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.

There are people who are attacking that right, that freedom to make a choice. The NRA’s stance here is right on and  it makes me proud.

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.

WHY CALEB WOULD WALK 500 MILES AND OTHER GREAT READS

I have been traveling a lot lately – and that’s not about to stop until the end of July when I return home from the Concealed Carry Holster Fashion Show in Hudson, NY. That doesn’t mean I’m done traveling for the year, just that things will slow down a bit for me. I apologize for how infrequent my articles have been as of late due to my hectic schedule.

I am hoping to have a holster review up for you this week (fingers crossed), so please keep an eye out for that.… Read the rest

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

MY ADVENTURE AT CRIMSON TRACE

This article is purely about my trip to CTC, I will be following it up with more articles about lasers as they are my latest fascination. In follow up articles I will go into more detail about the pros and cons of the laserguards vs. the lasergrips, tactics for using a laser, etc.

When I realized that Crimson Trace is located in my own backyard (Wilsonville, OR), I was determined to find out more. I am a fan of the Crimson Trace products, so naturally I was curious about work that goes into making their products.… Read the rest
