The Glock 43 and Hurt Feelings

Aaron is gonna hurt some feelings with this one. My opinion, where the Glock 43 makes the most sense is when carrying in non-permissive environments. If absolute concealment is vital, for whatever reason, then the Glock 43 is a better choice over the Glock 26 in some cases and for some people. And Speedo carry. […]

Iron Forged Concepts SARA

In recent years, advancements in helmet technology for tactical applications have shown tremendous progress.  Instead of having to strap a Kevlar bucket to your head and having it flop around, putting stress on your neck, we have helmets like the Ops-Core FAST helmet or the AirFrame by Crye Precision.  These helmets are lightweight, stable, and […]

The search for the perfect holster never ends.  I think this is very true because the idea of the perfect holster is different for everyone based on needs, wants, body type, firearm and method of carry (to name a few differences).  I find myself always looking for the next best thing, even though everything that […]

Closed Minds Hurt Freedom

I’m all for individual liberty but… I love it when a self-proclaimed freedom-lover makes a statement like that.  I love it because it immediately tells me that they in fact are not someone who loves freedom; they just love the idea of THEIR freedom and that of like-minded folks. Sadly, we are seeing lots of […]
