Look! It's Mrs Mom!

 Yep. That's me. Mrs Mom, shooting my AR and LOVING it.

 It's been a while- and I do mean a WHILE- since I posted here. GunDiva keeps sending me "gentle reminders" that this blog is here, and that she'd appreciate some support writing. Since there are so many new folks joining us, I figure it might be a good thing to re-introduce myself before I get into today's post.

Where to begin?

I'm a 41 year old Mother, wife, horsewoman, shooter, 2nd Amendment supporting, US Constitution believing, no bullsqueeze tolerating, Kimber and AR toting, bundle of joy. I hold NRA certifications in Pistol and Refuse To Be A Victim as well as Range Safety Officer. I've carried everything from Combat Tupperware (which I adore,) to my current love, a 1911.  We also homeschool our sons, now six and seven years old.

A small part of the reason I've not had much time to post is because Dear Husband and I have been tied up in knots. No, it is NOT what you think. We've literally been tied up in knots. Or rather, tying up loads of knots. All KINDS of knots. Tons of knots. Lots and LOTS of knots.


Because we discovered the joys of creating items with cord and rope.

Things like rifle slings.

 Custom colors with quick disconnect

 Yes, that is my AR. No, it is NOT for sale! Only the pink sling is.

And GunDiva's Favorite Sling.. (NOT)
The Snake belly

(Want to see more? Hit Facebook- there is a whole page dedicated to Southern Winds Solutions. On it you'll find more items, such as equine equipment, more rifle sling styles, various bracelet styles, and color options along with ordering information.If you don't see what you'd like or what you need? Email me- we will work with you to create exactly what you need!)

There you have it. What the mysterious Mrs Mom has been up to and why I've been neglecting my co- writing duties at GunDivas. With any luck, you'll be able to read more from me in the coming days. 

Happy Shooting y'all. Keep it center mass!
~Mrs Mom

Good to hear from you. The knots are gorgeous; that snake belly one in unique (don't think I want my horse to wear it though). If I can EVER make up my mind on colors, I want matching sets for my guys. I like ALL the colors - that's my problem!!!

She's alive! Kinda missed you hanging around, Mrs Mom. :)

Now maybe a review on your 1911 or all of the toys on your AR :) Yep, that's me gently encouraging you to put down the paracord and hit the keyboard. Loves ya *grin*

Out of all the fancy slings we took to Iraq, I just ended up using some 550 cord and a D-ring on my M4.

Love those! Very cool!

Mrs. Mom said...

Thanks guys. For some reason, comments didn't show up like they normally do in my email. So.. as usual, I'm slow getting back here.

Glad you all liked the slings etc!

Mrs Mom - I had the same problem with getting my notifications. I just went in and messed around with the notification settings again. Hopefully, you'll start seeing the comments in your email again (consider this comment a test run).
