About Me

I hold multiple NRA Instructor credentials, as well as SabreRed Pepper Spray. I have my own training company in Northern Virginia, www.FemaleandArmed.com and am focusing primarily on teaching women, especially those who are new to shooting.

I am also the author of 4 books, available on Amazon, and at many major outlets. I am a contributing writer for Combat Handgun Magazine and Women and Guns Magazine.

Thank you for following along with me as this journey continues.

Safe Shooting!

How do I say Thank You?

You, my readers, have given me so much.  Your time, your attention, your thoughts and insights, your encouragement…In less than two months I went from my very first tentative post to over 2500 page views.  I am truly humbled and overwhelmed.  I feel like I have a whole community of new friends!  I know, I don’t get mushy often.  J 

To show my appreciation I would like to send a small gift to one lucky reader to be randomly drawn from those who respond to this post (or email at the address in the About Me information to the right). 

When I hit 3000 I will draw a name and contact you to find out how to mail you my thank you.

Practice Safe, Be Safe, Safe Shooting all!

  9. You've grown a lot for only having been posting for two months! Congratulations! Our blog has been up going on two years and we only have half the hits (I like to think it's because we were ahead of our time *grin*).

    Your contribution to female shooters is excellent - just knowing there's a suport system out there for us make us feel much more comfortable :)

  13. Love your post and admire your courage. Your blog is very influential. As a robbery victim, I was once been gun point to my forehead. I always wonder what would happened if I had a gun or learn some self protection skills. Before the incident, I never thought gun could be use as self protection weapon. Instead, I always thought weapon is there to do harm not protection. After the incident, I change my thoughts about weapon. I think every lady should learn these skills for self protection. I admire your spirit and keep up the good work.
