LIVING IT UP AT CRIMSON TRACE MEDIA DAYS

Saturday night, my husband, Dave and I checked in to Hotel 50 in downtown Portland, Oregon to kick off the Crimson Trace Media Days. After meeting up with Shelley Rae from Western Shooting Journal, we headed down to Portland City Grill for happy hour and dinner with the media group as well some really great reps from Nike, Otis, Danner, and of course Iain and the gang from Crimson Trace. Leatherman was kind enough to sponsor our dinner and drinks and provide us each with a LED LENSER P3 flashlight.… Read the rest

TAKING A STAND ON THE UN ARMS TREATY

This is not a political blog, the second amendment is for everybody, despite their political views. The right to choose whether or not to own firearm does not discriminate. The right to defend one’s self does not discriminate.  It’s about having the ability and the freedom to make a choice.

15 YEAR OLD GIRL DEFENDS HERSELF WITH …

One spike

…the spike on a track shoe.

This is the story of a 15-year-old girl who has a very clear understanding of  the “everything is a weapon” concept I preach about so much. She used the spikes on her track shoes to fend off a man who was attempting to kidnap her.

Read the entire story here.

As long as we are talking about spikes and shoes, I would like to point out these spiked loafers.

COUPLE ACCIDENTALLY SHOT IN GUN SAFETY CLASS
