Why Every Woman Should Have A Firearm And Know How To Use It

Life isn’t fair. It throws stuff at us that we would never expect. Knowing the volatility of the world today is one thing, but doing something about it is quite another.

Why every woman should have a firearm and know how to use it

According to Duke Law: “Just in the single year 2017, Olympic, World, and U.S. Champion Tori Bowie's 100 meters lifetime best of 10.78 was beaten 15,000 times by men and boys. (Yes, that’s the right number of zeros.)”

I point this out to emphasize that in a confrontation it is highly unlikely an unarmed female will be able to hold her own against a male attacker.

A firearm levels the playing field

Perhaps it’s because even they can see that a firearm gives them a significant upper hand over any unarmed victim.

However, if you are prepared and are able to show that you are capable of meeting force with force, you can decrease the likelihood of being a victim.

An attacker has an inherent advantage in that they are already mentally prepared for what is about to occur. They have laid out the situation in their mind of how this will go. Anything you can do to disrupt that flow will work in your favor.

What you can do

Sign up for the next OXYS Women’s Handgun & Self Defense Program. It is a 90-day self-paced course that includes:

  • 3 In-Person Training Sessions with a Female Instructor (Julie Emmack)

  • Video Examples of Exercises You Should Perform at Home

  • Practical Defense Focus - No Karate Kid Stuff

  • Live Feedback from Instructors

  • Training On How To Continue Improving Your Firearm Skills

Check out the course description for more details or feel free to contact us. Keep in mind that this is a self paced course so you can complete it as time allows within the 90-day period.

We look forward to continuing our work with more women who are willing to take the next step to being safe.

See you at the next class (hopefully)!!
