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.
