Women ‘want to be able to protect themselves’

by Mary Anderson  |  published on November 18, 2014

Frank Batten, the firearms instructor and certified trainer for Deep River Outfitters, said his goals for any concealed carry or firearms safety class is to educate, equip and train.

As do all instructors, he keeps up with changes in the law via a state website.

His classes are sometimes all male, sometimes male and female, and some classes are specifically for women.

“Women of all ages are enrolling in the classes. Those who haven’t been exposed to firearms are hesitant to join a class where they think everybody else knows more than they do,” Batten said. “We want them to feel comfortable, to come here and just talk if they are thinking about taking a class and feel unsure about it.”

Batten said a lot of women have a fear of firearms. There are a lot of misconceptions about what kind of gun a woman should buy and how she should use it.
