Sean Cantwell, owner of Tilden Gun says it’s the trend he’s noticed grow in the past couple of years. The trend that caught the eye of gun manufactures too.
“Fun colors, pink being the most popular ,and accessories to go along with that clothing, same colored ear muffs,” explained Cantwell.
That includes adjustments to guns too,
making them more women friendly.

And for women buying guns these days it’s not just about the small sizes and the fun colors; experts say it’s about expressing themselves.
“I think women are becoming more empowered,” said Cantwell.
“Women are interested in self protection, especially in light of year’s past events,”
