Your First Handgun

A question I get asked fairly often is what handgun do I recommend as a first, and potentially ONLY, handgun. Partly because I think this is an interesting debate, and partly because I’m lazy and want to have a post to refer people to in the future, I decided to put my thoughts together and […]

PPQ Appendix Carry

Appendix Carry Update

Several months back, I decided to give appendix carry a try. Many of you have asked how this is going, so I decided to post an update. Since trying and liking appendix carry, it’s been my primary carry position and I honestly don’t see that changing anytime soon. For me, carrying AIWB took some getting used […]

Magnum Research Mags for Walther PPQ

The Walther PPQ is one of my all-time favorite handguns. It’s reliable, accurate, and has perhaps the best ergonomics and trigger of any striker fired handgun on the market. It does have a downside though, and that’s the high cost for magazines. As you might have read on this site or elsewhere on the interwebs, […]

Pictured above L-R: Walther PPQ in a Kaluban Cloak OWB holster, and Smith & Wesson Shield in a PHLster Skeleton holster. I’m a big fan of Kydex holsters. Don’t get me wrong, I think leather holsters can be great as well, I just generally prefer Kydex. If you haven’t yet discovered a love for thermoplastic […]

Getting Started with Appendix Carry

I’ve been carrying concealed for about 10 years now, but up until a few months ago, I had never tried appendix carry. Appendix carry is where you carry your pistol inside your waistband in the appendix area. Appendix carry is also commonly referred to as AIWB, which is an acronym (because who doesn’t love a […]

Remora No Clip Holsters are holsters made in Naples, Florida that use compression and friction as the retention mechanism. As you will see, the name Remora is very fitting. A Remora, sometimes called a suckerfish or sharksucker, is a fish that attaches itself to sharks, manta rays, whales, and turtles. Remora holsters attach themselves to […]

Walther PPQ 2,000 Round Update

2,000 Rounds, 0 Failures In the past couple weeks I have been to the range several times with my Walther PPQ, finally passing the 2,000 round mark. As I mentioned in my 1,000 Round Update, I decided to go 2,000 rounds before cleaning or lubricating the pistol to see how it would perform. So far […]
