“I WILL NEVER…” PART 1: CORE BELIEFS

A few months ago, I posted an article The Hard Questions – Gracie’s Fireside Chat. This article posed a handful of questions that every person should consider before they carry a gun, or expect to use one for defense. It was also a key article in my series on the defensive mindset. Today we continue the project of  asking ourselves tough questions so that we can continue to build our personal tactical doctrine.

My Sifu once told the whole class that our home work was to make an “I will never …” list.… 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.

GIRLS AND GUNS| A POST BY REBECCAGUNS

FINDING THE RIGHT FIREARMS INSTRUCTOR

Yes, it’s me, teaching a Street Carry class.

Choosing a good firearms instructor is critical to getting effective and accurate training. There are so many options out there and the choices can be overwhelming. I would say that “shopping” for the right instructor is just like shopping for the right handgun. So many choices and opinions, but in the end it’s a very personal decision. Here are a few (I’m sure not all) considerations you should take into account when deciding who’s going to train you:

Is he/she the right instructor for the job? … Read the rest
