Syren, reengineering shotguns for women



Camo is the New Black’s Co-Founder Whitney was beyond excited to learn about Syren shotguns for women at this year’s SHOT Show.  And when we saw this review from Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s Vice President of Marketing Bob St. Pierre we had to share it.  Do any of you use a Syren?  We wonder how these guns field test and would love to know what you think!
