The focus of this blog is the use of the handgun as a personal-protection tool against unexpected criminal assault. With that said, I believe all citizens should be well-armed with the ability to be a combatant, thus the true intention of the Second Amendment. However, I think too many people in the firearms culture have... Continue Reading →
Pocket carry is quite popular and has a number of substantial advantages: Notably, you can pre-emptively acquire a grip on the gun and look like a dude that just has his hand in his pocket. If you practice sufficiently, the draw is very fast if the grip is already established. The other benefit is that... Continue Reading →
I was a guest on the CCX2 show again and we had an excellent discussion on lethal force related to civil unrest and riots, as well as a good discussion on alternate forms of carry while exercising, and a number of other topics. If interested, check it out Here.

No matter how well-provisioned your home is, and no matter how well-positioned it is within a stable environment,... Continue Reading →
