Born To Protect Join USCCA Cart

Kat Ainsworth

Outdoor writer Kat Ainsworth has been carrying concealed for 15 years and hunting for more than 20 years. She writes for a variety of industry publications, covering hunting, ballistics and self-defense, though she has a background in K9 Search-and-Rescue and emergency veterinary medicine. Kat calls Marshfield, Wisconsin, home, but she enjoys traveling as part of her gun-related lifestyle. She has yet to find a firearm she didn’t want to fire.

Kat's Everyday Carry...
My carry gun tends to rotate. My current favorites, though, are the Glock 48 and Ruger SR1911.
