In Personal Defense for Women, Hayes gives practical advice on everything from avoiding conflict all the way to responsible use of handguns, revolvers and shotguns – and everything in between, including concealed carry issues for women. Based on decades of experience teaching armed self defense, this is practical advice for women, from a woman who talks the talk and walks the walk." - Corrina Peterson, Editor, Gun Digest
