No More League of Lethal Ladies

I received an email from Jenny Teague of the League of Lethal Ladies letting me know that the league has died. The email included a lot of useful information, so I’m posting it here for you all to see. I only went to one LLL after work shooting event, but I had a lot of […]

Safe Shot Stuff

After I got home from completing my addon at the Washoe County Regional Shooting Facility under the direction of Armed and Safe on Saturday afternoon, Gary from Safe Shot called me. He heard I was in earlier in the day and that I had a complaint about the steep pricing and addon drama. I didn’t […]

Some observations from my CCW addon range trip

Armed and Safe does business right. I am more comfortable shooting the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard revolver than I am my Bersa Thunder 9, even with more difficult to use sights and a crazy trigger-pull. because the revolver fits my hands. I didn’t feel as grungy after shooting a revolver than I do after shooting semi-autos. […]

Armed and Safe Saves the Day

When I took my CCW class, I was in a tough spot in life. My not-so-nice ex-husband and I had recently separated and he had made some threats against me. Additionally, he left me with a lot of debt. I had a need for self-defense and no money to make that happen. I couldn’t even […]

Safe Shot free CCW class with handgun purchase

Just an FYI– Safe Shot Indoor Range here in Reno, Nevada is offering a free CCW class with any handgun purchase. The student still has to pay for range fees and purchase special indoor use ammunition from Safe Shot, but it’s cheaper than the course, range time and ammo all three together. Taking the class […]

Gun Bloggers Rendezvous: CCW Thoughts

At the Gun Bloggers Rendezvous, my mind was on guns the entire time, obviously. I shopped for firearms at Cabela’s on our guided tour. They have a couple of cases of used handguns and I found the cutest little Kel-Tec with laser for $299. The first thing I thought of when I saw it was […]

Gun Bloggers Rendezvous: Shooting Range Video or it Didn’t Happen

First the brass flies, then mag problems. I just liked the shirt. More flying brass. I think this is The Packing Rat shooting, but it’s hard to tell. Super-short clip of Olav and Dan Hall, founder of GunUp. Dan admiring the toys. Can you tell I like to watch brass fly? I think this is […]

Gun Bloggers Rendezvous: The Boys at the Range

On September 10th, 2010, I went to the Washoe County Regional Shooting Facility for some fun range time with the Gun Bloggers Rendezvous participants. I’ve already posted about my experiences there. Here are the pictures of the boys who were with me at the range and their (many) toys: Did you see any female gun […]

Gun Blogger Rendezvous: NRA Breakfast and Range Time

My alarm went off at 7:00 a.m., later than it goes off on a workday Friday, but still entirely too early. Meeting new people and traipsing all over Cabela’s before ditching dinner and conversation for college courses apparently can make one very sleepy! But, as we all repeated to ourselves over the course of the rendezvous, in […]

How I Got Comfortable With Guns

Part II Goal: Getting me shooting. GB didn’t plan on taking me to an empty, indoor range, staffed by a female range officer for my first range experience, but it worked out that way. And I’m glad it did. The range officer was able to give us her undivided attention as I learned how to […]
