Don’t Forget: Your Car is a Great Weapon

A frightening video was released by the Arlington, TX Police department yesterday showing a woman being pulled from her car at an ATM by a subject with a gun, and being forced into the trunk. I don’t want to downplay the seriousness of the situation by Monday morning quarterbacking it too much, but there are a few lessons from the video that we can all benefit from: Your car is a great weapon. It’s big …

[Listen] Gun Belts – Sig Braces – Voicemails

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 1:01:08 — 42.0MB) | EmbedSubscribe: Android | RSS | MoreThis week we talk about gun belts. There’s a lot of BS spewed on the internet about belts, and we sort through it based on our experience. Some folks like leather belts because they have a more traditional look, and they tend to flex and form to your body real nice. Other folks like the “tactical” nylon type …

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 …

Michigan Becomes a Real Shall-Issue State

Post by Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners. Michigan has always had a weird CCW permit system that involved “County gun boards” that had the final say in whether or not someone would get their permit. Hardly what we’d call “shall issue” these days. I’m glad to see Gov. Snyder ditching the County gun boards in favor of a real shall issue system.

Keep Your Muzzle Pointed in a Safe Direction, and Your Finger Off the Trigger

Right here in NC two (assumed) CCW permit holders shot themselves while fiddling with their blasters in parking lots. From the Hickory Record: On Sunday afternoon, a 42-year-old man in the parking lot of Academy Sports on U.S. Route 70 accidentally shot himself in the leg while changing the ammunition in his handgun. The day before… The day before, a 24-year-old man accidentally shot himself–also in the leg, and also while he was sitting in …

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 …

Question of the Day: Knife + Flashlight or Gun?

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times that if I had to choose between carrying my knife and flashlight every day or my gun, I’d choose the knife and flashlight every time. I use my knife and flashlight every single day, and thankfully I’ve never had to use my gun. What say you? If you had to choose, which would it be?

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 …
