Gun Industry: Get it Together with Weapon Mounted Lights

I want to see some gun, holster, and weapon mounted light companies all lock a bunch of their engineers into a room for a couple days. Maybe they’ll come up with a solution for carrying a pistol with a weapon mounted light that doesn’t suck. Currently our options are giant lights (which we know don’t have to be that big, just look at the small flashlights out there right now) in giant holsters made of …

Stepping Up Your CCW Rig in Wake of Terrorist Threats?

Am I the only person that has went back to a doublestack “wonder 9” for CCW after hearing about the recent al qaeda ISIS threats to behead people in the streets, and the Sydney siege incident where people were held hostage in a cafe until it was stormed by police? There’s something much more comforting about having 16 rounds on my hip, with 15 more in a reload than there is with my previous 8 …

Tuckable Holsters: Who Uses These Things?

Last week I posted about following the #kydex hashtag on Instagram. I keep seeing comments on holster pictures over there like this: “I really wish this was tuckable!” “This would be better if it was tuckable!” I want to know, does anyone actually carry daily with their shirt tucked in between their gun and the holster clips? I’ve tried it a time or two with my Crossbreed Supertuck, but I’ve never been satisfied enough to …

Glock 19 Concealed Carry Modifications

As you probably know, I recently picked up a Gen4 Glock 19 as a new concealed carry pistol. I wanted to go back to a doublestack gun, and I also wanted something that was very similar to my Glock 34 that I shoot in competition. I don’t tend to make a lot of modifications to my carry pistols, but I’ve done a couple things to the Glock 19: Custom Grip Plug Funnel Glock pistols have …

City of Raleigh Finally Updates Park Signage to Allow CCW

Maybe I’m a little late to the party, because I’ve admittedly been absent from any Raleigh city parks for a while, but the last time I was out at Durant Nature Park the park rules signs just had duct tape on the old signs covering the part about concealed weapons. If I remember correctly (typing this on my phone otherwise I’d look it up) we gained park carry with the passage of House Bill 650 …

Who are the 2A “Good Guys” in Business?

I post on Reddit under the Triangle Tactical account quite a bit these days. You’ll find me mostly in /r/CCW and a handful of other gun related subreddits. Recently there was a thread about how Dave & Busters (the adult arcade chain) had posted a sign banning open carry in their stores and that they were somehow “good guys” for doing this. Commenters were implying that the banning of open carry was somehow a wink …

Buying Glocks is Fun

At the gun store: “Hey, y’all have any Gen4 Glock 19s in stock?” “Yeah” “Cool, give me the paperwork.” “Uhhh, don’t you want to see it?” “Nah, it’s a Glock.” “…I love customers like you.”

[POLL] Where Do You Stand on the “Respectful Request” Not to Carry in a Business?

It seems that the 2A community is divided on the issue of whether or not to still shop at, and do business with businesses who have issued these “respectful requests” not to carry guns in their stores. I’m curious where the Triangle Tactical braintrust stands on the issue, hit the embedded poll below, and please share with your friends! I’m also curious to know why you do or do not still shop at these businesses. …

Sleeves on Extended Pistol Magazines

I generally carry 9 round extended magazine as a backup for my Springfield Armory XDs 9mm. When I carried a S&W Shield, I carried the 8 round magazine as a backup, and when I carried a Glock 19, I kept a 17 round Glock 17 magazine as a backup. The obvious thing here is that the extended magazines stick out of the grip of the pistol a bit more than the standard magazines, and in …

Ballistic Masturbation and Entertrainment

The folks over st spsamurai.com published blog post recently about “Ballistic Masturbation” and Entertrainment (A term that Chris Clifton from Defensive Concepts talked about in Episode 85 of our podcast.) I could name some names here, but I don’t think that is super important. What’s important is that you do your homework on a trainer before paying them a few hundred bucks for shooting instruction. I don’t care if someone has military or law enforcement …
