Situational Awareness in Crowded Places

I don’t know about anyone else, but I read good books and watch entertaining movies to lose myself in a storyline. To shed my worries and cares, to let my feet leave the planet of my reality and head off to explore the alternate realities presented on paper and in film is liberating. I don’t […]

My purse, the 2nd most important thing I carry (besides my gun)

I have always been cautious about the location of my purse. I learned that lesson early on. I left my first purse in a bathroom stall at a restaurant as a small child and it had $40 in birthday money cleverly tucked inside a flap on my glasses case inside of it. I didn’t have […]

Discreet Carry Ingenuity: Pepper Spray in Cleavage Holster
