Women of Weatherby
OUR MISSION: EMPOWER & INSPIRE THE DREAMS OF ALL WOMEN HUNTERS AND SHOOTERS
The number of women target shooters, hunters, and gun owners has increased dramatically since the start of the new millennium. Did you know women comprised 19.4% of hunters in 2013? That’s an 85% increase in female hunters since 2001. *Statistics from NSSF
The next step to meet the needs of this growing population is a firearm designed for women, by women. And we have done just that!
For the last year we have been building a women’s rifle from the ground up based on measurements and suggestions that we have received from all ends of the earth. We heard from all the Women of Weatherby representatives. We heard from everyone that commented online. Then we sent it across the country to see just how well the fit and feel of the new Weatherby Vanguard Camilla rifle was. Everyone loved it, so now we’re bringing it to you. Currently in production, and coming to a retail location near you.
The most unique aspect of the Camilla is the stock, painstakingly developed to fit the widest variety of women. The butt features a negative angle, reduced heel-to-toe dimension, and the toe angled away from the body to better fit the female’s anatomy. The 13” length of pull reduces overall length and weight, creating a compact, balanced and fast-handling rifle. The pistol grip has a trigger finger groove, right side palm swell, slim radius, and short grip-to-trigger reach for consistent trigger contact and increased control. The short, slim forearm also adds to the balanced feel. The high comb and Monte Carlo cheek piece provides optimal cheek weld and eye-to-scope alignment for fast target acquisition. A rifle specifically for women must have a beautiful, elegant look so Weatherby chose Turkish A-grade walnut with a satin finish, Fleur-de-lis checkering, and rosewood forend and grip caps.
