PACKING PRETTY’S NEW PROJECT IS ABOUT YOU

I am currently in the process of renovating the Packing Pretty office. I’ve picked the colors (no I’m not painting the walls pink) and some of the wall art; but I need your help for the most important part. I want to surround myself with inspiration while I work, and YOU are my inspiration. You are constantly reminding me why I do what I do. Why I write, why I teach, why I care. You are what drives me, keeps me in check and encourages me to be better.… Read the rest

DRIVING ARMED – Safely Stowing Your Firearm

Carrying a gun creates all sorts of obstacles, and part of the fun is learning how to overcome them.  One of the obstacles that we often forget to learn how to work around,  and practice overcoming is carrying in a vehicle.

I know, I know … we’d all love to just forget about this  issue and have Red Jacket build us each our own armored vehicles. I wonder what kind of magic they could work on a pink Humvee?

For those of you who don’t have the option of destroying the enemy with the push of a button from inside your vehicle, I submit to you this article – the first in the “Driving Armed” series that I will be publishing.… 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

5 SHOT LEATHER CUSTOM SCABBARD IWB HOLSTER REVIEW

How I came to know 5 Shot Leather:

I am sure you have heard me mention the 5 Shot Leather IWB holsters before.  When I started carrying on a daily basis, I quickly realized the importance of a good holster. My carry piece at that point was a 4 inch Kimber Pro CDPII .45 1911. I blamed the all the discomfort I was experiencing on the big gun and the inside the waistband carry method; completely unaware that it was actually the cheap $40 holster I got at Sportsman’s Warehouse that was causing the discomfort.… Read the rest
