SPRINGFIELD XDs REVIEW

The Springfield Armory XD-S is a long-awaited derivative of the popular and proven XD series of pistols, and was designed for everyday carry and deep concealment. As an owner of several XD series pistols (and sometimes referred to as the crazy XD lady), I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one of these to give it a try!

Specs:

The XD-S is a single-stack compact pistol chambered in .45ACP.  The overall length is 6.3” with a slim width of only 1”. … Read the rest

HEELS AND HOLSTERS – AN OVERVIEW OF THE CC HOLSTER FASHION SHOW

Kitty Richards’ awesome gun heels

Although all the hype about  the Concealed Carry Holster Fashion Show was primarily about the runway show itself, there was really much more to the event than just heels and holsters.  In fact, there was an entire day and evening of education available for women interested in responsible firearm ownership and use

Some notes about the event :

  • The purpose of the event was to educate, empower and enable safe and responsible firearm ownership
  • Tickets sold out in advance – we expect a larger group next year!

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.

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

GIRLS GUN GETAWAY, CC FASHION SHOW AND MORE…

Hey everybody!

You may have seen my tweets and status updates about a Girls Gun Getaway (#GirlsGunGetaway). I am excited to announce that the time has finally arrived to pack my bags and head out for a weekend of friends, shooting, explosions, hunting, and whatever else our clever minds come up with.

As if one getaway isn’t enough, I will be flying back to home-base on Monday night, (make it back home around 2AM Tuesday morning).  I then fly out to Vegas with some good friends and won’t be back home until July.… 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

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
