GRACIE MCKEE IS PACKING PRETTY – THE WHOLE STORY

I know the electronic version of this story has gone out already on Facebook and twitter, but the electronic version leaves out a lot.

For those who don’t know what I’m talking about – Sue Vorenberg , a features writer at the Columbain wrote a Sunday feature on me last weekend. I have to admit, I am both proud and humbled by what was said about me, and would like to share it with you today.

MAKING NOISE AT A GIRLS GUN GETAWAY

In my Introduction to the Girls Gun Getaway, I shared with you a little bit about how the whole event got started and who was there. Today I want to start delving in to the details. (Thank you for your patience on this subject. I spent the last week in Vegas and didn’t get a chance to write much about the subject before I flew out).

I was lucky enough to get to travel with Shelley and Anette out of Seattle and meet up with Natalie for the last leg of our journey.… Read the rest

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE GIRLS GUN GETAWAY

Many of you have probably already caught wind of the Girls Gun Getaway via #girlsgungetaway. It’s been talked about on facebook, blogged about at Ammo Land and Gunmart Blog, and tweeted about like crazy. Pictures have cropped up, and one or two have even gone viral. But what the heck was this getaway really all about? Well, as Natalie from Girls Guide to Guns explained in her article, it started out as a conversation on twitter between us ladies, and quickly grew into something much bigger and whole heck of a lot more fun then tweeting.… Read the rest

HOT CALIBER – THE STORY BEHIND THESE BULLET THEMED BEAUTIES

I have written up some pretty serious posts as of late, most of them reviews. So this week I want to lighten the mood up a bit and write about something a little more on the fun side.

As some of you may already know, I have had the Hot Caliber Renegade pendant on my Amazon universal wish list for quite some time now.  About a week ago, it arrived in my mail box. Thank you, summertime Santa!

While there is a lot of gun themed jewelry out there, the only pieces I’ve actually fallen in love with are Hot Caliber’s.… Read the rest

9 TIPS FOR WOMEN STARTING OUT IN COMPETITVE SHOOTING

I am not a professional shooter; I do not even attempt to compete outside of my local ranges.  If I were to be spending every weekend at local, regional, state, or national matches; I wouldn’t have the time to do what I really love, teaching firearms courses.  However, I do make the time to shoot and participate as a range officer in our monthly action pistol matches because I think it’s great training; it tests your capabilities as well as the capabilities of your gear under stress.… Read the rest

THE PINK GUN DEBATE

There has been a lot of dispute on the internet lately concerning pink guns. Some people think that pink guns are a sexist approach by the manufactueres to sell to women; some people think pink guns are just a desperate attempt to make women interested in  shooting to begin with; some think they look too much like a toy; and then there are those who actually like pink guns.

I usually don’t jump into these petty disputes (honestly, why are we even taking the time to write about this), but I haven’t seen anybody make the obvious arguments yet, and I’m sick of waiting.… Read the rest

PACKING PRETTY’S CONVERSATION WITH CAM FROM NRA NEWS

I had the opportunity and the privdlege of talking with Cam from the Cam and Company show on NRA News. Overall, I think it went really well. Cam brought up some really good points about the growing interest in the shooting sports from the female community.
