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

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.

Hey everybody!

As if one getaway isn’t enough, I will be flying back to home-base on Monday night, (make it back home around 2AM Tuesday morning).  I then fly out to Vegas with some good friends and won’t be back home until July.… Read the rest

BREAKING BOARDS AND TAKING NAMES

Packing Pretty is a self-defense blog. While I primarily focus on my area of expertise (firearms and shooting), I want to make sure that several types of defense are introduced and covered here at Packing Pretty.

Just last weekend I had the pleasure of watching  an awesome demonstration at USWC Taekwondo by Amanda. The first thing I noticed about Amanda was that she exerted an aura of confidence, strength and determination that was seen and felt by all who watched her. … Read the rest

BLING FOR YOUR KEYRING

The Mighty Pen Company Bullet Keychains in
.223 Zombie Z-Max, and .308 SST

Here are just a few of the cool products you will find at The Mighty Pen Company. I saw this .308 round (150 grain) key chain with the SST bullet and knew it had to be mine. I have an affinity for ammunition (I absolutely love ballistics) and for the .308 in particular.  The .223/5.56 Hornady Zombie Z-Max round key chain was a close second for my favorite “bullet key chain“.… Read the rest
