Listener Content: NC CCW Information

A couple weeks back, I received an email from a listener who only identified himself as Mike. He attached an document that he created that goes through much of the North Carolina CCW information, and asked me to share it. I read through it, everything looked accurate to me, so check it out. As with anything though, doublecheck the statutes, as we’re all human. North Carolina CCW Information Document Download.

The “Glock 42” Plot Thickens…

I posted the following picture over at Carolina Shooters Club, and in the corresponding thread someone posted the following links to a merchant who appears to have added the Glock 41, and Glock 42 to their online store in preparation for the release of these new pistols: Glock 41: According to this Sportsmans Depot website, the Glock 41 will be a long slide fullsize .45ACP, basically a “practical tactical” version (like the Glock 34 and …

Small ‘Glock 42’ Teaser Ad?

I just saw this over on The Firearm Blog, there is a picture floating around that is supposedly a teaser ad for a Glock 42, teasing a small pistol. The picture quality is pretty low, and I’m not able to find the same thing on either Glock.com or the Glock’s social network id.glock.com so I’m not sure if it’s legit or not. I will tell you this: If it’s a singlestack 9mm, I’ll sell a …

Today is Gun Education Day at NCSU

A couple weeks ago I was notified about an upcoming event that was being held by the NCSU Students for Concealed Carry on Campus. Basically, they are inviting students to come learn about gun safety in a class held on campus, and then we will drive to a farm where they will be able to fire a gun and learn a little more. Here’s some more info on the event from the NCSU Technician. We’ll …

Dash Cam Footage Released in Texas Open Carry Arrest

Officer Ermis seemed to react negatively when Mr. Grisham appeared to adjust his rifle after the officer let go of it, which set this whole thing in motion. Personally, right at the beginning, I think Officer Ermis was a quick to pull his pistol, and he turned on the “asshole” attitude prematurely which seemed to fuel Mr. Grisham’s reaction. I’m not super familiar with all of the open carry intricacies in Texas, but it should …

Bizarro Week: Be Prepared/Situational Awareness

This afternoon I found myself saving the day for an unsuspecting member of the general public. I had to use a public restroom, and not long after entering the stall, I heard a voice from the other side of the wall. “Hey man, Could you pass me some toilet paper? There’s none over here.” I happily obliged, and passed this poor soul some TP under the wall. Checking for TP is one of the things …

Bizarro Week: “It’s for Breast Cancer Awareness” Rant

Now listen, I love boobs as much as the next guy, and breast cancer is a terrible disease, which makes it easy for scammers to latch onto, and tug at our heart strings in an attempt to sell their product. Yesterday afternoon I stopped to fill up the Tactical Compact Sedan before heading to the Wake County Firearms Education and Training Center for the monthly Action Pistol match. After getting the pump into the car, …

Post-Recall XDs 9mm Trigger Pull

A couple of days ago the guys at Carolina Gunrunners let me borrow their Lyman digital trigger pull gauge for a couple minutes when I stopped by the store. I grabbed my XDs 9mm and gave it 10 pulls on the gauge. I didn’t write down all 10, but here’s the high, the low, and the mean: High: 7lb 11oz Low: 6lb 12oz Mean: 7lb 1oz These were measured from the center of the trigger, …

Bizarro Week: I Hate Deer Hunting

Blasphemy, I know. I grew up in Northern Michigan and spent every fall wing shooting, and deer hunting with my dad. I always looked forward to bird hunting because it was fun to walk around the woods while BSing with my dad, and watching our old Springer Spaniel “Springer” work. After small game season ended, firearm deer season always started on November 15th. I always put on a good face for deer hunting, but I …
