MY FAVORITE GUNS

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

COUPLE ACCIDENTALLY SHOT IN GUN SAFETY CLASS

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.… Read the rest

BLING FOR YOUR KEYRING

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“. It is also available in .30-06 with the SST bullet.… Read the rest

MREs, CRKT KNIVES, AND WHY YOU DIDN’T SEE ME AT THE NRA ANNUAL MEETING

I’d like to start out by apologizing to the many people who emailed and tweeted me (is that the right verb?)  hoping to get together at the NRA Annual Meeting this year. It was really hard for me to give up going, as I was looking forward to meeting my fans and so many other great people – in particular my personal role models Julie Golob and Massad Ayoob. However, after much consideration, I realized that it was a no-brainer; I needed to stay and help our heroes.… Read the rest

GET ON THE GROUND!

A few interesting facts about my life…

Ever wonder where your dogs are going to be and what they are going to be doing when you have to shoot an intruder?

As many of you know I have three dogs. I am an animal lover through and through – which is why I don’t ever want to put my dogs in a situation where they could get shot. Most people who train their dogs to respond during a home invasion train their dogs to attack, I’ve taken the opposite approach.… Read the rest

CARRYING MORE THAN JUST A GUN AT THE 2012 OLYMPICS

It’s not every day you see an  olympic worthy female shooter, and even more rare to see one who’s carrying more than just a gun! 29-year-old Malaysian shooter Nur Suryani Mohamed Taibi  will be shooting in the London Olympics this year, and at the same time she will approximately 33 weeks (8 months) pregnant.

Nur  has already kicked some serious booty in shooting games overseas. She took a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi and a  bronze medal at the Asian Games in Guangzhou in 2010.  … Read the rest
