The Self Defense category started this site. I began this journey to advertise my handgun permit classes. Over time the site and my mission grew
Now I see guns and self defense to be a part of disaster preparedness and not the main aspect of it.
I still teach firearms and still believe having the will and skill to defend yourself is essential, but it is only a piece of the total package. That being said, this category is still one of the largest on this site and it is second only to the DIY and Equipment sections.
