I feel very strongly that women should not only carry a firearm, but be very knowledgeable on the gun they carry, know gun safety and know how to very accurately use their gun.
Women and children are vulnerable and I feel today, more than ever that women should be knowledgeable on the varying ways they can protect themselves and their families from two and even four legged predators. Not to mention, it is our RIGHT!
Ladies, if you are unfamiliar with a firearm, you can get assistance with AGirlAndAGun website. I highly recommend them and know that you will be well taken care of. I had the privilege to interview Julianna Crowder who established A Girl and A Gun. They are spread out all over the United States and I am sure there will be a chapter near you.
As a woman that regularly carries a firearm, I’d like to also recommend the FlashBang holsters because they are designed for women by women and therefore they are light in weight and are available in varying styles to accommodate your attire and carrying preferences. I also had the privilege to interview Lisa Looper owner of FlashBang Holsters. I had a hard time finding a comfortable holster and one that did not leave my hips sore after a long trek until I found the FlashBang holsters.
Another for-women-only holster that has been reviewed on this blog is the Can Can Concealment Holster.
Once I became a mother, my whole world changed. It was no longer just about me, it was about how I could protect my children no matter what the circumstance. The only thing more important than my family is God and their livelihood is always my first concern. Being sure that I am capable of protecting them became of utmost importance to me.
Ladies, I’d like to leave you with one last thought regarding firearms. We were out adventuring one day and we left in a rush. I forgot my pistol and my husband said to me “GREAT, so who is going to have my back?“. That is all I needed to hear and I have never gone anywhere else without it. It is just as much a part of my attire as are my shoes.
