At the top of our lineup this week is some amazing news from Walther. NRA Women editors awarded the Walther PDP Compact the 2022 Golden Bullseye for Handgun of the Year because we thought it was an incredible gun that women could and would shoot well. We were right, with corroboration provided by results of our Ladies Pistol Project 4 in October 2021. However, Walther apparently wasn’t satisfied that it was the best gun they could build specifically for women’s hands. All the while as we extolled the virtues of the PDP Compact, Walther engineers were working furiously behind the scenes on the PDP F-Series—a women specific model announced today. Meet the Walther PDP-F, a totally reimagined gun just for women.

If you’re looking for firearms training, you might be overwhelmed with the options available to you. There are so many schools and instructors that it can be hard to figure out which one makes the most sense for your particular situation, but asking these five questions can help you narrow it down. Here are some tips from columnist Jo Deering.

In a recent column about self-defense and situational awareness, we noted that “from a statistical perspective, men are far more likely to be physically violent towards women than the other way around.” That’s absolutely true according to these FBI statistics from 2018. What’s also absolutely true according to those statistics is that, sometimes, the “bad guy” is a girl. What then?

f you’re a hunter, there’s a good chance you’ve got some taxidermy around the house somewhere. And if you’re like me, there’s a good chance you admire and enjoy it, but don’t give it much thought outside of that. You might not think about your taxidermy as an object to be cleaned or cared for, but the truth is, you should be doing at least a little bit of upkeep in order to keep your mounts in top condition. Here’s how.

Just a few days ago, the Alabama Governor’s One-Shot Turkey Hunt crowned a new turkey-hunting hero, Linda Powell. The Governor’s Hunt is every bit as exclusive as it sounds, with a mere 64 hunters participating in the invitation-only 2022 event. Powell may seem to have been an underdog in comparison to her star-studded competition, but that would only be to those who don’t know her as well as we do here on NRA Women ... 

Silencer Central and Hannah Barron have some things in common, most notably their dedication to breaking the social stigma that still surrounds so many aspects of the shooting sports. Barron has been an advocate for women in the outdoors all her life, but she first came to America’s attention back in 2016 when she had a video of herself “noodling” go viral on social media. If the word “noodling” got your attention, that’s because nothing is quite as attention-grabbing as getting the attention of a catfish by grabbing its throat. With, er, your bare hands ...

Happy Hundredth Birthday, Federal! Each month through the end of 2022, Federal Ammunition will be uploading content focused on the rich history of this American ammunition company. Along with the monthly online content, Federal Ammunition has released a 244-page book, Federal Ammunition: The First Hundred Years,  preserving the company’s history. Oh, and you can also win 54,000 rounds of ammo ...
