Training Galore for Handgun Shotgun and Rifle
Training Galore for Handgun Shotgun and Rifle

Since my journey began nine months ago, I have trained with defensive handgun, concealed carry handgun, shotgun, precision rifle, and carbine. Each was a first. And, as with all firsts, came experiences of all kinds. I was reminded of the vulnerability of being the learner. I fought the challenge of starting over - and then starting over again...and again.  And I felt every emotion I can think of in the most unexpected of situations. Here is my journey.

From Fear of Firearms to Armed in Heels: My Story

This is my story. How I, Jacquelyn Kelly, went from terrified of firearms to Armed in Heels...... My husband could tell that I was intrigued. He asked if I wanted to try. I stepped up to the table, caught sight of a pistol, and the tears began. “Put it away,” I said. I went back to the car and waited for everyone else to be done. Four years passed until we spoke of firearms again.

This One is For All the Teachers & Students: Self-Defense in Places with Weapon Restrictions

This blog goes out to all the teachers and students who find themselves on educational campuses that may have weapon restrictions.  Owned by educators, Armed in Heels understands that there may be times when you find yourself in weapon free zones yet still need to have objects for self-defense. Whether you are taking night classes at your college or teaching courses a few times a week, the walk back to the parking lot (which is sometimes as much as a quarter mile away) is a lot scarier alone at night than while the sun is shining and there are people all around.  So what do you do if you frequent places with weapon restrictions?

Ruger SR-22 Pistol - Good for Women?
Ruger SR-22 Pistol - Good for Women?

The new Ruger SR-22 Pistol draws from the designs of the SR9 and SR40. While many reviewers have disliked the pistols size because it is not a 1:1 scale of the SR guns, we find this as a plus. Since most firearms are designed for men, the grip to trigger distance tends to be a little long for the average woman. But this pistol is a slightly scaled down version of the Ruger SR series of firearms, which means the smaller dimensions of the handgun could be perfect for you if you have struggled with bulky firearms in the past.   READ MORE
