The first time I was shot with Simunitions was at a rather close range. I will admit, I stayed strong until I left, and once in the car I broke down crying. Not only because it hurt, but the stress of the entire situation. Yes, everyone should go through a FOF course at least once. Thank you for the comment.

Comment on Force-On-Force Training: On Set with Gun Talk’s ‘First Person Defender’ by Kandy Harrell http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/2016/08/training-gun-talks-first-person-defender/#comment-62921 Tue, 30 Aug 2016 21:32:42 +0000 http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/?p=27290#comment-62921 I can tell you those simunition rounds do hurt! I’m a regular role player with the FoF classes at our range. The classes are both fun and eye-opening! I highly recommend everyone take a class like this. It really shows you how much more training on defensive firearms and a LOT more mental preparation you need in order to prepare yourself for a real-life encounter.

Great article to sensibilze people to skin damages and illnesses due to sun rays. In France the amount of UV are probably less important than in USA and particulary in the south but you also must consider UVA protection when you buy sunscreen. Not only UVB are dangerous. A very recent study from french non lucrative consumers association (published yesterday) has proven that many SPF 50+ sunscreen for kids did not protect at all against UVA.
Take care and enjoy outdoor’s activities.
Regards,
Franck (Bordeaux-France)

I was also blessed to be able to learn from my husband and other male shooters. Most women want a safe and non-threatening environment in which to learn.

I appreciate your opinion, however, the most effective person with a gun is the one who is unseen by the “Bad Man.” When you carry openly, print through your clothing, or allow other people to know you are armed, you may very well become target #1 to someone who believes you will stop their criminal act. We live and die by the decisions we make, and I prefer to remain my being armed to be unknown. My choice to carry and remain unknown will most likely serve its purpose by lending surprise to my defensive ability. Speed, surprise and violence of action have won many battles.

The common misconception for people new to carrying a weapon is their assumption that EVERYONE will notice they are carrying. When, in reality – they could actually be very obviously be open carrying and only a few people would take notice. The general populous just doesn’t possess the situational awareness to dress down each and every person that walks past them to see if a weapon is printing through a shirt.

There is nothing wrong with printing. In that picture you supplied – another individual would be hard pressed to even notice that ‘bulge’, or be able to confirm it was a firearm, or a cell phone, or a belt carried insulin kit. I realize not too many women carry a cell phone in a case on their belt…but, something pushing up against a cover garment doesn’t immediately scream “gun” to the ordinary citizen.

The reality is in the picture you provided…no one would notice that unless they were specifically looking for it. And, in such case, that individual is likely a concealed carry supporter, or law enforcement, and employ a degree of situational awareness that 99% of the population does not.

Comment on An AR15 Rifle in .22 Caliber for Home Defense by Stacy Bright http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/2016/06/ar15-rifle-22-caliber-home-defense/#comment-62850 Mon, 27 Jun 2016 01:11:42 +0000 http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/?p=26116#comment-62850 I agree that each person should decide what works best for their home defense plan. The reason I have chosen the tactical .22 is that’s what I feel works best for me, and my family too. Choosing (and writing about) a .22 has nothing to do with misogyny…quite the opposite in fact. I have 2 teenage daughters that can easily handle a .223. From experience on the shooting range, they can fire 10 rounds in less than 3 sec, center mass, with the .22. Due to the higher recoil, they’re not as fast, nor as accurate with the .223 when they’re trying to fire quickly. As I mentioned in the article, there’s plenty of opinions…everyone has one…but the main thing is that you ARE prepared in one way or another. Good for you for setting your wife up for success with a 20 gauge!

It’s a well put together rifle that will meet the needs of home defense. Happily, .22 ammunition is becoming more readily available

The only reason I would use a .22 upper is for cheaper target practice or plinking. Also, the concept that women can’t handle recoil is misogynistic at best. If a woman HAS exhibited an issue with recoil, as MY better half has, better to set up a 20 gauge shotgun with home defense roiunds as I have so she has stopping power but won’t get knocked on her ass by a 12 gauge.

Comment on 5 Pistol Drills for the Indoor Range by Randi Rogers http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/2016/06/5-pistol-drills-indoor-range/#comment-62842 Mon, 20 Jun 2016 13:12:19 +0000 http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/?p=25983#comment-62842 TJ, Glad that you found some helpful ideas. Being cross dominate (left handed, right eye) can be overcome very easily with just a handgun. I would recommend a combination of turning your head and adjusting your arm a little bit to get the sights in front of your left eye. Finding the sights is a little trickier. There are lots of different things you can do to help you see your sights better. 1- You can use sight paint to paint the front sight a brighter color like orange. Paint can be purchased from most firearms accessories retailers. 2- You can change out the sights to an aftermarket kind. There are several brands of sights that allow you to install a wider rear notch and a slimmer front giving you more light between which can make it easier to see. 3- There are aftermarket sights with additional add on like fibers, or night sights that glow in low light. Truglo makes and excellent kind that is large and easy to see. 4- It never hurts to see the eye doctor and check to see if your prescription is up to date. Hope these help! Thanks- Randi

I found the tips about various shooting drills at the range quite helpful. Would you help me one more time? I would like to practice using the one hand method, but I am right-handed with a left dominant eye. What to do? And the older I get, I am finding the standard sights on many side-arms very narrow for my vision – I am nearsighted, where the front gun post seems to blend with the rear posts. Suggestions would be welcomed.
Thank you,
TJ
