Armed and Female
The all-time classic for women is available again!
Quigley has become one of the most sought after firearms instructors (now based in Beverly Hills) because she understands firearms from a woman's point of view. She explains everything without the typical male macho BS that turns off women and many men alike. She helps overcome the initial fears and confusions people have, describing firearms and their safe legitimate use, and why they are important in a normal everyday person's life.
You'll go from a blank slate to a knowledgable person, whether you decide to own firearms and become a good shot or not. You'll pick up skills that will help you avoid crime. When you're done with Armed and Female, you'll be a giant leap ahead in knowing how to protect yourself, feel self confident, be empowered the way you were meant to be.
The whole social context of women with guns is explored, along with futile defense, rape and its consequences, basic gun-control laws and the numbers games, the ethics of using lethal force to protect yourself in a deadly emergency, professional advice, kids and gun safety, the ins and outs of buying the right gun and learning how to use it, basic tactics for gun use and home defense, and a lengthy section on additional resources.
Simply having a gun doesn't mean you're properly armed. Having a gun and the knowledge to use it wisely, that's what a responsible well-armed person has. This book is a great step in that direction. Thank you Paxton for releasing this new editon of your classic book.
And hey, guys -- if you want the woman in your life to understand your interest in firearms, especially if you can't communicate it, this is a perfect gift.

WASHINGTON POST BOOK REVIEW
Paxton Quigley is on a mission: to get more guns in the hands of more women. And she's already well on her way, having trained thousands of women to wield a weapon to protect themselves. In Armed & Female: Taking Control, Quigley describes the types of self-defense that work -- yes, packing heat but also street awareness, good fighting techniques and a safe room in the home. She is unenthusiastic about pepper spray, stun guns, tasers and standard Karate. While Quigley would prefer a world without weapons, she argues there is a need for law-abiding citizens Ð especially women Ð to have access to guns. Here, she describes how she came to realize the importance of arming women against rapists and other attackers.
By Paxton Quigley
I have trained 7,000 women between the ages of 11 and 80 to shoot guns. Many of them were like me: scared or opposed to guns -- and not wanting to deal with the idea of using one. But they had a wake-up call that made them persist.
Mine was a 2 a.m. phone call when I learned a close friend had been raped in her own home. I decided this would not happen to me...
