Concealed weapons permits in Great Falls has risen sharply in the last year, especially among woman.

According to Captain Raymond Hitchcock of the Cascade County Sheriff’s Office, “I have seen a significant increase in concealed carry applications”.

Hitchcock also stated that they are now processing upward of 70 applications per week.

Female gun ownership in Great Falls is at its highest level in over 20 years.

Women are taking ownership of their own security and like the ability to protect themselves, and they rely on firearms as the means to do so.

One difference about the female gun owner, “They are very interested in safety, training and care of the firearm,” stated Steve Rider, Gun Manager at Scheels Sporting Goods.

The planet Uranus is now in the sign of Aries. Uranus is about emancipation from rules and structure that inhibit us and looks for revolutionary new ideas. Aries is the sign if instinct, adventure and rules warfare and the tools of warfare.

During this Uranus Aries transit there will be an increase in arms investments, gun ownership, and gun rights will be more of a focus during this time.

Sheels Sporting Goods will be conducting a Concealed Weapons Permit class on Saturday, April 12, from 9:00 AM to 1:00PM. Bryan Wheat, a firearms instructor, certified by the NRA and Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification, will teach this class. You will be able to carry in 38 states.
