I personally recommend all of these links and thought they might be helpful.
NRA – With the current anti-gun culture of today, now more than ever it’s important to support an organization that’s sole purpose is to safe guard the Second Amendment for all. NRA is also considered the leader in establishing firearm training standards. Their website is extensive, and there’s a wealth of training opportunities and articles.
Texas State Rifle Association – Is a strong voice in the state of Texas regarding your rights with firearms and their use. Membership provides the advantage of being informed of national and state firearms and Second Amendment issues.
Galveston Rifle & Pistol Club – A nice private shooting range that offers IDPA and USPSA matches each month in Galveston.
The Arms Room – A family owned and operated full service gun store and indoor range in Dickinson. The Arms Room offers classes and has the Loaded Ladies program. They are also the host range for the League City Chapter of A Girl & A Gun.
A Girl & A Gun (AG&AG) – This is the largest women’s only shooting group in the United States. There are several chapters around Houston with one at the Arms Room called the League City Chapter. This all women shooting league is a wealth of sisterhood for women shooters. Follow their newsfeed that continually posts articles on training, gear, conceal carry, competition and many other topics. I am a member and found many good friends through this league. I love A Girl & A Gun!! Come to our local chapter “League City” events that are held each month at The Arms Rooms. “Girls Night Out” is the 2nd Thursday evening at 6:30; “Breakfast & Bullets” is the 3rd Friday at 8am. We get the range to ourselves.
Babes with Bullets – I have attended this camp and highly recommend it. It is an all women training camp. The instructors are world class shooters and instructors.
Gun Goddess – An excellent place to get those necessary and maybe not so necessary shooting items. I have purchased a lot of items through the years here. This woman owned business has an excellent record for customer service too. I have a Discount Code for all my students.
Brilliant Backstraps – When you purchase your pistol check out all the amazing things Tracy can do to add sparkle and customize it to your style. It’s classy bling for firearms! Below is a picture of a lovely Brilliant Backstrap.
Dark Angel Medical – I took this 2 day course and highly recommend it. “Direct Action Response Training” fills a niche between military self-aid/buddy care training and civilian EMS training and is geared towards those with little to no medical training or background. Excellent hands on training that you hopefully will never need but will be glad you did when help is minutes away.
Booby Trap Bras – These are wonderfully comfortable sports bras that enable you to hide a knife or pepper spray very securely. When there are times you can’t keep a pistol on your person I highly recommend this sports bra. I wear them everyday at Crossfit. Read the owner’s story and check out her other self defense items. I have a Discount Code for all my students.
Texas Law Shield – Ignorance of the Law is not a legal excuse, and the legal system can be very hostile toward gun owners. Responsible gun owners get thrown into the legal system every day for exercising their right of self-defense. Don’t let it happen to you! Find out how to protect yourself after you’ve pulled the trigger. Get the facts about gun laws, presented by their firearm program attorneys and law enforcement professionals. Attend one of their Seminars and get protected. I have a discount code for their firearm insurance.
Armed Citizens’ Legal Defense Network, Inc. – Our mission, indeed, our entire focus is the preparation, education and legal defense of Network members who defend themselves and their families, then face unmeritorious prosecution by the criminal justice system. The Network is an organization of gun owners pooling their strength to protect one another when a member comes under scrutiny of the legal system after acting in self defense.
KR Training – Since 1991, KR Training has been offering high quality, affordable firearms and self-defense courses. They are the oldest and largest firearms training school in Central Texas. They have an 88 acre range located in Lee County. I have taken several classes from Karl Rehn and he has a whole slew of classes I want to take with him. Take a look at his website, he has multiple national level instructors that come and offer classes and it’s just right down the road here in Texas.
Cornered Cat – Kathy Jackson has a wealth of information on all things firearms. You can spend days scrolling through her website. She uses items in the news to turn them into teachable moments and is considered one of the best instructors in the country. I highly recommend her book; “The Cornered Cat: A Woman’s Guide to Conceal Carry”
Active Self Protection – These are real life situations that are caught on video that are used to give excellent commentary/feedback on what you could/should do if you find yourself in a similar situation. WARNING – some of these videos can be hard to watch but they give you a warning.
Sheepdog Mamas Facebook page – This is an excellent resource for all those moms (and dads) that want to carry and protect their children. The information in the “files” section and questions that are posted can help parents with everyday life in a family that wants to have a safe firearm carry lifestyle. The admin for this group, Melody Lauer is a well respected instructor that offers training around the country. So go take a look.
Crossfit Tidal Wave – This isn’t firearm related but if you live around Galveston and are looking for a fitness center, THIS IS THE PLACE. Tidal Wave is Galveston’s premiere and largest facility. They offer nutrition and fitness counseling and ALL the coaches are certified. Their unique programming will make you stronger and more fit and it’s customized for everyone. I love all the people there and would like to invite you to go for an introduction.
