I am 74, and I fell and injured my thumb on my right hand. I also have OA. With that in mind, what would you recommend? Even with my current revolver, I am a crack shot, but I can’t shoot long at the range or I end up in bad pain.

And maybe giving a try with a group like “The Well Armed Woman” wouldn’t be the worst idea.

I’ve owned my own businesses. And I’m an NRA member. This is a great article, but I’d like to add one point: As an owner/manager/boss I can’t fix a problem I don’t know about. May I suggest that a phone call to upper management (chain store) or owner (local gun store) to discuss the issues would go a long way to educating ‘da bosses that might not even know what idiots they have working for them. Just walking out will hit their bottom line, but fails to help the next woman walking in the door.
Just look how the new car business has changed in the last 30 years or so. You CAN make a difference either way (walking or talking), but make it count!

Comment on How Important is Stun Gun Voltage, Anyway? by Wendy Megyese http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/2015/07/how-important-is-stun-gun-voltage-anyway/#comment-53564 Sun, 12 Jul 2015 13:20:35 +0000 http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/?p=22580#comment-53564 It is interesting to note that “Paul” made a comment about stun guns, but has failed to follow up with an answer as to why these should not be recommended to women for their self defense. Since he has not, let me take the opportunity to do so on his behalf.
Top 5 reasons why stun guns should not be used for self defense:
5. Stun guns don’t work.
4. A stun gun can be taken away and used against a woman.
3. Women should take martial arts if they want to defend themselves
2. The only real self defense weapon is a gun.
1. And finally… The world according to Paul is Holy. You don’t need any kind of protection.
As a law enforcement officer, the owner of Best Line Defense, and the gal in the video, ( but now with much longer hair), I’ll address each of “Paul’s” possible arguments:
1. Unfortunately, the world is far from holy. There is a very real evil that exists. Every 107 seconds an American woman is sexually assaulted. This does not take into account every other type of attack, such as muggings or domestic violence. Without a means to defend yourself, you may easily become part of that statistic.
2. While firearms play a vital role in self defense, not everyone can or should rely on a gun for protection. The reasons are many and varied, from the fact that you cannot obtain a concealed carry license until the age of 21 to safety considerations when you have small children around. Stun guns can also be carried in places where firearms cannot. For example, you cannot legally leave a store with a gun in your hand ready to use just in case you encounter a predator. You can, however, do that with a stun gun.
3. I always recommend taking some type of physical self defense training if and when at all possible. However, this is not an attainable goal for everyone. Consider the 70 year old, frail woman who lives in a rural area 50 miles from where any training of this kind might be offered. I currently live 45 miles away from any type of urban area, so that description fits a large number of women that I routinely encounter.
4. Any type of weapon, lethal or non-lethal can be taken away and used against the victim. This includes firearms, which ultimately can lead to a much greater consequences. There are several types of stun guns, including the Runt that have safety measures to help prevent an attacker from using the stun gun on the victim.
5. Stun guns do indeed work. While nothing is 100% guaranteed to prevent falling prey to an attacker, stun guns have a 92% efficacy rate. This is the reason law enforcement officers, including myself, rely on them as one of the tools used to subdue criminals. The use of Tasers and stun guns is now so common, that even the sound of a stun gun being ‘popped’ is a deterrent. Regardless of the language you speak, or what country you may be from, most adults recognize the sound of electricity sparking and have a healthy and reasonable fear of it. In my training, I have had the dubious privilege of being Tased. Trust me, it works.

In the event that ‘Paul’ cares to counter my arguments, especially on the efficacy of stun guns, I would happily try to arrange a meeting where he would submit to having a stun gun used on him. If indeed he still has a valid reason for saying these should not be carried by women for self defense, then I will gladly withdraw my comments.

In the meantime, I will continue to heartily recommend stun guns as a great non lethal self defense weapon.

I’ve been worked LE at local and federal levels and even the private sector and we dispatch based on priority. When I’ve worked as a dispatcher I’ve even used my authority to redirect responding first responders as new information came into the dispatch center. We always dispatch on the information not when it came in.
That’s why you hear larger agencies assign “codes” (i.e. Code three) to a call. So responders know not only how to respond but where it falls in their priority tree.
Listen to a big city from an online scanner and you’ll get the idea. A large city like Cleveland has officers start their tours with lower priority calls that have been holding until things calm down.

Comment on How to Get Your Kids Off the Internet and Out to the Range in Responsible Shooting Programs by Lynda Green http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/2015/06/how-to-get-your-kids-off-the-internet-and-out-to-the-range/#comment-53310 Thu, 09 Jul 2015 15:04:07 +0000 http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/?p=22487#comment-53310 I don’t see mentioned here the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Their Rimfire Sporter matches provide opportunities for both older children and adults to compete and have fun. Many 4-H groups have CMP-affiliated programs, as do some clubs.

They also provide air gun competitions in which kids excel and even have scholarship opportunities.

People do lie… that’s why every state has a law called (more or less) misuse of 911! I have 17 years in LE and a sister that runs Rock County Wisconsin’s 911 center. I don’t know where you are from but if that’s how your 911 center operates they will be sued! This isn’t McDonalds first come first served this is prioritizing emergency response so those most in need get service first. Anyone who knowingly lies in my county… Goes directly to jail… All the time.

Not only where the first aid kit is located or how old it is but members of your shooting team/squad are full trained on how to use the first aid kit, shock and blood loss can kill within minutes

If there were dispatched off of info given and then prioritized them people would lie to make sure the got the first unit out the door.

Always tell the dispatcher as much info as you have. If you are in a rural area that would that creates extended response times due to location, it is ok to request that a helicopter be dispatched. It is a good idea to have a pre determined landing zone picked out and have the GPS cordinates for it on a sign.
