Well hell yeah that's what they do! I am a female and I carry and none of my firearms are pink. I am extremely proficient as I practice and am married to a former police officer so I have always had free and great training. It's not that big of a deal to live in Texas and carry. As my husband has always said, "There are a ton of evil people out there that do not care about human life."
Also, yes, cowboy church is a real thing and almost always found in rural areas. It's not uncommon or strange.
