Han Shot First, And That’s Okay

Tonight I’m watching Star Wars: A New Hope and I watched the scene in the Mos Eisley Cantina where Han Solo is confronted by Greedo looking to collect on Jabba The Huts bounty on him. During the original scene, Greedo and Solo are sitting in a booth in the cantina, and Greedo has Solo at gun point the entire time. While the two are talking, Solo slowly reaches under the table, retrieves his blaster, and …

There are no fees or dues to belong, just always be polite Policemen in the public are armed, as they should be. However Politemen are not armed out in the public, …

This Week in Bad Ideas

Sigh. I’m not sure what’s going on with gun manufacturers and accessory companies this week. First, the folks at DeSantis (who make fine leather holsters) came out with this monstrosity this week: Post by Triangle Tactical. What were they thinking? A “holster” that attaches to the gun, but other than holding the gun onto your belt, doesn’t do anything that a holster is supposed to do (like cover the trigger guard, have a means for …

Armed Doc Shoots Deranged Madman With Concealed Handgun

It was not clear why Silverman, a doctor for nearly 25 years, was armed at the office. Bernice Ho, a spokeswoman for Mercy Fitzgerald, said Thursday it was against hospital policy for anyone other than security guards to carry weapons. I think we know why he was carrying. When I was quite young I remember my dad telling me that there’s a difference between being right, and being dead right, meaning that sometimes you have …

A Blaster in the Crapper

Second Amendment Foundation Sues North Carolina

I had no idea this was coming, but I couldn’t be happier to see it! BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today filed a lawsuit in federal district court in North Carolina on behalf of an Australian citizen who legally resides in the state, but cannot obtain a concealed carry permit under a state law that only allows citizens to get such permits. This is great news! We have plenty of people who are …

Cowhide vs. Horsehide Holsters

Years ago when I purchased my first Crossbreed Supertuck holster, I had heard from many sources that the horsehide version was the best in hot climates because the horsehide wasn’t as absorbent as cowhide, and because of this it would keep sweat off of your pistol. After wearing the horsehide Supertuck for 3+ years I never noticed it really repelling sweat, so when I won a free Crossbreed holster at a match, I just went …

“I want to give my Girlfriend a gun, but only want it to make noise”

I’m almost as a loss for words here. This post starts out pretty sane: person is having an issue with a peeping Tom, and want to make sure his girlfriend has a means to protect herself should there be a home invasion when he isn’t home. Noble. But then the derp starts. He wants to load some blanks for her so he doesn’t risk (the possibly inexperienced with firearms) girlfriend shooting his garage or one …
