Changing the Rules for Tools

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.

Lethal Force Is No Laughing Matter

Part of being a responsible and safe gun owner is understanding how you can hurt your defense by something you might be doing unknowingly and unintentionally. If you ever have to use lethal force to save your life or protect a life of another, your character will be called into question. Your persona on social media will paint a portrait of your character. The memes that are somewhat inappropriate, controversial, or what you think is funny will be used to describe your mindset. Inappropriate signs in your home or bumper stickers on your car will sabotage your defense as you are trying to prove your analytical mindset and your understanding of the law and Use of Force.

Come Shoot With Me! Christi Tate Tells How to Invite Other Women to Shoot

Christi says, “I invited the women to shoot with me. It’ll just be fun, the camaraderie and shooting together again. I wouldn’t know any of these gals if not for the Brownells Fall Fest match.

It just takes being creative and getting the people. Why can’t we do this everywhere?”

Gun Shaming Is Damaging Our Industry

It is fine if you are a fan of a specific manufacture, and have a gun that you are loyal to and would rather cut off your trigger finger than ever be forced to shoot a different gun. But sometimes the gun is going to choose you and not the other way around. You are entitled to your opinion, but if it isn’t yours and you don’t have to shoot it, keep your gun-shaming comments to yourself.
