Recently I wrote an article about why off body purse carry is OK. Continuing on that subject, I reached out to Claudia Chisholm, president and co-owner of Gun Tote’n Mamas, to find out what you should look for when choosing a concealed carry (CCW) handbag. Sponsored by Gun Tote’n Mamas 5 things to look […]
If you’ve ever shot a 3-gun match there’s a good chance that during some point of the competition you experienced blazing sun, a torrential downpour and/or gusting winds. Some may say, “What’s the big deal? Tuff it out!” Well, here’s the problem, when we walk up to the stage we set out our long guns […]

Congratulations @2girls_hunting! What an accomplishment!! 👩🎓👩🎓 #Repost @2girls_hunting with @get_repost ・・・ What a great night!➡➡➡ The Shasta Union Fire Academy is a 2 year program for high school Jr/Sr that set us up for life. Upon graduating from this program we will have all the certificates, training and confidence to step into a career in firefighting right out of high school. Some of us from this class will use these skills towards pursuing a higher degree with the hopes of using our leadership skills, work ethics and education to turn this love of the outdoors in to a life time career. Tonight we graduated the Fire 2 class into to world (proud that a few of them are stepping right into the career of service) and moved up with those selected from our Fire 1 class with excitement for the next year!

Mother’s Day has come and gone, but I believe that for all of the things our mothers do for us, they should be celebrated all month long. A mother’s greatest wish is to see her children happy and healthy, and thankfully, mothers of outdoorswomen don’t have too much to worry about when it comes to […]

In a previous acronym-filled post about individual first aid kits, I introduced the concept of the IFAK. Popular with soldiers, the IFAK is truly a useful tool for us civilians too. Especially on the range or in the field, bringing an IFAK on your adventures undoubtedly ups your preparedness in an emergency situation. Follow these […]
In the beginning of April, I had the opportunity to attend and speak at the USCCA Concealed Carry Expo in Louisville, Kentucky. This action-packed, 3-day expo consisted of numerous seminars, a live-fire shooting range and more than 100 vendors with all types of products for the American gun owner. Gear Up is sponsored by Springfield […]
Moms worry. We worry if our kids are with us or without us. Worries about firearms, regardless of whether we own any, are similar to worries any parent has when raising children in a world full of powerful tools – from cars to bikes to power tools. It is possible to raise children to respect […]

Having a bit of a shoe and boot obsession, I keep a variety to choose from for every activity or occasion. But, there is always that one pair of go-to boots that I can make work for everything: the Danner Women’s Jag Boot. The Jag was originally introduced in the 1980, then retired and brought […]

I used to think all I needed to look for in a range bag were a few compartments, strong zippers and a heavy-weight shoulder strap. That is until I tried Gun Tote’n Mamas (GTM) Organized Rolling Range Bag. Wow, not all range bags are created equal. Sponsored by Gun Tote’n Mamas First, I must admit […]
By the time we reached Colorado for the last piece in our Grand Slam attempt for wild turkeys last year, Jessica Kallam and I felt defeated. We’d suffered through sweat-lodge blinds in Florida for days on end, with her never seeing a bird, and me taking a shot (and missing) at a turkey that was […]

The thought of fighting big fish from a kayak is enough to raise the pulse of any angler. However, you should never pick such a fight without a battle plan, especially when your battleground is not open terrain because any hooked fish will run for cover. Fishing from a boat or land provides fairly solid […]

Krav Maga (pronounced “krahv mahGAH”) is a form of training that cuts out extra nonsensical teaching methods, to make it more of a strictly street violence form of self-defense. It doesn’t include any type of spiritual or meditative elements. It teaches students to respond to real life-or-death situations. Learning how to handle circumstances in which […]
Two years ago when I competed at the World Action Pistol Championship in New Zealand, I figured it might be my final time participating on the world stage.

If you follow some of my wild game concoctions on social media, you know I don’t always post the recipes on the website. Sometimes I just want to share different ways to prepare wild game using the basic staples that most of us have in the refrigerator. And most of the time I don’t even […]

Snoozing on the plane with visions of strutting toms in my head … with a touchdown in San Antonio, Texas. That meant it was time to grab the bags, rent the car, find my fellow hunters and make the 2-hour drive to Chaparossa Ranch, where we would hunt Rio Grande wild turkeys for the next […]
What do a thriller novel and a concealed carry purse have in common? Not much until an author (me) and a business owner (Dawn Hillyer) started brainstorming. It all started with my book tour.

I first caught a glimpse of this gun at the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas last January. I could never get close enough to it to pick it up, because the lines to handle this new Ruger PC Carbine, chambered in 9mm, stretched back so far and I didn’t have time […]
