I took a look at the survey, I think this is a great start! Just want to clarify...is this survey "by" and "for" CG/CGSSA? Thank you!

I am a C3 Leader and CGSSA Coordinator and there's been a recent interest in CGSSA to offer programs for women. I'm trying to assist with providing meaningful data so that a starting point can be found.

Hrm...I can't figure out what might be the problem. I've tried the survey from two different browsers and the check-boxes worked on both. Can you explain what is happening? Or perhaps it's possible to try a different browser?

BK, it's working now, and thanks for doing this. We should probably make at least an annual survey. Maybe add a question on gender, knowing some will not be truthful.

How can we see the results so far?

(BK, maybe you should lock it, or take it down after some reasonable point, so it doesn't get gooped up by fools)

Yes, I have been monitoring the responses as they come in and hope to put together the results soon. So far there have been 25 respondents. Because we've received a steady trickle of responses, I think I'll keep the survey up for one more week.

Remember, in order to help us get a true and accurate picture of women's needs, I kindly ask that no men take the survey, either out of curiosity or to answer on behalf of a woman in your life. Thank you!


CG Women - here is that link again! http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PH9NJQS

It will take a while for me to crunch numbers and compile the data. I also need to present the info to CalGuns and CGSSA. So, while I plan to share the results here, it will be a while. Just keep hanging tight!

CalGuns/CGSSA Women’s Survey 2013 Results


A few weeks ago, I invited the women in the Ladies' forum to complete an anonymous online survey to help us get a pulse on their interests and concerns as they relate to CalGuns/CGSSA. 25 responses were received. Please note that, while I took care to fashion the survey based on general social science methodology, this is NOT a scientific survey. I also apologize for the awkward formatting - the type and spacing did not translate over as well as I had hoped.


What is your age?:

15-18: 0%
19-24: 0%
25-30: 8.3%
31-40: 29.2%
41-50: 33.3%
51-60: 16.7%
61-70: 8.3%
71+: 4.2%

NOTE: 62.5% of the women age in range from 31 to 50 years old



What is your current experience level with firearms?

None - I have never shot a gun before: 0%
Introductory - I have shot a handful of times: 20%
1-2 Years: 32%
3-5 Years: 12%
6-9 Years: 4%
10-15 Years: 8%
15+ Years: 12%

Other (manually entered responses):

- 6 months, but with 10,000 rounds
- Lifetime off and on; no formal classes
- 50+ years



Based on your own perceived skill-level, which types of firearms are you comfortable with?

Handgun: 100%
Rifle: 60%
Shotgun: 44%

Other: N/A

NOTE: All women responding indicated feeling comfortable with handguns. Shotguns were “least preferred” at 44%.



In your own words, describe your skill-level, previous training or level-of-comfort with firearms:

Note: There were 25 responses received and answers were coded by content/keywords. For example, a response stating, “I am a former police officer and I now teach NRA courses” would tally one for “LEO/Military” and one for “Firearms Instructor”.

Beginner: (9)
Intermediate: (5)
Advanced: (7)
LEO/Military: (2)
Have taken classes: (13)
No formal training: (1)
Competitive shooter: (1)
CCW: (3)
Firearms instructor: (3)
Feeling scared/nervous: (1)



Which activities are you interested in?

Very Interested -- Interested -- Maybe Interested -- Not Interested

Women On Target (Beginners):
25% -- 20.8% -- 20.8% -- 33.3%

Intermediate/Advanced Courses:
45.8% -- 25% -- 20.8% -- 8.3%

Personal Protection/In The Home:
45.8% -- 41.7% -- 4.2% -- 8.3%

Sporting Clays:
18.2% -- 18.2% -- 31.8% -- 31.8%

Competition Shooting:
18.2% -- 9.1% -- 36.4% -- 36.4%

Casual Range Get-Togethers:
37.5% -- 33.3% -- 25% -- 4.2%

Social Events:
30.4% -- 26.1% -- 34.8% -- 8.7%

Political/Grassroots Campaigns:
12.5% -- 25% -- 33.3% -- 29.2%

Hunting Clinic:
9.1% -- 13.6% -- 4.5% -- 72.7%

Other (# of suggestions):

CCW Courses: 1
Black Powder: 1

NOTE: Based on ratings of “Very Interested” and “Interested” - Intermediate/Advanced Courses, Personal Protection/In The Home, Casual Get-Togethers and Social Events were the clear winners.



What can CalGuns do to help you as a woman shooter?

Keep Us Informed on Gun Rights: (4)
Not Sure: (4)
Offer More Training: (3)
Offer Female Only Events: (3)
CGN is Fine As-Is: (2)
Educate Women on Guns: (2)
Treat Women as Equals: (2)
Provide Hassle-Free Environment: (1)
Offer Vendor Discounts: (1)
Directory of Services: (1)
Provide Support to Beginners: (1)
Fight for our Gun Rights: (1)
Women’s CGN T-shirt: (1)
Continue Range Meet-ups: (1)

NOTE: These were free-form responses that were coded and grouped by keyword or topic



Please add any additional comments that you wanted to add, but were not covered by the survey:


-- Still waiting on that Women's CGN shirt that had a thread some time back.

-- I loved the local cal guns event that I attended. It was a fun thing. Either women don't know we exist and they think its just the old guys club. We need to get women more active. I don't want more beginners courses because I'm not a beginner, however I DO want to have those courses available so we can get the women more involved. I just want to make sure that is not the ONLY thing that CALGUNS focuses on. Even the comp shooting does not have to be women only. I think my local area needs that as part of their focus. It gets everyone involved into knowing their abilities, and more in tune with their weapon. Shooting is not just paper targets. When I brought up comp shooting in the past, I was directed to locations much too far away. Their are all kinds of comps in my area, just not training. [NOTE: Response was edited to remove member's location.]

-- I enjoy reading the Ladies Forum. Wish there were more posts/activity though.

-- BadKitty, always the diplomat, always the open minded and well informed participant, I would trust leading any event that furthers women's place in the sport. [NOTE: I feel a little "embarrassed" that someone commented on me. For the record, I did not enter that comment nor do I know the person who did. :/ But, thank you for the very kind comment.]

-- What I have discovered so far has been very helpful.

-- I'm not sure it it is appropriate to suggest this, but what about CG providing more sourced-base research and analysis on available firearms and upcoming legislation. Lots of opinion out there...I realize that is what a forum provides, just looking to wade thru the muck a little easier! No offense to anyone Thanks for the opportunity to speak.


------------------------


Thank you all for participating. This really helps us get an idea of where everyone is at when it comes to planning for the future.


BK
