    Hello everyone,

    Just joined the site yesterday & realized I was remiss not to introduce myself before posting. (Oops ... sorry! :eek: )

    I'm a happily-married mother of five sons, three of them teenagers still living at home.

    I work from home as the managing editor of Concealed Carry Magazine, published by the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA). Been doing that almost two years now; the magazine is just starting its 7th year.

    I'm also one of the instructors at the Firearms Academy of Seattle, which is located not in Seattle but just outside Chehalis/Centralia, in beautiful Lewis County.

    Although I did a little plinking and hunting as a youngster, I didn't really start shooting or get interested in self-defense until around ten years ago. But as soon as I did, I started taking classes and really studying everything I could learn. My training resume has well over 500 hours on it of classes I've taken, not to mention all the ones I've helped with. It's a joy and a pleasure to help others learn, and a privilege to watch and learn from how others teach.

    My personal website is at www.CorneredCat.com -- it's a resource site for women considering or who are new to firearms ownership and concealed carry -- and I've also co-authored a book, Lessons from Armed America with Mark Walters. That was just published in October, so the whole thing is still new and amazing to me.

    pax,

    Kathy Jackson

    welcome pax! awesome site you have, a lot of the info on there goes beyond the barriers of gender. I'm somewhat new to CC world and I found a lot of good info on there.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. :)

    Steven, my husband and I very nearly bought a house in Prineville, lo these many years ago (hmmm, musta been around 18 years back). Beautiful old town. I suspect it's grown some since then...
