By Sandra Kozero. The Gift of Fear and Other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence is a must-read for anyone who owns a firearm for protection against personal and family threats of violence. We must be able to differentiate between, and correctly respond to, actual life threatening situations and inconsequential head noise. Although de Becker does not challenge our second amendment right, he frequently outlines the possession of firearms as an indicator to violence and even wrote a separate appendix section focusing on “Gun Safety.”
My final analysis is that the Voodoo Tactical Mini Tobago Pack has proven itself to be a great all-around, multi-purpose day pack. It is sturdy and roomy, without being so oversized as to be unwieldy for grab-and-go use. But it also has the features of a much larger “tactical” pack, making it capable and organized where other daypacks fail. I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up.
This clever little CMMG adapter has allowed me to give new life to my old AR friend. She isn’t a safe-orphan anymore. She is now a ridiculously fun little plinker, which will get much more use in monthly steel matches than the other gun does in thrice yearly 3-Gun.
I usually come back from SHOT Show with a list of guns I want to buy, but this year was different. This year I found a NEW favorite thing, and it’s NOT a gun! Believe it or not – it’s a phone case. But it’s not the case itself that makes me so excited. It’s what the case holds that makes me happy. This phone case holds … tools! This set-up is from Klecker Knives and Tools and they’re called Stowaway Tools. These tools (up to four at a time) take up no more room than my traditional phone case already does, and my phone never leaves my body while I am awake, so I am more prepared for emergencies now without any extra hassle. And the piece de resistance: real tweezers! I’m telling you, Leatherman tweezers are wholly inadequate for use by a middle-age female.
Here’s my simple answer – it depends. Let me explain. First of all, this is not a discussion of stopping power and caliber. I want to talk about size, ease of carry, ease of use, and dependability. I am a small woman, and a “mature” (read: 56-years-old) woman. My hands are very small and I […]

By Sandra Kozero During a recent A Girl and A Gun/Cornered Cat Instructor Development course, I was able to get my hands on a couple boxes of Winchester’s new Train and Defend ammunition in 9mm. The idea behind this “W” line is that it will allow shooters to train with a nearly identical recoil round […]
by Kendra Vandervalk: Risking Health, Liberty, and Sanity in Search of the Perfect Pair of Pocket Carry Jeans Several months ago, my husband and I were hard at work in Kohl’s in search of the unicorn of pants: plus-sized stretchy boot-cut jeans in short length with pockets deep enough to hold a gun. We’d already […]
Review By Teresa Redden, Southern Indiana Chapter of A Girl & A Gun: We know how much you like being able to carry your pistol for protection, but do you take the extra effort to carry it on your person? The excuses women come up with are certainly valid, such as not being able to […]
Julianna had the opportunity to test fire the Rhino at SHOT Show 2013, it was a fun gun to shoot for sure! Italian gun maker Chiappa designed the totally revolutionary Rhino Revolver to significantly reduce recoil and muzzle flip. The Rhino fires from the bottom chamber of the cylinder (6:00 position) and not the conventional […]
