Synopsis

This documentary explores the female perspective on an object whose history is deeply bound to men and masculinity. The classic Hollywood portrayals of pistol-packing mamas, tomboy sharpshooters, sexually twisted femme fatales and high-heeled, cold-blooded assassins are caricatures. In truth, the typical woman who hangs out at rifle ranges and keeps ammunition in her purse is the girl next door, the single mom, a hard-working sister or aunt. Maybe she's a realist or has learned tough lessons from life; either way, she cares about her personal safety and may even find salvation, comfort or something satisfying in possessing a gun.
