Happy Independence Day! Today we're covering a variety of home defense subjects. Gila Hayes' book, Personal Defense for Women, is a great resource for any woman thinking about her own defense, from effectively preventing or avoiding situations that would call for the use of force to finding the right firearm and getting the appropriate training.

Al & Dagny

This is my best podcast yet. Today, my wife joins me to talk about her experience as a newbie shooter and about our night out at the range. She tried three of the best .380 semi-automatic pistols out there: 1) the Kahr P380; 2) the Ruger LCP; and 3) the Sig P238.
