The Ruger LC9 has made quite the boom in the firearm industry. It seems that every girl and her sister either owns or wants one. I’ve seen a lot of them showing up my classes lately; so when Armed in Heels asked if I was interested, it seemed only natural to do a write-up on the LC9 .
My review has been written based on performance in both the hands of the beginner shooters as well as experienced shooters, including my own. As I write more gun reviews, you will notice that most of them will be approached from this same angle. Amongst the ramblings of pros and cons of the gun, I will also point out whether the design is a good option for the beginner, or whether it would be better suited for the novice or experienced shooter.… Read the rest

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

My favorite firepower system is not available for civilian procurement, it does not fit in a holster and can not be set beside the bed for home defense. Nope, my favorite gun literally has a plane built around it.
For those of you who don’t already know, I love a well armored bird. And the A-10 Thunderbolt II (also known as the Warthog) is my favorite firepower system.
You can take your AR-15s, Desert Eagles, .44 magnum, etc. Heck, you can even have my favorite Barrett .50 BMG.… Read the rest

This is why I preach about the student to teacher ratio, as well as finding the right instructor. This is also a great example of why a teacher should never leave the students alone with guns. Had there been a co-instructor, this probably wouldn’t have happened.
