Carrie and Barb traveled to Cambridge, Maryland, last week to tour the LWRCI plant where The Well Armed Woman AR, the DI-ADEM, is being made. They also spent time on the range with the gun. Find out more about what they thought about the trip and experience, and why a new AR might be in your future.
Give a listen to our brother from another mother, Kenn Blanchard, about the LWRCI experience on his show, “Black Man with a Gun.”
Barb mentions the fact that permitless concealed carry is 1 year old in Idaho, and no ill effects have been noticed. In fact, there’s been an uptick in attendance at concealed carry classes. Carrie gives a shout out to competition shooter and DC Project coordinator Dianna Muller, for her Op-ed piece in Tulsa World, “Women’s March against the NRA? Count me out!”
Julie Golob stresses the importance of checking over your carry ammo, and choosing it wisely, too. Sponsored by NRA Women.Cool products Carrie found the Defender 24/7, and Barb thinks this would be a great device for women on campus everywhere, as long as it’s legal. This gizmo is billed as “all-in-one camera, oscillating flash, siren and pepper spray that connects to a 24/7 alert service through a smartphone app, activates with the push of a button and is small enough to hang from a keychain.” Pre-order only at this date. ($179) Barb mentioned that if you’re going to have an AR, you need a sling for it and recommends a 1-point sling from Midway to get started. ($14.99)
Carrie found a women’s handgun permit course in Tennessee on July 29. Barb discovered that renowned trainer Sharon Gregg is offering a series of Women on Target “First Steps” courses this summer and into the fall at the Mechanicsburg Sportsmen’s Protective Association in Enola, Pennsylvania, including a rifle course.
