Concealed Carry

THE PINK GUN DEBATE

My Sprinfield XD .40 subcompact with the extended magaizne, and my 4.5 in XDM 9mm in PINK!

Four of the Sig P238s have come through my classes in the recent past, and I have had the opportunity to both shoot them as well as observe them in the hands of my students.

I realize that the P238 is by no means a newer gun, but with them recently becoming more popular with the female students in my classes, I would like say a few words regarding it’s functionality for both myself and my students.… Read the rest

The purpose of this article is not to knock on compact , subcompact, or  pocket pistols. In fact, I have quite a few compact and subcompacts that I really like.  I have had a lot of inquiries as to why I go to all the trouble of carrying my full-sized Springfield XD and XD(M)s as opposed to something like the Ruger LC9. The reason I am writing this is simply to explain my thought process behind why I carry full-sized handgun.… Read the rest

RUGER LC9 REVIEW

The Ruger LC9 has made quite the boom in the firearm industry. It seems that every girl and her sister either owns or wants one. I’ve seen a lot of them showing up my classes lately; so when Armed in Heels asked if I was interested, it seemed only natural to do a write-up on the LC9 .

My review has been written based on performance in both the hands of the beginner shooters as well as experienced shooters, including my own. … Read the rest

WHY WE TRAIN

This is a guest post I did for Train to Carry on why it is so important that we get proper training before carrying concealed.

All too often I hear of women who bought a handgun or received one as a gift, shot a few rounds through it (maybe they took a basic handgun course, maybe they didn’t) then they threw it in their purse and forgot about it.

A BREAKDOWN OF THE UN-OFFICIAL “US MARINE CORPS RULES”

Un-Official U.S. Marine Corps Rules:   

(Words in pink are Packing Pretty’s thoughts and comments)

2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.Read the rest
