Her Equipment is the Same

She can bring no more to living than the powers that make her great
As the Mother of the Infant and the Mistress of the Mate.
And when Babe and Man are lacking and she strides unclaimed to claim
Her right as femme (and baron), her equipment is the same. 

- Rudyard Kipling

I am both lacking babe and man, and I do stride to claim my rights.
With Smith & Wesson at my side.

God made Man and Woman.  Samuel Colt made them equal.  A fact I am grateful for.
