A LITTLE ABOUT US

IT ALL BEGAN IN 2012 AFTER MY 2 CHILDREN & I HAD JUST SETTLED INTO OUR NEW HOME & I'D ESTABLISHED MY SALON LABORATORY BUSINESS IN NORTH CAROLINA. WE HAD RELOCATED FROM WYOMING WHERE MY ROOTS BEGAN. I WANTED TO GET BACK INTO HAVING FUN OUTDOOR ADVENTURES WITH MY KIDS IN OUR NEW LOCATION.

WE LOVE FINDING CAVES TO SPELUNK IN, LAKES TO KAYAK, MOUNTAINS TO HIKE, BEACHES TO RELAX ON,  HISTORICAL BATTLEFIELDS, MUSEUMS, HUNTING, CAMPING, HORSEBACK RIDING, ROCK CLIMBING, ETC.  LIKE ANTHROPOLOGISTS, IT ALWAYS HELPS US LEARN ABOUT THE RICH LOCAL CULTURE ANYWHERE WE HAVE LIVED. I LOVE LEARNING ABOUT OUR AMAZING COUNTRY AND THE WONDERFULLY DIVERSE PEOPLE IN IT WITH MY LITTLE TRIBE BY MY SIDE! AS A RESULT WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH ADVENTURES AND WONDERFUL FRIENDS ALL OVER.

 

AFTER SOME MAJOR LIFE CHALLENGES & HEALTH ISSUES I'D HURDLED IN THE RECENT PAST, IT MADE ME REFLECT MORE, REMEMBERING WHAT MY INTERESTS AND GOALS WERE AS AN ADVENTUROUS KID. SO I BEGAN PREPARING BY LOOKING FOR GEAR ONLINE AND IN STORES THAT WOULD HELP ME LIVE THE LIFESTYLE I WANTED FOR MY LITTLE TRIO.  

AS A CONCERNED, INDEPENDENT SINGLE MOM, I NEEDED THE RIGHT OUTDOOR CLOTHING TO EQUIP ME WHEN IN UNFAMILIAR TERRITORY WITH MY 4 YEAR OLD SON AND 1 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER.  

 

MY DAUGHTER SUFFERS FROM A MEDICAL CONDITION WHICH PREVENTEDHER FROM CRAWLING NOR WALKING UNTIL SHE WAS OVER 2 1/2 YEARS OLD. THIS ALSO CAUSES HER OTHER MAJOR PHYSICAL CHALLENGES THAT REQUIRED ME TO NEED PROPER STORAGE AND ORGANIZATION FOR EXTRA MEDICAL SUPPLIES. SINCE BIRTH SHE ALWAYS RODE IN MY BABY BACKPACK AND MY SON BY MY SIDE. I NEEDED AS MUCH OF A HANDS FREE DESIGN AS POSSIBLE. SOMETHING STYLISH (CAUSE I'M STILL A GIRL AND ARTIST AT HEART) MORE PRACTICAL, QUICK, AND TACTICAL! LIKE MILITARY B.D.U.s FOR CIVILIANS! LIGHTBULB MOMENT!  FIERCE, FUNCTIONAL AND FASHIONABLE! 

WHAT LIMITED ITEMS I DID FIND IN THE OUTDOOR CLOTHING MARKET FOR WOMEN OR CHILDREN, FELL VERY SHORT OF WHAT WE WANTED AND NEEDED TO BE SAFE AND PREPARED. I WANTED TO ENJOY WORRY-FREE EXPLORING, TO BE ABLE TO TRAVEL LIGHT AND FAST WHEN WE WERE OUT. TO HAVE ORGANIZED EFFICIENT CARE FOR MYSELF AND MY KIDS SO WE COULD ALL HAVE FUN AND I COULD WORRY LESS! IF IT ALL FELL ON ME TO GET THE JOB DONE, THEN I'D DO IT AS EFFICIENTLY AND STYLISHLY AS POSSIBLE! I WANTED TO FEEL CONFIDENT AND PLAY HARD TOO WHEN I GOT THE RARE CHANCE. 

ONE OF MY PRIMARY IRRITATIONS WAS EVERYTHING FOR WOMEN OR GIRLS WAS PINK! I HOLD NO ILL FEELINGS TOWARDS THE COLOR BUT I DO NOT HUNT FLAMINGOS, THUS NOT WANTING A FULLY PINK OUTFIT TO WEAR OUTDOORS. 

 

I USED MY EDUCATION, EXPERIENCE, & MILITARY BACKGROUND TO MAKE US OUTFITS THAT FILLED OUR NEEDS & FED MY CREATIVE ITCH TO SEE IF I COULD ACCOMPLISH MAKING US ALL OUR OWN "ULTIMATE SURVIVAL & ADVENTURE OUTFITS". AS A SINGLE MOM I KNEW THE IMPORTANCE OF MY ROLE IN TEACHING MY CHILDREN SURVIVAL AND LIFE SKILLS, AS WELL AS THE IMPORTANCE TO PLAY AND SEE THE BEAUTY AND BLESSINGS IN LIFE ANY CHANCE THEY GET.  IF THEY WERE EVER SEPARATED FROM ME WHILE IN THE WILD, I COULD REST EASIER KNOWING THAT THEY HAD TOOLS AND SUFFICIENTLY WARM, WEATHER PROOF CLOTHING ON THEM TO USE UNTIL I FOUND THEM. MY RESPONSIBILTY IS TO TEACH THEM THOSE SKILLS AS IT IS THIER RESOPNSIBILITY TO LEARN THEM. THEY WILL NEVER BE SET UP FOR FAILURE WITH KNOWLEDGE AND THE RIGHT ATTITUDE. 

PLAY LASTS LONGER IF YOU'RE PREPARED WITH CORRECT KNOWLEDGE AND THE PROPER TOOLS.

 

SO I GOT STARTED. COMBINING MY SEAMSTRESS, MEDICAL, MILITARY, CLOTHING DESIGN, AND OUTDOOR SURVIVAL EXPERIENCE; ALONG WITH MY MOTHER, SANDY WALKER'S YEARS OF SEWING & PATTERN MAKING EXPERTISE AND GENIUS,  WE MADE MY VISION & SKETCHES A REALITY. THUS THE PERFECT ADVENTURE CLOTHING WAS BORN! 

 

I POSTED PHOTOS OF MY LITTLE TRIBE EXPLORING THE MOUNTIANS IN THEM ON SOCIAL MEDIA.... THE NEXT THING I KNEW COUNTLESS PEOPLE WERE BEGGING ME TO MAKE THEM CUSTOM OUTDOOR OUTFITS TOO! THE INDUSTRY DID NOT FILL THE NEED FOR WOMEN & CHILDREN TO HAVE DURABLE, WARM, FUNCTIONAL, WEATHERPROOOF CLOTHING. ESPECIALLY NOT CLOTHING THAT WAS A MORE TACTICAL & ORGANIZED SYSTEM FOR BASIC SURVIVAL IN THE OUTDOORS! NOW WE HAVE A PRODUCT LINE THAT FITS IN THE TACTICAL, OUTDOOR, HUNTING, SURVIVAL, WINTER SPORT INDUSTRIES AND MORE! 

I NEVER ANTICIPATED THE RESPONSE I RECEIVED. ITS BEEN A HUMBLING, BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY THUS FAR... WHAT HAS BEEN EVEN MORE SURPRISING IS HOW MANY MEN ASK WHEN I AM GOING TO MAKE THEM A P.S.U. SO THEY CAN GET GEAR FOR THEIR WHOLE FAMILY AS WELL AS THEMSELVES! ( I DO HAVE A MENS LINE IN THE WORKS, BUT AS YOU KNOW, LADIES FIRST.) 

MY P.S.U.s (PROTECTIVE SURVIVAL UNIFORMS) ARE DESIGNED TO CARRY ALL TOOLS ESSENTIAL FOR A PERSONS BASIC OUTDOOR SURVIVAL NEEDS. IE: H2O FILTRATION TOOL, FIRE STARTER & TINDER, HAND WARMER/EMERGENCY BLANKET, COMPASS FOR NAVIGATION, KNIVES OR HAND-HELD CHAINSAWS, SIDEARM OR BEAR SPRAY, A MEDICAL TRAUMA PACK, PAPERWORK/LICENSE IN AN IMPERVIOUS POCKET, AMMUNITION, COMPACT TOILETRIES, RANGE FINDER/BINOS, OR ANY OTHER TOOLS OF CHOICE YOU WANT TO ADD TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR P.S.U. SYSTEM.

 

MAKING CLOTHING THAT FITS A WOMANS BODY CORRECTLY WAS THE FIRST STEP. MAKING IT FUNCTIONAL TO POTENTIALLY SAVE SOMEONE LIFE WAS THE NEXT. WORST CASE, THE GOAL IS TO BUY YOU SURVIVAL TIME USING THE P.S.U. SYSTEM AND TOOLS, SO RESCUE TEAMS CAN LOCATE YOU IF EVER LOST OUTDOORS. 

OUR PRETEEN & YOUTH GEAR HAS ROOM TO GROW AND LIKE THE WOMENS P.S.U., IS COMFORTABLE, WARM, IMPERVIOUS TO WEATHER, SCENT CONTROLLING, ANTIMICROBIAL, STYLISH, FUNCTIONAL, AND DURABLE. THE FABRIC USED IS MADE FROM RECYCLED COFFEE GROUNDS AND PLASTIC BOTTLES, THUS REDUCING OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT. WHO KNEW COFFEE COULD SAVE LIVES AS WELL AS CLOTHE THEM?! BRILLIANT!  

PISTOLS & PAISLEY CO.  HAS A PRIMARY OBJECTIVE. IT IS ALSO OUR SLOGAN, " COVER YOUR 6" (FOR ALL WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE TERM, IN THE MILITARY IT MEANS TO COVER YOUR BACK. LIKE A CLOCK, THE 12 IS YOUR FRONT.)

 

 YOU ARE THE HERO OF YOUR STORY. WHEN OUT LIVING LIFE BY YOUR TERMS, BE READY TO HANDLE WHAT IS THROWN AT YOU, TO AVOID BECOMING THE CASUALTY. FAILURE TO PLAN IS PLANNING TO FAIL. 

SO HERE WE ARE &  THE REST IS HISTORY!
