Don't Forget to Have Fun!!!

In the wake of all this tragedy and politics, etc., it is important to remind yourself to have FUN! Yesterday I had one of the best days at the range I've ever had. It's so easy to get so wrapped up in the media and everything going on around you, that you forget to focus on yourself! Aside from being a means of defense, shooting is FUN! Need I reference you to my earlier post "Plinkin and Thinkin"?

You know it's been a good day at the range when:

But, it truly doesn't matter if you shoot well, or you shoot... not so well.. who cares!!

It was a freezing day here in New England and we layered up (about 4 layers of fleece and long undies) and had ourselves a blast outside in the wonderful fresh air! We took a day away from the kids, away from TV and everything else to just "be". That's what my Nana used to call it. She would love to go to the Cape, no matter the season, and she would stand on the beach and face the water with her arms stretched up in the air (even when she was in her 80's!) and she would just "be". I always wished I could have taken my Nana shooting, she would have LOVED it!

We shot our AR-15 and some of our pistols (Glock 30, 19, 21 and Beretta Nano) but the highlight of our day was then a fellow shooter let us take a few shots with his Uzi! Sound intimidating right?? Not AT ALL!! One of the easiest and softest guns I've ever shot, but no less AWESOME!!!

It was a great day!


Remember Femmes get out there and have fun!!!!

Reason #453 To NOT Let Them Take Away Your 2nd Amendment Rights!!!

Georgia mom home alone with kids shoots ex-con intruder

A Georgia mother shot an ex-convict six times to protect her and her children after he apparently forced his way into the family’s home.
The mom heard knocks on her front door Friday and assumed it was just a solicitor, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

She told her 9-year-old twins not to answer the door and, when the visitor began repeatedly ringing the doorbell, she called her husband at his job and he told her to gather the children and hide.

According to the Journal-Constitution, the father then dialed 911 and his wife, who works from a home office, hid with the children in a crawlspace.

By that time, according to the paper, the intruder had used a crowbar to forcibly enter the home, and made his way to the home office.

“He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver,” Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The woman fired six bullets, five of which hit Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area, Chapman said. But Slater, who has arrests dating to 2008 and was released from jail in August, was still conscious.

“The guy’s face down, crying,” the sheriff said. The woman told him to stay down or she’d shoot again.

While down, the woman and her children ran to a neighbor’s house, and the injured intruder made it out of the home and into his car, the paper reported.

Authorities found Slater a short time later bleeding profusely in a neighbor’s driveway.

“I’m dying. Help me,” he told them, according to Chapman.

Slater was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center and is expected to survive, the sheriff said.

Something to note about this article:

By the time to police got there, if she hadn't been armed, terrible things would have already been happening to her or her children.

Fellow Femmes, we are a targeted group... we need to defend ourselves. Though the Police are there to serve and protect, they cannot be everywhere at once and get there as soon as you make the call.

If you call 9-1-1 from a cell phone it goes to a State Police barracks who then transfers you to your local police.. all this takes time - precious time. Don't get me wrong - in the event of a possible break in, by all means CALL THE POLICE, but don't make yourself a sitting duck just hoping the police will get there before the would be intruder makes there way in.

A big change is on the horizon for gun rights in this country. The voice of women in this country in favor of maintaining our right to bear arms should ring out across the country.

It is important to remember that people who intend to do bad things, be it on a small or large scale, will ALWAYS do bad things. Making guns illegal will NOT stop them. It will only take them out of the hands of the law abiding citizens who intend to use them for lawful and defensive purposes.

There are many things in this country that are illegal and yet those who want them, still manage to obtain them.

Femmes you MUST educate yourselves about guns. Ask questions, get familiar, understand the differences between a true "assault weapon" (which is used by our armed forces) and what's being labeled an "assault weapon" by those in favor of banning them. There are HUGE differences!!
