Concealed Carry and Road Rage

road-rage

You're cruising down the highway minding your own business when a jacked up truck cuts you off. Do you honk the horn and curse at him? Flip him the bird? Get aggressive back and tailgate him? Or do you let it slide and play defensive? Let's play this scenario out. You honk back, flip him off, and tailgate him. He gets mad and starts getting even more aggressive with his driving at you. You end up following him off the highway and get stopped behind him at a stoplight. He gets out of his truck … [Read more...]

Fatigue While Shooting

Bad Day Shooting, Good Day Work

Range time is the best time of the week. A bad day shooting, beats a great day at work any day! Sometimes I get so excited for a range visit that I bring 3-4 handguns and a backpack full of ammo. But how do you balance your shooting and fun to make sure your shooting session is actually training versus creating bad habits? Fatigue is very important to watch out for. Loading a Glock 19 full of .9mm and doing slow fire through an entire magazine (or two or three) will get your arms tired. It's … [Read more...]

Beware of Crimes of Opportunity

Good people are being targeted in what is known as "crimes of opportunity." Let's use this real life example of a robbery that occurred within the last couple months. An elderly couple had just finished shopping and was walking back to their car carrying their goods. A fine young gentleman was courteous enough to offer a helping hand. After he helped the elderly couple all the way to their car, he robbed them. It is unfortunate times that we must be careful and observant even when people are … [Read more...]

Non-Resident Concealed Carry Permits

Concealed Carry Reciprocity

Traveling often becomes a necessity of life. Work, family, or even leisure bring us to different states. Most of us armed citizens do not want to give up the privilege of carrying out of state. Some states, such as Wisconsin, do not have concealed carry reciprocity with all bordering states such as Minnesota. So if I have to travel just to the bordering state of Minnesota, what do I do? Luckily there is an easy and legal solution. A few states, such as Arizona and Utah, offer non-resident … [Read more...]

No Guns Allowed Signs – Carry Anyway or No?

no guns allowed

The dreaded "No Concealed Weapons" or "No Guns Allowed" signs. We all see them. They throw a monkey wrench in our day-to-day operations weekly. Let's set aside the obvious discussion about how these signs are a dis-service to anyone and everyone within that establishment, the facts about increased gun violence occurrence in these "gun free zones," and focus on the legal implications these signs have on armed citizens. We've all been there. You're out with friends, a co-worker, or simply … [Read more...]

Streamlight PT 2L – A great and affordable EDC light!

streamlight pt2l

Many armed citizens choose to carry not only a firearm as a part of their everyday carry routine, but also knives and/or lights as well. After doing some low light shooting events I decided to purchase a hand-held tactical light for occasional carry in my pocket or in my truck. My criteria were based around size and quality. Streamlight is a quality brand with a sound reputation so that was easy. They offer a wide variety of lights in a wide variety of size and lumens (light output). Since … [Read more...]

Cleaning and Lubing with Motor Oil?

gun cleaning

Cleaning products gain loyalty and cultish followings like 80’s rock bands. After playing around with a few, I stumbled into something a little out of the ordinary. In fact, I heard it from a gentleman I shoot with who is an armorer for the County Sheriff. He heard of this tip while at an armory program for a big name gun company (who will go un-named) that works quite well for the 1911 platform. The miracle oil? Mobil 1 Synthetic Motor Oil. Not only does it clean, but boy oh boy does that … [Read more...]

Concealed Carry While Traveling

Not being armed brings a naked feeling (in a bad way). When I'm on the road I want to stay armed if at all possible. But what happens if you’re traveling overnight in hotels, flying, or traveling out of state? First and foremost: know the law. If you're traveling out of state you must first find out if you have legal reciprocity to carry in that state as well as the laws surrounding concealed carry. Where can you and cant you carry? What defines the lethal use of deadly force? Visit … [Read more...]

Concealed Carry while Camping

Who doesn't stay armed while camping? With the arrival of summer comes the joys of the outdoors. Overnights with family, fun in the RV, or backwoods adventures - no matter what the flavor is we all prefer to do it armed. Carrying concealed safely while camping is something many of us overlook. Well its on me or in my truck, so its safe right? It's the gaps in the day or our routine that could leave us liable for a gun-gone-missing or being found/stolen by someone else. Carrying in your … [Read more...]
