Be Wary of “Cheap” CCW Instructors

350 concealed carry permit holders in South Carolina are having their permits revoked after it has been found that the instructor was not providing the required training. I’ve said before that I didn’t really learn anything from my concealed carry class, but my instructor did do a good job of fulfilling the state requirements for the class.

Would You Buy a Painted Gun?

I recently had the opportunity to purchase a pistol that had been painted (ceracoat), but I wasn’t able to close the deal.

This. Is. Amazing. From the federal circuit court judge ruling on Palmer vs. DC: In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny.

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.
