Check this out, from ABC News:

"More women, from soccer moms to professionals like the ones at the Blue Ridge Arsenal gun range in Chantilly, Va., are packing heat for sport, self-empowerment and protection."

Apparently, women are lining up for recreational gun fun at women-only firearms training classes and ladies night at the range. New lines of "girly guns and apparel" are already flooding the market.

Happy Monday.
