Magazine seems a bit Kimber focused!

Was bored, so I picked up a mag called "Personal Defense World."

Looking carefully at the pix in the Table of Contents (did I mentioned I was BORED?!!?): there's the Amethyst "goddess of war." {snicker}

Then an article on "First Shots The best guns for women to try when they're learning to shoot" -- read read read, blah blah blah... Glocks Glocks Glocks... turn the page:
pic of THREE K6s, plus one in a holster -- next page is text extolling the brilliant wonderful, good for women too, K6. Next page: "Trusty 1911s" -- and here's a nice (of short) discussion (with a big pic) of the Rose Gold Ultra II.

Next:Good article with pix on ARs. Then "Sound Advice for women on carrying a blade for self-defense."

Later, a whole article on the Amethyst with lotsa pix!
Kimber is known for its ability to take POWER, STRENGTH, AND RELIABILITY and embody those with luxurious beauty
.

(Now, I gotta mention, purple is my actual fav color, so I thought fondly of the Amethyst -- but the pix online always show varying 'levels' of purple. Got to see and put fingerprints on one at the NRA show here a couple years ago... Alas, the "purple" is WAY too pinky and sweet for me... I want ROMAN ROYAL purple...

Article on building an AR Pistol (I have a thread about that somewhere here...). Then one on dealing with stalkers (guess this issue is directed a lot toward women?) Then: 'How to overcome ten shooting challenges' (like weak grip and flinching).

And an article by Mas Ayoob on surviving the second fight.

Wee blurbs and a pic in: "Hot New Handguns" -- including Kimber Aegis Elite Pro (01) and K6s3, K6 CDP, Micro 9 CDP (CN). "Cutting Edge Rifles" including Advanced Tactical SOC II (SG).

I'm glad you didn't think the Sapphire Blue was to manly.


I've not looked at that magazine before, may have to check it out.

Nah, the Sapphire is the goddess of handguns! Heck with the Amethyst! Weak-looking girly gun!

To offset the purple girly look if I bought a Amethyst it would be in the manly .45acp caliber!

If you shoot someone with it, would the coroner put down the cause of death as "Fabulousness"?

I agree. However, when the police show up and yell at you to "drop it" for their safety, think of the poor gun hitting the pavement.

Best use the ugly dirty gun on the bad guy and give it up for the evidence room, in case you never see it again.

Then you can still go home and snuggle the pretty ones.

Hmmm, yeah, but I'm a fat old lady... I can just groan, bend over, and set it down. The cops will feel sympathy, not fear, about me! Besides, I always figure I'd been sitting on the ground with my back to a WALL, crying my eyes out, and holding off the crowd till the cops show up... THEN I can set the gun down, cause I'll already be near the ground.... (But, yes, the bad guy will be quite DEAD... Post-action reaction, not inability to act when needed... )

Just bought a(nother) book that looks ...interesting? Violence of Mind: Training and Preparation by Varg someone... Reviews were strong, looks good. I've read most of Rory Miller and Mac "Animal" .... uh ... someone... I'm strongly motivated to know 'violence precursors' -- and be able to articulate them to lawyers and courts...

Later: Mac McYoung. Rory and Mac have both written some excellent books!
