I Like Where Taurus is Going with the Curve Pistol

Yesterday the internet went crazy over the Taurus Curve pistol, mostly with bloggers bashing it. A lot of the criticism was warranted, but the Curve has some things going for it. The Taurus Curve is a new .380ACP pistol that quite literally is curved to fit your body (if you’re right handed, sorry leftys). I couldn’t care less about this feature, but it seems that the Curve has a couple other things going for it: …

Who are the 2A “Good Guys” in Business?

I post on Reddit under the Triangle Tactical account quite a bit these days. You’ll find me mostly in /r/CCW and a handful of other gun related subreddits. Recently there was a thread about how Dave & Busters (the adult arcade chain) had posted a sign banning open carry in their stores and that they were somehow “good guys” for doing this.

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. Several years ago when I took my class, classes were generally going for about $150 in this part …

I’m also curious to know why you do or do not still shop at these businesses. …

Sleeves on Extended Pistol Magazines

I generally carry 9 round extended magazine as a backup for my Springfield Armory XDs 9mm. When I carried a S&W Shield, I carried the 8 round magazine as a backup, and when I carried a Glock 19, I kept a 17 round Glock 17 magazine as a backup. The obvious thing here is that the extended magazines stick out of the grip of the pistol a bit more than the standard magazines, and in …
