We launched a new Golden Bullseye Award category this year in recognition of the fastest-growing segment of the shooting world: women. With more and more products designed specifically for women, it is time to recognize the best of the bunch.

Not only does the EAA Witness Pavona come in a wide array of frame colors, it also boasts practical designs to make it easier for new female shooters to handle. Lighter recoil and hammer springs make racking the Pavona’s slide significantly easier than most semi-automatic handguns. Sensible weight means it can be carried without difficulty, yet the pistol retains enough mass to dampen recoil. Snag-resistant sights and controls further enhance ease-of-carry. With these enhancements to the proven CZ 75-style platform, the Witness is an ideal handgun for women and new shooters alike, and its multiple frame colors enhance its fashion appeal.

“At 7 yards, the Pavona was chewing up a bullseye with such monotonous ease, one of the range officers looked over my shoulder and said, ‘Hey, write my name!’” —Tamara Keel.
