Women are shopping for guns.

A National Rifle Association report shows there is an increase in women purchasing firearms. Center Target Firearms in Laurel County says many women are buying guns for safety.

As more women take the step to protect themselves and their families, Center Target said it's important a woman picks out a gun she is comfortable with firing.

"Women just shouldn't be scared, if they're scared the best thing to do is shoot until you get comfortable with it, practice, don't be scared of a gun," said Erin Muise, Employee, Center Target Firearms.

Center Target said it's also important for women to make sure they practice with their gun because you want to be confident and able to safely fire it, if necessary.

"You can't just buy the gun and then just leave it in the desk drawer and expect that when you need it that you're going to be accurate, you actually have to get out and practice," Dan Smoot, Director of Operations, Center Target Firearms.
