If you're a man and a gun owner and if you've always wanted your wife to learn how to shoot a gun--but she's been afraid--give her this book. It should change her mind. Paxton Quigley's arguments for women knowing how to shoot a gun are very pragmatic and she cites
numerous stories of women who've used a gun in self defense and were victors, not victims. A lot of good insights here.

This book give a completely comprehensive view of everything you would need to know about being a female gun owner.
Paxton Quigley did and outstanding job researching and explaining what kind of gun you should get how to be safe, what the self defense laws are and so much more. I've read a few other book and this one was the best.

Paxton Quigley has written a book that every law-abiding citizen should read and thoroughly understand. This book is about a basic human right: the right of survival and that right as defended by the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. This book provides thorough information on self-protection.

I'm an experienced gun owner, shooter and active concealed carrier, well acquainted with what everything that was presented in this book. While I didn't learn much new, my wife (also a regular shooter and carrier) also read it and was impressed. We gave it to our new daughter-in-law, who had not been convinced the dangers on the street were real enough to be concerned. We also hope it helped her understand our son, who does own guns and loves to shoot. I'd highly recommend this book to almost any woman who isn't already a long-time weapon student and concealed carry permit holder.

This is a very interesting book with alarming statistics and thought provoking examples of real life stories. I would recommend this book to anyone to read, regardless of their feelings about the 2nd amendment, and the right to carry.
Would highly recommend to all readers.

I'm researching concealed carry for myself and didn't realize how little I knew about handguns. This book has inspired me to pursue my education and eventually choose the right gun. I'm signed up for a women's defense class at a local shooting range and this gun has given me an idea on what to look for in the gun I'll buy.

Paxton Quigley's Armed & Female answers every FAQ I ever had or heard from others about choosing, buying and using a gun for self-defense; and thanks to her Resource Appendix, I know where to get hands on training.

This book should be read by every woman who wants to "level" the playing field now that all 50 states have concealed carry laws...although Illinois is still delaying implementation of its concealed carry law that it was ordered to enact by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
