This is why you need a rifle.

A man saves 25 people from certain death in a TALIBAN attack with his rifle. John Turner is a truck driver in Afganistan and has no prior military experience. I good man, with a good rifle and the know how to use it, can be very formidable in a defensive position. Link;

    An AR15 5.56mm is a great rifle for a petite woman. I would try and rent one from your local range or ask a friend to let you fire it it first. Always nice to try something out first. Take your time and test different caliburs out first. This will help you get it “right” the first time. An AR15 5.56mm is a very accurate combination and the recoil is close to nothing.

    I am so glad you made this video because my stupid brother in law told me to get a shotgun instead of a rifle.
    Could you recommend a good rifle for a very petite woman? Thank you!

    I am SO glad you made this video because my stupid brother in law told me I should get a shotgun instead of the rifle i was looking at. Thank you! Keep up the good work.

  8. Yankee?? Hmmm, I see your hands going in the reflection like we do down south. 🙂

    I will be putting out a vid soon on this subject. It will be tying the my rifle vids, the choice for a 308, knowing your neighbors, making friends and planning for the SHTF and loss of the rule of law all together. If things do go bad for us here or whereever you are, palnning ahead and providing direction and leader ship will make a difference. I hope it will anyway. I am planning on it.

    No, but when the time comes to fight at home I don’t see it ending well in my opinion. The sad part is when I look around my neighbourhood I just don’t see people banding together all I can invision is everyone closing their blinds and hoping whatever is going on doesn’t involve them. kind of like what is happening in a larger scale across our countries, however, I’m not sure of a better alternative yet, new to this mindset I have to get my thoughts in order still Thanks for the good info.

    Freedom always comes from the barrel of a gun

    “With no guns, it’s a more level playing field.”

    Tell that to a 90lb woman trying to defend herself against a 250lb rapist who has had nothing else to do in prison for the last year than exercise. Let her know that it is a “more level playing field” if she is trying to defend herself with her bare hands rather than if she is armed with a firearm.
    Most defensive tools amplify strength in some way. A gun is the only reliable tool in which the user’s size doesn’t matter.

    Nice video.
    I kept thinking somebody was going to pull the trigger and put a hole in the head of that picture of a man with a gun…. that little red dot moving around his nose reminded me of a range trip with laser sighted weapons
