Closing the Revolver Experiment

This past year has been one of significantly more work with a revolver than I usually do.  This was fostered by my acquisition of a Ruger SP101 in early 2017 which quickly usurped my Ruger LCR as my primary deep concealment gun.  The LCR and other such light weight small revolvers are ideal for pocket,...

The Remora Gen II Clipless Holster

I have written several articles here and elsewhere on the use of clipless holsters.  These holsters rely on an outer material that clings to clothing and with adequate waistband retention they stay in place without relying on an apparatus to actually clip onto the belt as does a traditional holster.  I use traditional IWB holsters...

The Sticky Holster

I have a couple of sticky holsters that I use for small frame revolvers and I absolutely love them.  They are better than the Remora, in my opinion, since they are clingier and do stick to fabric more.  In fact, it is the only holster I use for my revolvers, aside from a belly band...

Back to the Speedloader

Every time I write about my escapades with the revolver I start with the same disclaimer:  I am a firm believer in carrying a substantial gun and I carry a double-stack auto at all times possible.  The issue is, however, I can’t do that all of the time and when I need deep concealment the...

Thoughts on Carrying a Revolver as a Primary

The Ruger SP101

I have a thing for revolvers.  I primarily carry a striker-fired double-stack 9mm handgun as I like having the capabilities of such a weapon when roaming a world so infested with evil.  However, I spend considerable time shooting and carrying revolvers as well.  The reason is two-fold.  First, there is a practicality issue: when I...

Running the Snub: Consistency Required

I just spent five days at my folks' country place.  My father is an avid shooter.  In particular he is an exceptional revolver shooter.  His ability with the small-frame revolver and his extensive experience with it led me to see the merits of the platform in the first place.  Flying to his place for a...

Training with the Snub

Due to my social commitments I often need to carry an exceedingly concealable firearm.  Therefore, I am essentially stuck with the uber-tiny 380 autos or the 38 Snub.    After much experimentation I am entirely in the 38 snub camp and it remains my small gun of choice.  It is small enough to conceal in any...
