I have been in Appleseed since September of 2008 and I will never forget my journey, which is why I thought writing articles for magazines could be beneficial in getting other women to start shooting and of course promote Appleseed! I started with the online Guns and Lace magazine and it was accepted! Please check it out, my article is on page 12.

Nice write-up!  But you forgot to mention you were planning to shoot boss a Ladyseed in MN in the coming future. ^-^

that's some photo on the cover of the site....

tk
The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed -- where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees*. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

Haven't quite figured out the details yet, but...  There's certainly some desire.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:12
