A Woman’s Best Self Defense Tool: By Former Navy SEAL Brandon Webb

Inspired by all the creepy shits out there that try to intimidate people of all shapes and sizes, including a lot of my female friends..

So I get asked self defense tips all the time by woman friends of mine.  While a firearm has its place in the home, it has serious lifestyle restrictions, especially if you live in California or travel frequently.  Plus, most indoor ranges are operated by scum bags with egos that would rival a Navy SEAL.  That, and most of the clerks look like those two creeps manning the pawn shop counter (the gimp scene) in the movie Pulp Fiction.

Training is important, too!  If you want to use a firearm, you better train with it. Most women I know are afraid to go to most of these ranges unaccompanied to practice shooting.  It’s just plain uninviting to women, and most beginners; Period.  I personally don’t like going myself for a lot of the same reasons.  I’d open my own “women/new shooter” friendly fucking range if it weren’t so damn expensive (ventilation units are in excess of $250k…ventilation people!!).  That, and I’d make it a cool place. I’ve talked this over with my friend and famous Fashion Stylist Sally Lyndley over many a glass of wine in Manhattan.

On the training note:  You don’t just train to use a gun on the range, then check the box with an “I’m good-to-go in a pinch”.  Just operating a firearm safely doesn’t cut it.  You need to train like you fight.  That means scenario based high stress training, and if you don’t know what that is, then you’re not prepared to defend yourself with a firearm.

Ladies, you need to train until you are taking down creeps as effortlessly as you shop for clothing.  How do you do this? You end up spending a whole lot of money.  Because good, practical instruction on self defense with a hand gun takes good instruction. Not too many out there can give it, and there are plenty of posers taking advantage. So be warned! You wouldn’t believe the Spec Ops Douche Bags (SODBs we call them) roaming the bar and indoor ranges these days.  My friend and former SEAL Teammate Don Shipley busts these phonies daily; His video is below.
So be careful who the hell you trust when training, because most are douche bags.  Send them to me or Don or SOFREP.com for verification.

The serious problem that exists for women today:  According to RAINN, 1 in 6 women stand the chance of being sexually assaulted and around 15% of college girls stand the chance of some DB sexually assaulting them!

Douche bags and creeps are running a muck out there ladies, and you can’t always go running to your Navy SEAL boyfriend to bail you out.
