Misogynists in the gun community? Say it isn’t so.

I’ve made no secret of my support for women shooters. Besides being excellent students and often better shooters than men, they bring a perspective to the community men often miss. Unfortunately there are some men who are more than uncomfortable with women in the community who do not conform to their “standards.”

Their most recent target appears to be American Gun Chick (AGC). AGC’s as it happened video blog chronicles a young woman growing from new shooter into a firearms instructor. She also has introduced some products┬áthat have caused some unneeded controversy (see her dust cover). Rather than cave to her detractors (seriously if you keep an open mind that product makes sense). AGC made a video calling out all of her haters on both sides and included some of the not so nice posts directed her way.

All I have to say is good for her. This is something we all need to learn from. AGC is not hurting us in any way, she is in fact serving as an ambassador to other new young women who want to get into shooting and look good while doing it. We need to encourage that. We also need to call out the haters, intolerance does not help us at all especially right now.

Here’s AGC’s video. I think she did a great job and seriously, she’s got some talent.

I know better, but it happened to me anyway.

Having changed my EDC and relegated the Glock 19 to a nightstand gun I neglected the rapid access safe I kept it in. the other day I went to get the Glock out to go to the range.

Input code, light turns red, safe beeps six times, safe does NOT open. Grumble, open real gun safe, fish out key, close real gun safe, get a new battery, open rapid access safe, install new battery, test, it works.

Yes, like a dumbass I neglected to change the battery when I changed the rest of the batteries in the house. If I’d really needed it, I would have been screwed. Now I have a battery replacement checklist showing what, where, what battery type and when it was last changed* for every piece of critical equipment in the house.

*Some things I just test the battery. Smoke and CO detectors, weapons lights, and of course the rapid access safe get new batteries every year. My serious social purposes carbines have 50,000 hour sights so they get replaced every other year.

Ugh

Right when I get ready to come back with a lot of stuff I get floored with a respiratory infection.

Going to have to start scheduling posts. More in a little while.
