0142 – Gearing Up For Summer Carry

/
Back in October or November which seems like forever ago I discussed preparing for winter carry and the issues that tend to present themselves when we add additional layers of clothing. Today we head in the opposite direction. As I mentioned yesterday I jumped on an airplane to head to Florida to visit family over the weekend. The warm weather was an excellent reminder of the issues that pop up when we molt from our winter wear into short shorts and tube tops.

0123 - Carry What You Train With, or...

Each of us has our favorites in life. Favorite food, favorite car, favorite movie. The list goes on. What makes something our favorite is probably different from person to person but if we were to try and generalize about favorites we might assume that favorites are things that we have a positive history with, things that make us feel comfortable, things we can count on. Favorites aren't limited to the comforts of life. Let's face it, we ALL have a favorite handgun! The question that I pose to you is, if you have a favorite why isn't your sweetheart stuffed in your waist band right now?

0122 - Carry Weapon Condition

One of the things I enjoy most about teaching is the opportunities it provides to be reminded of my humble beginnings. In the past 12 years or so that I have become increasingly interested in self-defense and concealed weapons I have had the opportunity to gain a tremendous amount of knowledge. Working with students who are where I once was is an excellent reminder of where it is that I came from. That being said, I don't ever remember being in a place where I didn't carry a gun with a round in the chamber. I am always surprised as to how often I read on the www how people are unsure as to whether they should carry their gun with a round in the tube.

0096 - Tactical Boot Lacing

This weekend at the show, Jamie Onion from Western Reserve Tactical was busting my chops about the podcast. Jamie is a regular listener, and we were talking about how fascinated and enamored he is with the quality content when he listens to my show. He did however give me fair warning, that he would be forever done with The Safety Solutions Academy Podcast when I started to cover topics like Tactical Boot Lacing. Well...

0094 - Open Carry: Great Law, Bad Practice

/
Three bills have been proposed in Tallahassee, Florida that would extend the rights of gun owners in the state of Florida. One deals with the medical profession and record keeping on guns, another a prohibition on preemption of FL State law, and the third and most interesting to me is an open carry provision. I pretty much laid it all out in the title. I think it is important and beneficial to have an open carry law and as a general rule I think that open carry is a bad practice. Today I'll explain.
