USA -(Ammoland.com)- In Female and Armed, Lynne Finch offers an information-packed follow-up to her first book, Taking Your First Shot.

Based on questions and requests from real readers, this book addresses more advanced techniques for personal defense as well as range drills to practice and hone gun skills.

For women especially, it’s important to know how to defend yourself. Finch provides the building blocks necessary to successfully navigate dangerous, real-life scenarios. Be it a carjacking, robbery, or home invasion, readers will learn how to protect themselves and their family.

Female and Armed introduces readers to more advanced situational awareness techniques and builds upon their previous shooting experience by teaching them how to responsibly handle and carry a concealed handgun. Finch covers advances in female holsters and discusses the various ways to carry, as well as the importance of having a primary carry method. Additional topics include handgun retention, defensive draw stroke and defensive reloading, shooting from an unstable platform, and shooting from within a car.

Knowing how to handle yourself can make all the difference in a stressful and dangerous situation. This guide also includes defensive tactics when confronted by an armed assailant.

Brimming with full-color photos, this approachable guide is written in Finch’s distinctive conversational and nonthreatening style. It is great for the novice shooter looking to advance and for the more experienced woman to continue to improve her skills.
