is the Foundation Sponsor for Babes with Bullets ™. Since the camps started in April 2004 it has been Smith & Wesson that stepped forward with financial support so that women could attend camp at a discounted price. Smith & Wesson also provides all the loaner equipment in both handguns and rifles so that campers attending who do not have a gun have the opportunity to “try before they buy.”
Having both S&W handguns (.22 caliber along with the 9mm M&P) and also S&W rifles (.22 caliber and .223 caliber) is invaluable! Even if a woman owns her own firearm quite often if traveling by air to the camp she will not want to bring her gun along. This gives women an option of coming with their own gun or using one of the S&W “loaner” guns.
