0286 - If You are a Shooter, Check Your Carry-On Bags When You Travel

/
I end up traveling by air quite a bit both for pleasure and for business. This means that I end up taking guns onto airplane in my checked luggage quite often. Even when I don't take guns with me, I work to be pretty careful with my carry-on bags. There are all kinds of prohibited items that I use in the course of a day that could end up in my carry on if I'm not careful. Ammunition is one of those items. So, I check my bags.

0271 - Support The Second Amendment at Starbucks

/
I don't often cover current events or politics and I hope I don't ever make you feel like you are obligated to do what I do. I do however, want to make sure you know where I stand on issues and give you the information that you need to make decisions on issues that may be important to you. If you love coffee and guns, maybe you want to head to Starbucks, buy some java and pay your tab with $2 bills!

0261 - An Interview with Ray Kohout Designer of the Heizer Defense Double Tap

/
Some folks have dubbed the Double Tap a fancy derringer. I think this is a pretty narrow view. Speaking of narrow, .58" in width. The Double Tap is aimed at the professionals and those that are serious about self-defense. Its size, design, materials and caliber all speak to its purpose as a fighting tool. Its innovative design, and serious price tag distinguish it from other small guns only time will tell if consumers are able to do the same.

0259 - An Interview with Author and Revolver Expert Grant Cunningham

/
My interview with Grant Cunningham proves my point well that SHOT Show is an opportunity to gather knowledge as much as it is an opportunity to drool over new gear. Grant does a wonderful job of concisely sizing up some of the issues that folks are confronted with when they start to look at revolvers and how they fit into modern combatives.

0225 - Preparing for Cold Weather CCW

I really do like the cool weather of fall and winter. I know it doesn't come without its complications, but at the same time, I feel more able to mitigate those challenges than I do the challenges of hot weather. Today we are going to take a look at how we can more efficiently carry our self-defense tools in cold weather. The tips and tricks apply to all of the tools you might choose to carry, but we will focus on the handgun as our primary example. Enjoy the show, enjoy the season and have a great day!

0169 - Rules vs. Laws

One of the issues many of my students struggle with is when to carry a gun. For me that isn't so much of a struggle. The first thing I try to do is understnad the differences between rules and laws and why the difference matters. That is our topic for today. Enjoy the show.

0168 - Off Body Carry

/
I am a firm believer that there is no one carry system solution for everyone who would like to carry a gun. What works for me, works for me. There may be some folks who have success with a similar system, but it would be egotistical and wrong for me to think that my way is the way. In the same token, It would be pretty heady of me to poo poo another's system because it doesn't work for me. When it comes to off body carry. I have only seen one person who was able to pull it off consistently without major foul ups.

0149 - Fine Tuning Your Carry System

/
Those of us that carry our guns need to be constantly vigilant to make sure our system of carry is working efficiently for us. We must make sure that we are effectively concealing, able to quickly draw our handgun, and have a system that is convenient and comfortable enough to wear every day. The best way to achieve these goals is to constantly look for ways that we can refine our carry system and make it better.
