The information you need:

At Women Carry I only share recommendations that I would give to my best friends and family members. That means you can be sure that the people and products I tell you about are first rate, and have been personally vetted by me or our advisors. (That also means that no one is getting on this list by throwing money my direction.)


Latest news, articles, and thoughts plus product and class reviews. I promise to tell you what I think and give you honest feedback. I don’t take sponsors or get paid to say anything on this site.

About Me


Women Carry was born out of Tammy’s passionate desire to help women gain the knowledge and confidence needed to make concealed carry a normal part of their every day routine. As a firearm instructor she saw the numbers of of women purchasing and training with firearms increasing, and yet, so many of these students struggle to find a way to carry their guns with them daily. This reality is devestating when you consider that the majority of these women purchase guns for personal protection.

Tammy understands these challenges first hand. Her goal with Women Carry is to encourage the conversations, spread the wealth of knowledge available, and help women of various ages and situations find a way that works for them to begin to make Concealed Carry an integrated part of their daily life.
