Anger about female bringing weapon (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

rifle

Here is my best explanation:

'weapon' is the definition.

(rifle is a kind of weapon)

'anger about female' is the subsidiary indication.

'anger' becomes 'rile' (I've seen this in other clues).

'about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'female' becomes 'f' (abbreviation).

'rile' going around 'f' is 'rifle'.

'bringing' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for rifle that I've seen before include "Sack; firearm", "Gun with long_barrel", "Ransack; a weapon", "Firearm - plunder", "Sack; gun", "Rummage", "Pillage; a weapon", "Carbine", "Standard military gun fired from shoulder" and "Flier (anag.)".)
