Open Carry in a School?

Michigan has some crazy messed up concealed carry laws. Within the past couple of years, they have passed some legislation that allows for concealed carry permit holders to open carry in pistol free zones (but it’s still illegal for them to carry concealed in PFZ). A poster over at the Great Lakes 4×4 forum received this email from school administration after a ccw holder LEGALLY open carried a firearm in the school: November 22, 2013 …

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.

“I’m a big guy, I can conceal anything!”

Beeeeeeeee Esssssssss! I used to be pretty fat. Back around the beginning of this year I was up around 285-290lbs pretty consistently. I’m also pretty tall at around 6’2″. If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a thousand times: “I’m a big guy, I can conceal anything!” It’s a line of crap. When I was fatter, my waistband was tighter, and that made even buttoning my pants tough, not to mention trying to conceal …

I Hate Shopping

It’s time for me to buy some new clothes, as I’ve ungrew most every pair of pants I own. This, unfortunately, requires trying on clothes at the store. Today my bride and I made an impromptu stop at a clothing store, and I decided to try on some jeans. No big deal right? I didn’t think so either until I got into the fitting room, and realized I had a pistol in my waistband. I …

Concealed Carry and the NC State Fair

It seems that there is a debate brewing about whether or not the North Carolina Department of Agriculture has the authority to post “No Weapons” signs at the North Carolina State Fair that is going on right now. You see, in the past the fair was off limits for concealed carry due to the admission fee charged for entry, but with the passage of House Bill 937, that was removed from the law. (Photo Credit: …

Concealed Carry and Violent Crime at Colorado State

Ben sent me this information late last night, and I felt compelled to share: Someone over at Reddit has done some awesome research and noticed that as soon as concealed carry became legal at Colorado State University, violent crime fell through the floor. You know what’s sad about this? Under the insane anti-gun laws that were passed in Colorado earlier this year, concealed carry on college campuses is no longer legal. You might remember some …

“Dress Around the Gun…”

I’m sick of hearing this. Telling a new concealed carrier that he needs to dress around the gun is terrible advise, and probably leads to more of them buying bigger pistols, and not carrying them as much later on.  As it is right now, my Springfield XDs 9mm is on its way back to Springfield for the recall, and I’m sitting in a restaurant eating lunch with a Glock 17 in my waistband, undershirt, and …
