This Week in “Skills > Tools” – IDPA Match

Last week I shot the H2O Fowl Farms Adam Ginette Memorial IDPA match with my Glock 19 from t-shirt concealment. I shot the match the way I actually carry. Glock 19 (that’s basically factory stock other than sights and a grip plug) a Crossbreed Supertuck IWB holster, and a cheap mag pouch that I’ve had forever. Discounting the IDPA rules violations I had a great match. I shot fast, got my hits, and even had …

Raleigh Judge Grants Injunction Against NC Law Barring Permanent Residents from Obtaining CHPs

For several years now, I’ve been pretty outspoken about some of the changes that need to be made surrounding NC concealed carry law, and one of the things that I’ve always thought needed to be changed was that NC law did not allow the issuance of concealed handgun permits to people who are non US citizens.

CCW Badges? We Don’t Need No Stinking Badges!

Today a bill was filed in NC for an extra special concealed carry permit that would basically allow permit holders to ignore all anti-ccw signage in the state… and… it would require them to carry a CCW badge issued by their sheriff. CCW badges are dumb, even if the bill would require them. Its SB708 and its called the Homeland Security Patriot Act. I almost feel like Senator Tarte is just trolling us with this.

Donnie Harrison: Good Guy Sheriff

When I got home from work this afternoon I had a letter waiting for me in the mailbox from the Wake County Sheriffs Department. It was a small piece of card stock folded in half and sealed with tape. When I opened it, this was written on the inside: You’re probably saying “Okay Luke, they sent you a letter, but they are legally required to notify you that your permit is about to expire, so …

Durham County, NC is Hindering Gun Ownership

Several months ago I was contacted by a coworker asking about purchasing a handgun for self protection. He asked how it works in North Carolina, and I explained the whole process of needing either a Pistol Purchase Permit or Concealed Handgun Permit for any handgun purchase, no matter where he buys it. He seemed satisfied with the information, and we didn’t speak about it again until last week. Last week he approached me and said …
