Setting a Good Example

It really irks me every time I read Shannon Watts Mom’s Demand Action for Gun Sense in America’s leader describe members of Open Carry Texas as rapists. It makes me just as sick to hear threats of sexual violence against Ms. Watts. Though I do not believe that Shannon Watts is all that trustworthy, I don’t doubt for a second she has received threats to her life.

Six Safety Tips for Women

I have good news! Crime rates are dropping across the country. Women are less likely to be victims of crime and the numbers of reported rapes are decreasing. However, women report feeling higher levels of fear of crime than men do, even though young men are more likely to be victims of crime than women are.

9mm Beretta Nano Review

I am surprised to be the first author who writes for The Shooter’s Log to pen a range report for the 9mm Beretta BU9 Nano as it has been available a little over two years. Perhaps it is because pocket 9s have saturated the market and we have been too busy reviewing others, but somehow I get to be the first to review it. Either way, I’m excited I get to go in without any influence from my cohorts.

Holsters for Women. Stop Telling Me My Choices Suck!

“I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it.” – Marilyn Monroe

I generally avoid ranting on any of my blog posts. However, being an Internet blogger means I get to break the rules a little bit. Like being able to start a sentence with like and and. So, I’m going to go ahead and skate on thin ice here, break the rules and write about something that has been chapping my hide lately.

Women Afield — CCW Undergarment Options

The ability to obtain a permit to carry a firearm on your person varies depending upon which state you are referring to. For example some states have a “shall issue” policy which means officials will issue a private citizen a CCW (Concealed Carry Weapons) permits as long as they meet all requirements. While other states have a “May Issue” policy which means they have authority to take judgment on whether or not they want to issue a CCW permit to a private citizen even after all requirements have been met. And finally there is the hot button phrase “Right Denied” which means a state will NOT allow a private citizen to carry handguns and do not issue CCW permits. The last state to have such as policy was Illinois. However, thanks to dedicate pro-gun proponents, it looks like Illinois will soon begin to offer some version of a CCW permit to residents who meet the requirements.

Femme Fatale Holsters: Pretty Holsters That Work

Let’s face it ladies, most of the mainstream holster manufactures do not cater to us. When I discover a company owned by women designing shooting-related gear just for us, I get excited about it. No one knows better about the struggles we go through to find gear that not only fits but also looks good, than other women shooters.

All states differ in their requirements in issuing a concealed carry permit.

Are You Ready To Conceal Carry?

The number of first-time gun owners has steadily increased over the last year. Over half of all gun owners report the primary reason for owning a gun is for self-defense. The majority of gun owners believe their right to defend themselves extends beyond their home. If you are considering joining the eight million Americans who hold concealed carry permits, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself before proceeding.

Our test sample was the Satchel Brown Model, made of distressed leather and aged hardware. A separate concealed-carry compartment is accessible for right- or left-handed carriers. A removable shoulder strap allows for cross-body draw. The large main compartment is full of built-in pockets and dividers. This is a big bag, our team said. Although big bags are in fashion, they believe the bag should be smaller to limit overall weight when carrying. Upside: It will hold a handgun as large as a 6-inch Python.

Concealed Carrie: Fashionable Carry for Women

Concealed Carrie is a women’s concealed-carry handbag manufacturer based in Roswell, Georgia. Concealed Carrie’s story began when Tom and Leslie Deets decided to visit a firing range in the Atlanta area a few years ago. Tom’s prior experience in law enforcement, his strong endorsement of the right to bear arms, and his mission to promote safety through education convinced him that the best protection he could give his family was to equip them to protect themselves.
