I've been entertaining this idea recently to help get more people into guns, or even just help get people less afraid of them.
Why don't we start a Hawaii chapter of the Pink Pistols?
For those who aren't familiar with the Pink Pistols (pinkpistols.org), it's a shooting club intended to teach gay people how to safely and effectively use a gun to defend themselves. "Armed gays don't get bashed, " as they say.
According to some quick Google fu, Hawaii has the second largest LGBT community per capita in the nation, giving us a large demographic to try to recruit. I'd be willing to organize it (if no one more qualified is up for it), but a few instructors to help volunteer to teach, or some people who have been in this state longer than me and know how to reach the community better would be most helpful.
What do you guys think? Would such an organization help our community grow in numbers and strength?
