Re: Lost a baby in the family

TAM, I'm so very sorry to learn of your family's loss. We've had miscarriages in our family as well, and they are difficult to bear. This one is especially so because it was so late in the pregnancy when you think the biggest worries are behind you. Prayers sent for the parents, you and your wife, a...

Re: 2017 Situational Awareness Primer in 30 Seconds

Here's a video that explains why we can easily miss the obvious let alone the subtle, even when we're not texting.

It's well worth watching.

Re: LTC individual has ND at Houston Galleria

Near as I can tell his gun fell from his back pack and discharged in the Galleria shopping mall in Houston. Obviously, this has not done the rest of us any favors. The Galleria itself is a nice place. Bright lights. Lots of well dressed people. Shiny stores. Sounds of children laughing and people t...

Re: Battle rifle???? Really?

I don't care too much about semantics but to me, assault weapon means something that resembles an AR15 or AK47. A battle rifle is something more substantial something like an M14 or AR10. I have no Idea what a "Battle Pack" of 223 ammo is. Maybe, it's what we used to call bulk ammo. Battl...

Re: Fist Holsters #K2 High Ride OWB for Glock 43

First I've heard of it and I've haven't had issues with it although I've only had it a year. I can provide better pictures if necessary but there are no issues like this that I have experienced. The issues I experienced happened when they were over two years old. The problem is that the stitch hole...

Re: Fist Holsters #K2 High Ride OWB for Glock 43

These holsters do hug the body and do a great job of concealment. However: Be aware that this design, which uses stitching instead of rivets, is prone to tearing along the stitch line. I have had several of these holsters, and two tore at that point. In one case this resulted in a gun falling out of...

Re: New sights recommendation for S&W Shield

I like XS big dots for my weapons.... I do not own a Shield. This is far by my favorite. I do have XS Sights on my Shield 9 and Shield .45. I place XS Big Dots on all of my firearms for self defense including my AR's except for my 1911's. They are Dan Wesson's and come with a sight really similar t...
