil (commonly called "kick") and allow quicker, more accurate follow-up shots. With the possibility of multiple perps trying to break-in, 10 rounds (plus 1 in the chamber) beats 5 in a snubby hands-down! Practice is of course still required to attain marksmanship, and TRAINING, although not mandatory, is what a responsible gun owner seeks.
Women do a number of activities with friends and relatives, and gun buying is no different. An aunt and niece went gun shopping together last Saturday, gun permits in-hand, asking CNJFO's Youth Shooting Committee Chair Eric Saperstein, a part-time salesman at Cheyenne Mountain, lots of questions. Saperstein answered cheerfully, and asked some questions of his own, including the intended purpose of the firearms and whether the pair are right-handed or left-handed, to which they both responded as "lefties".
Saperstein showed them how to work a pistol they pointed to in the gun case. They fumbled, trying to use their right hands to operate the slide by putting it into battery (make the pistol ready to fire). Then he went to fetch a pair of Walther PPQ M-2 pistols that feature an ambidextrous slide release. The ladies looked at each other and smiled. They now had something in their hands that FIT and their needs were met. Both guns were sold to very happy first-time gun buyers! Saperstein had to explain the incessant infringement scheme of the NJ NICS delay of an entire business week, but at least they could bring home the 9mm ammunition for now.
The line outside waiting to get into Cheyenne Mountain Outfitters, on Rt. 130 south in Bordentown, NJ last Saturday, was nearly wrapped around the parking lot. Covid capacity restrictions meant a longer wait to get the customized service Cheyenne is famous for, and everyone waited patiently, including this writer.
Cheyenne is an official sponsor of the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners, having donated materials & ammo to Saperstein's Youth Shoots (which we hope to schedule again soon). For more info, hours, etc., go to:
