Defend Yourself

As women, we are often the prey of those unsavory characters who prowl this fine world of ours. Therefore, it would be in our best interest to defend ourselves to the best of our ability. Self defense courses are fantastic, carrying pepper spray is also a good start. But, why stop there?? Why not turn the tables on those who intend to do us harm?

Not to be a Paranoid Polly, but why just hope for the best? Why not put yourself in the BEST possible situation to you keep you safe and in the lives of those who love and depend on you?

The thought of firing a gun may scare you, and the thought of CARRYING a gun may terrify you but do either of those things sound less scary that not being able to defend yourself in the event that, god forbid, something DID happen?

I don't want to go all preachy here, I just feel it's an important point to make. We must, of course, keep perspective. Femme et Pistolet is all about baby steps, easing into this whole world, educating yourself and becoming comfortable with what is currently a very foreign realm.

I just hope that I have given you some food for thought.

I will leave you with a bit of reading about a smart and courageous woman who chose the path to defend herself as best she could and because of that, probably saved herself from a very gruesome outcome:

I apologize for the dark nature of this post, but sometimes I will take a bit of a "realist" stance on this blog. For the most part, I'll try to keep it light!!
