Independence Day

As Well Armed Women we enjoy our own personal form of Independence Day each and every day! 
By taking responsibility of our personal self defense, we gain a sense of independence which is both physical as well as emotional. 
Physically, we are equipped and trained to carry and use a firearm to use effectively if heaven forbid our lives are at risk. Emotionally we have a confidence and sense that if we have to, we will know what to do and will have the strength and courage to defend ourselves effectively.
I will never forget the overwhelming sense of personal confidence I felt when I began carrying a firearm. Internally I felt strong and capable. It really changed the way I "moved" through my life. My self confidence rose and for probably the first time in my life, I knew what it was to be truly empowered and independent!
I recently posed the following question to the women on Facebook: As a Well Armed Woman, one word that describes how that makes me feel is ____________. The words the hundreds of women used to describe this feeling was really inspirational. Let me share a few of them with you. 
Bad A**
As we all celebrate our nations independence, I want to celebrate YOURS!  
I'm proud to be your Sister In Arms and I salute your commitment to safe and responsible gun ownership. 
Happy Independence Day!
