Re: What knife do you carry?

A more interesting question is how do you train to defend yourself with the edge weapon you EDC? A valid point, which I am too old, sore, fat, and out of shape to contemplate. My back and bunions hurt. :lol: If attacked, I’m just going to have to shoot them and be done with it. As the Private said ...

Once again, unarmed does not equate to harmless

John Daub (Hshoi) https://blog.hsoi.com/2018/01/06/once-again-unarmed-does-not-equate-to-harmless/ Just because someone is “unarmed” does not mean they are not dangerous. An unarmed person can certainly inflict fatal damage upon another. I wish people would stop believing in the fallacy that an unar...

Re: Renewal frustration...

Why does the renewal process get 60 days? They shouldn't have to do a full background check, and they already have the fingerprints. In the year 2018 this process should be easily automated. Electronic application is received. Electronic background check commences (only needs to include the period ...

Re: What are your 2018 shooting goals?

after the last 3 years .... my 2018 goal is to be physically able to at least go to the range more often. It ain't easy to turn 60, then almost immediately start being afflicted for the next few years with crazy, out of the ordinary stuff .... but it is what it is. jd Understood. The Army told me I...

Re: What are your 2018 shooting goals?

In the 12/24/17 Handgun World Podcast, Karl Rehn and John Daub discuss shooting drills. http://www.handgunworld.com/episode-443-karl-rhen-and-john-daub-minimum-competency-handgun-drills/ In 2017, I took several classes from Karl and John and KR Training. https://krtraining.com/ I am confident that I...

Re: OC Has Gun Taken Away

There is a good deal of confusion concerning the definition of "retention level." See the Safariland site for details. https://www.safariland.com/holsters-and-gear-resources/holster-retention-levels.html#sm.0001k7sc5pvnne8xqhf2hkm27ry1u

Re: Annoying Trends.

Over priced Used Guns! :iagree: When I can buy a new one for a little more, I'm not going to touch a used one. For me, it would take a steep discount to even consider buying someone else's problems. I bought my first pistol from my wife's aunt, who was recently widowed. All others have been new. Go...

Re: OC Has Gun Taken Away

I don't often carry concealed, but when I do, I consider it to be a degraded mode. For me, carrying openly is more efficient. So I seek out training in drawing from concealment and I practice the skill. This is the same concept I used in training my soldiers. I train harder than I expect to fight. T...

Re: OC Has Gun Taken Away

This thread came very close to being locked a few times, but folks seem to have toned down the rhetoric. When Carl posted the account of a handgun being snatched from a holster, it was good information for people who carry openly. I guess it was predictable that the more ardent open-carry supporter...

I rarely OC and I carry a speed safe knife to encourage anyone who try to grab it! Encourage or discourage? :lol: I don't OC publicly but I do OWB carry with a cover garment quite frequently. And I recently picked up another Safariland ALS holster after giving it a try last year and not liking it, ...

Re: OC Has Gun Taken Away

Open carrying is pretty much the dumbest thing possible in public environments where you don't know the people around you. You are telegraphing exactly how you're armed and where your firearm is at. I fully support the change in laws that support open carry, but doesn't change the fact that if you'...
