Memories of Roberta

No, the above photo isn’t she.  She was, uh, more endowed. (and a redhead). And while she was known to carry a concealed weapon, it usually wasn’t a .38 snub.  It was one of those truncated Kimber .45s, in a belly-band, right below the, uh, area pictured above.  Presentation was ‘between’.

This takes me back to the book Stopping Power, wherein  Marshall and Sanow present numerous examples of police and civilians utilizing firearms against assailants.  In teaching my students, I used to refer to the book as ‘bedtime stories’.  One story had a female sheriff’s deputy rushing to exit the women’s room to back up her partner, going into full-on-Weaver, and engaging the threat.  Without having properly fastened her pants.  The back up cops told her doing so was a helluva diversion!

Obviously, the woman above (or Roberta) would have accomplished the same thing.

Hey, I’m all about women carrying, and carrying something effective and discrete.  The presentation may lose some discretion, but, so be it!

And I saw this photo on a couple other blogs and thought, “Hey, Roberta!  And Rule Five.”

FTC – neither Flashbang, Kimber, Marshall nor Sanow gave me anything.  Roberta did for a few years, then we parted company.  No money changed hands.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
