Do You (Or…your wife, your daughter, your mom) Carry Pepper Spray? Then READ THIS.

I was recently at the IWA show in Germany and had the opportunity to catch up with some great folks in the personal defense industry. One of those was SABRE executive David Nance. I had the opportunity to speak with him at  the SABRE booth and discuss some of  their featured products. One of the […]

And You Think Nobody is Paying Attention?

  This story is really shines some light on the over-reactive state of our nation in regard to firearms.  Worth the read. I hope this man is getting the support, and the public apology, that he deserves. Home is Raided over a Facebook Picture

Be a Fricken’ Organization Goddess.

When I was a little girl, my father worked for the leading “Cola” companies at various stages in his career. Pepsi-Co, Coca Cola Corp, etc. Beyond the obvious perk of free soda (which I now refuse to drink)…we would also receive a great deal of accessories from different marketing campaigns the companies were running.

Want to hit something? Read this!

Let’s face it – there are about 110 million things that most women would rather do with their day than read an article about how to strike at something. Trust me, I get it!  And it is EXACTLY that reason that I am encouraging women to read my article about that very subject! Why? Well, […]

I went for integrated in every sense of the word. Unarmed, Armed, Behavioral and Intuitive. Many programs are very linear in […]

Car Maintenance = Smart Self Defense

Car Maintenance = Smart Self Defense

Now, some may think I have lost my mind posting things about car maintenance, however, I assure you that I haven’t. (Well, at least not more than usual!) It’s pretty simple, a woman stranded on the side of the road with a broken down car is as much of a target as a woman standing […]
