Carrying a Gun for a Woman is Very Practical

I can't help but sit here and shake my head at some of the things I hear on the news. I intentionally keep this space free from discussing my views on current events, not because I don't have an opinion but because that's not why SMT was created. I want you to feel inspired and encouraged when you come here. However, when I hear public figures preaching the exact opposite of what the mission of SMT stands for I tend to get a little defensive.

Mixing Prints with a Fur Vest

I probably shouldn't even mentioned it because I'm sure I'm going to jinx it but we are having a nice little warm weather wave right now.  I'm trying to take advantage of it as much as possibly by sticking to layers instead of heavy coats. Some plaid and a fur vest are easy and do the trick for these odd weather days.

Belly Band Holster

I've talked many times about having options when it comes to holsters and that's because each one will fit your needs differently depending on what you decide to wear that day and even what you might be doing. Personally, I've found that when wearing lighter weight pants, for example pants that you would wear to work or pants that have a thinner fabric, that the belly band style holsters work better.

My All Day Ankle Boots

If there is something that I'm not short on it's shoes, specifically ankle boots. I prefer ankle boots over knee high boots. While I do have a couple of pairs of knee high boots, they don't get worn that often. That probably means it's time to send them on to a better home. I find that knee high boots feel more restrictive and don't give my legs room to move or breath. So I always go for ankle boots.

SHOT Show 2018 Favorites

Another year, another SHOT Show in the books. This year was incredibly busy.

In between meetings and recording the new podcast the days on the SHOT Show floor went quick.

The Star of the Show

I truly have a weakness for shoes but, with that being said, I feel that I'm really good at deciding what I add to my collection. In my younger days, any shoe that caught my eye I wanted to have. Granted back then I wasn't able to afford designer shoes so it was a lot easier to add a couple pairs of cute inexpensive shoes to my closet.

Concealed Carry Leggings

I'm pretty certain that most of you that have followed SMT for a while know that I'm pretty obsessed with my jeans. The only times you'll find me in leggings are when I'm working out or lounging. Wait, there is an exception, I do wear leather leggings on occasion for date night. Anyways, I'm talking athletic style leggings - I wear them for what they are made for...working out.
