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 3 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.

I need your help...

Many of you know I’ve been working on a book for women shooters, starting at the beginning, finding and instructor, buying a gun and going through concealed carry and unarmed defense (or as I like to think of it, buying time to get to where I can use my gun). 
I’m so close to being finished, but I need to add just a bit more to get to my word count.  If you were reading a book like the one described above, what would you want to read in it?  Any topic or something special you would like to see addressed?  You might identify something I haven’t thought of, and if it is something you are interested in, there are probably lots of other women who would have a similar question or thought.
Thanks for your help!  I will keep you posted on the progress.  It is currently set for a spring release.
Safe Shooting!

  1. A few ideas:
    * Concealed carry with young children in tow
    *At the other end of the spectrum, CC and the older woman-seniors that are healthy enough to carry. Any special things they need to consider such as ways to adapt a gun to make it easier to use with arthritic hands etc.
    * holster options that fit the female form
    *how not to be intimidated in a gun store
    *how to safely carry while pregnant; good holster options for changing shape. Do you need to stand or hold a gun differently because balance is different
    *pictures of types of clothing that work to conceal that would appeal to young, middle age and older shooters
    * how to tell someone you are dating that you are carrying

    That is all I can think of off the top of my head. Hope that helps.

  2. Can't wait to read the book. While I am a avid reader, I buy very few. The librarians know me on a first name basis. I have found that most books are meant to be read one time. Yours, I will buy because I really enjoy your site.
