Is there any question that self-defense training is necessary for women today? Unfortunately the problem is that there are so many to choose from. A lot of women who aren’t mentally prepared to take on the responsibilities of a firearm have dived into a multitude of physical self-defense techniques—boxing, martial arts, etc. I even had one woman tell me that she has taken up fencing for her self-defense training. (Yes, I did indeed roll my eyes on that one. “’Scuse me Mr. Bad Guy while I go to my trunk or my closet and pull out my dull tipped sword.”)
I bring this instance up because the majority of the self-defense training out there is complicated. It requires too many steps to be remembered and executed at a time when you’re least likely to have all of your wits and fine motor skills about you. Only extensive amounts of practice will accomplish the successful execution of such. Some self-defense methods require an amount of strength that does not readily accompany a woman’s makeup. Some require too much proficiency. And worse yet, some are incomplete. It’s at least a little inconvenient if a woman is attacked between her white and her green belt, don’t you think?
This is exactly why I’m such a big proponent of the use of firearms defense for women. With a single day-long class and some practice on your own, you can have all of the necessary safety skills as well as self-defense skills you need to properly protect yourself. It doesn’t matter if you get winded climbing the stairs in your own home. You can still effectively use a firearm to defend yourself with. It doesn’t matter if you’re disabled, deaf, or short like me. Everyone has the right to defend themselves and it doesn’t have to cost you money for years and years from now while you prepare yourself for that fateful moment.
Fortunately for you, firearm defense is effective for women regardless of who your opponent is. You can sufficiently stop a scrawny little coward or a sub-human towering lunatic. A couple of well placed shots is all you need—no sweating required.
Give firearm defense some thought, ladies. Firearm defense is clearly the most economic, effective, and timely manner for self-defense available.
