The year 2021 saw millions more women purchasing guns, comprising more than one-third of first-time buyers. But what guns were women buying? For several years The Well Armed Woman (TWAW) has surveyed and reported on results shared by as many as 6,000 women. You can see the results from the 2020 survey here. So did much change from 2020 to 2021? After all, 2020 was a record-breaking year for women buying guns. TWAW aims to find out through its latest survey. 

Why is this survey so important? For one, on top of yielding interesting information, it helps guide and educate the firearms industry in the needs and preferences of women gun owners—and inform them on who the American woman gun owner is. TWAW says the data collected through this anonymous survey also helps them to provide the very best products, content and service for all women gun owners. Won’t you be one of them? 

If you have privacy concerns over sharing such information in an online format, TWAW Founder Carrie Lightfoot quells those fears. "The survey and data collected is done on our website—not Google or any other third-party tool," she said. "We don’t collect or ask for any personal or identifiable information, and I personally analyze the data."

If you need more incentive to enter, this year respondents have the option to enter to win a prize—a beautiful GTM Blue Distressed Leather Concealed Carry Tote (a $195 value).
