Personal Alarms

I'm a huge advocate of the little Personal Alarm, it is a great noisemaker and distraction.
I've carried a device from Sabre Red for years on the outside of my purse, but was recently introduced to what can only be called it's big sister!

Athena, at www.GunGoddess.com told me she had just started carrying a personal alarm from Swiss Tech and I had to check it out.  Price point is similar but there in not comparison in value!

This little beauty had a flash light, a flashing red strobe, a replaceable battery, an option lanyard, a removable belt clip and a replaceable battery.  Oh, and it make a lot of noise when you push the panic button!  I added a split ring to mine so I could more easily hang in on my purse, but this little baby is awesome!!!

 
 
Head on over to Gun Goddess, http://www.gungoddess.com/bodygard-personal-alarm/ and check this out as well as the other wonderful offerings.  She is expanding her personal defense line and helping use all be safe, in addition to the other awesome fun things you can find there!!

Busy Life

I apologize for not writing more, it has been that kind of year. 

Book 2, The Home Security Handbook, will be out in August and is up on Amazon for Pre-sale. 
Book 3, Female and Armed, Advanced Defensive Techniques, is in the works for next year.  We are having a photo shoot next weekend for the book, several great shooters coming in and we will have an amazing day (hoping it doesn't rain).
Shout out to my favorite editor, Kristin!!!! 

I did a taping for a local access program last night on career choices that focused on the teaching and writing, it was a lot of fun, I'm hoping to get a link I can post.  I was nervous but once I got going...well, let's just say it helps to be passionate about your topic. 

So many blog ideas, they will be written soon, I promise.

Several ranges are hosting Daughters on the Range this weekend.  I'm so excited for them and wish I could be being one, but maybe next year.  Remember, teaching your kids safety and take away the mystique is not only fun but makes them safer.

Just had an amazing opportunity to interview Julianna Crowder, founder of A Girl and a Gun Shooting League, for a Combat Handguns magazine article.  I have met Julianna but never sat and just talked to her for almost 2 hours!  She is a dynamo, a sweetheart, and a passionate advocate for women.  I liked her before, not I respect her, too.  She is doing what she is doing to promote the sport, empower women and provide a safe comfortable environment for them to learn.

I got several new belts from Looper (aka FLASHBANG), they are gorgeous!  Post with pictures coming soon.

Athena, over at www.GunGoddess.com has been super busy finding new and fun products!  I almost don't want to go to her site because there are too many awesome things!!  check it out, you are guaranteed to find something you will love.  She just sent me a personal alarm to try, post on that soon, too!

Be safe, be well...thank you for staying with me, I will be back to posting regularly very soon!!!

Safe Shooting!
