Although there are many fine books available on the topic, The Cornered Cat is THE must read for the woman who has made the decision to carry a firearm for personal defense or is even considering it. As her co-author in Lessons from Armed America , I could not be more proud of Kathy and her efforts in furthering firearm knowledge, safety and training. Kathy Jackson has penned the definitive work on the subject of women and guns in The Cornered Cat. --Mark Walters Co-author of Lessons from Armed America Concealed Carry Magazine columnist Nationally syndicated host of Armed American Radio
The Cornered Cat may be subtitled A Woman s Guide to Concealed Carry, but I would recommend this to anybody that does, or is even thinking about, carrying a gun. Kathy Jackson touches on every gun-toting topic possible with a lot of class, humor, and wisdom. --Larry Correia, New York Times Bestselling Author

Dynamic physical movements and skills are difficult to convey using only the written word. Although Jackson does an outstanding job, a few line drawings or black & white photos would have enhanced the material.
I strongly recommend this book for anyone, female or male, that is considering the need to take responsibility for their own security.
The author discusses the what, how, when, where, and why in great educational detail but she is not preachy. She will neither put you to sleep, nor scare you to death. She simply 'talks', as she might if we were enjoying a cup of coffee together and I asked her questions. This is NOT a book with an agenda to convert everyone to carrying. Kathy Jackson simply explains why she carries, how it is done, and what to know first as well as later, but does not even slightly disparage people who do not.
I go so far as to say even those opposed to women carrying - or carrying by anyone - should read it. How can you debate an issue if you don't understand the topic and are not knowledgeable of your opposition? It's that important a topic today. We all need to be knowledgeable about whatever it is we support - or oppose - or we are not credible.
She talks about how CCW is very different for women than for men.
--Our bodies are shaped in ways that make carrying more challenging.
-- How do women carry and still look stylish - this is important to most of us.
-- What about curvy women? Women with big breasts?
-- If you carry it, how do you go to the bathroom with it? Our toileting methods are considerably different than our male counterparts.
-- What should you know ahead of time about legal issues if you use a weapon, or even pull it?
-- The emotional issues after a fight?
-- How do you chose the right weapon for your situation?
-- What is the difference between a pistol and revolver?Read more ›
