Get Trained. Be Ready.

Marksman or Gunfighter?

I just spent an incredible nine hours training with some of the best firearms instructors in the state. You might think nine hours is a long time for training, but I had a blast. The time flew by as we were taught how to shoot better, faster, and ultimately to be both effective and efficient in the Intuitive Defensive Shooting Program. That training really got me thinking. The old cliché that “it's like riding a bike” applies to many things. When it comes to complex tasks, you might remember how to do it, i.e., riding a bike, but you won't retain the ability to do it well without extensive practice.

What do Ground Reactive Forces have to do with Shooting?

From the perspective of an individual who refuses to believe that just chance will determine ones future, I am intrigued with physics and have found the Intuitive Defensive Shooting program insightful in several ways. I have a grounded feeling that there is a truth that through the acknowledgment of physics and intuition we can have a purposeful affect upon our own lives. Plus, I would like to introduce how Ground Reactive Forces can improve performance.

Why go to a Concealed Carry Class if my state is Constitutional?

Serious Considerations


Concealed Handgun Carry License



So, you made the decision to carry a firearm, but you haven't decided to conceal or to constitutionally carry. If you're one of the few people who are willing to consider both sides of the argument, then this article is written for you.

What's the big deal with concealed carry licensure anyway? Who really needs one and who doesn’t? Many are in favor of getting proper licensure. Of those, most have done the research and realize that it is by far better to go through the class and absolutely understand the laws than listening to unlicensed and uneducated individuals discuss jailhouse law. Let's face it, everyone on social media has an opinion, and most of those opinions have no basis in fact. Allow me to ask you this question. How much do you trust people you don't know when it comes to your money and your freedom?

Ladies, A Good Handgun is Like a Good Pair of Shoes

What is the best handgun for a woman to buy? It seems like a simple thing to ask and it’s something I get asked by a lot of women I work with. I hear women tell me all the time they want to earn their carry license for self-defense purposes but have no idea where to start regarding firearm selection. Or my favorite, and sadly the most common example, women that are persuaded by a handgun counter employee to EXCLUSIVELY purchase a light weight, small caliber revolver because it’s something a woman can “handle” (que *major eyeroll*).

So, let me cut to my big idea: I reject the stereotype that this question has a “one size fits all” answer. In fact, I think a good handgun is like a good pair of shoes: it’s all about comfort, fit and wearability! You wouldn’t allow your husband or boyfriend to buy a special pair of shoes for you, would you? Finding the “best” handgun for you, is 100% all about how it achieves YOUR mission.

An Open Letter to Millennials: Adulting with a Firearm

Dear Fellow Millennials,

I’m a young, single, Pro America, Pro God, Pro Gun, female MILLENIAL. My attraction to the outdoors and recreational sports started when I was a child and it led me to working at a shooting range as a range safety officer, instructor, and EMT for the past 7 years. (I’m also a Native Texan so being stereotyped to mouthwatering BBQ and guns is not that unusual either!) I’ve grown up comfortably around guns my entire life, but after working at a public gun range and witnessing horrible handling skills and etiquette, I’ve decided to accept that just because you are a regular shooter, does not mean you are a responsible one.

To me, owning and carrying a firearm boils down to two serious ideologies: responsibility and training.
