You’re attending class on a University campus. We will assume, although I know it is a bit of a fantasy, that you are permitted to carry a concealed firearm. While You are carrying on campus, you receive word that there is an active shooter somewhere on campus, firing shots. Everyone is panicking and running for safety. You decide to remain calm, alert, and on campus as everyone else is running to get away. [Read more…]
Listen carefully, never try and grab a falling gun. This is what could happen. First thing you’ll notice in this video is the man seems to be moving his concealed carry gun from his waist (holster?) to place it in his coat pocket. I don’t know why he was doing this, but probably not a good idea. However, when he looses control of his gun, and it begins to fall, he makes the serious mistake of trying to grab it. This might be the first and natural response, but please resist. Let it fall to the ground. Chances are very unlikely that it will go off and fire a round. You will notice when the gun begins to fall, the muzzle rotates so that it is facing the man. When he grabs for it, his finger slides inside the trigger guard and presses the trigger, firing a round. It appears to me that he was hit in the torso. Just let it fall.

The state of California has determined that when you cross this line in the desert (the California / Nevada border) the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution all of a sudden does not apply. You now no longer have the right to protect yourself outside of your home with a firearm. [Read more…]

As much as I hated to do it, I was thinking I needed to go up in waist size. Then I discovered Wrangler Comfort Solutions Series with the Comfort Flex Waistband. More comfort with the same waist size.
I took them into the dressing room to try on. I first needed to remove my XD9 Sub Compact [Read more…]
I am ashamed to say, it has been quite a while since I have dry practiced the way I carry my concealed firearm. This means, my concealed carry firearm, holster, and usual clothing. My firearm is a XD9 sub compact, my holster a Holster Kings appendix universal holster, and my clothing a par of denim shorts, or khaki pants, a muscle shirt, and a t-shirt. [Read more…]
