Critical Response Tactical Lo Pro Holster Review

lo pro holster

Critical Response Tactical sent CCA a Lo Pro holster (inside the waistband) and Q-Mag carrier and asked me to give it an honest review. Let me first start off by saying I am not associated with the nice folks over at CRT and dive right into our review! The Lo Pro holster and Q-Mag carrier are an all kydex construction. The fit, finish, and definition in the kydex is superb. The holster has adjustable retention (a big plus) and has a very smooth and predictable draw. For the testing I was … [Read more...]

Taurus 738 TCP .380 Review

Taurus 738 TCP .380

Taurus? Really? I never was a huge fan of Taurus. In fact, I thought I’d never own one. However, this little pocket package is quite appealing and something I don’t believe I’ll give up! I began my search for a .380 pocket gun when the need became more pressing. Some days while at work and dressed with slacks and a dress shirt it became too difficult to hide my compacts or even single stacks chambered in 9mm or 45ACP, even with an inside the waistband tuckable holster. On these days I … [Read more...]

PJ Kydex Holster Review

Pj Kydex Holster

PJ Holsters have created quite the buzz in the online concealed carry community. They are an all kydex, one-piece construction. The clip is actually molded out of the same piece of kydex as the holster itself. This lends itself to a simple and slim profile that wears and hides very easily. The holster we tested was an IWB clip on loop with a 15 degree forward cant for a S&W M&P 9c. I was very eager to get my hands on one as the custom nature and build to order philosophy comes with a … [Read more...]

Glock 26 vs. Smith and Wesson M&P 9c: Which One is Best for You?

durashield7!

The Glock 26 has a legendary history and popularity as a concealed carry and backup weapon for both civilians and law enforcement. It accepts magazines for the Glock 26, 19, and 17 making it a very versatile weapon. Its 10 + 1 magazine capacity makes it quite a stout package despite its tiny size. The only real critiques of the Glock 26 are its width and its short grip allowing only a 2 finger grip for folks with large mits. Glocks by nature are girthy and can be hard to hide for some people. … [Read more...]

Kydex Trigger Guard Holsters: For On Body & Car Carry

Kydex trigger guard holsters are extremely versatile and safe options for less traditional carry methods. For deep concealment when no other holster may work, these trigger guard holsters add virtually zero bulk to the gun. They can be used for inside the waistband appendix carry, as well as strong side hip carry. Although we don’t recommend this style for everyday use, as the gun is less secure than it would be in a traditional holster with two points of attachment to the belt, they certainly … [Read more...]

Is the Smith and Wesson M&P Replacing Glock?

Smith and Wesson M&P

The Smith and Wesson M&P has been taking market share away from Glock in the Law Enforcement world since its launch. This momentum has been keeping up at an extraordinary rate. Smith and Wesson is getting the M&P in the hands of the Los Angeles Sherriff’s Department, Texas DPS, and is now approved by many Federal agencies for duty carry. In fact, many City, County, and State departments are issuing the M&P. So why is this all happening? What is happening to Glock? We all know … [Read more...]

Is the 1911 the Perfect Carry Gun?

The 1911 has been around a very long time. Many people have shied away from them for a few reasons. They are expensive, their ammunition is expensive, they have a manual safety that takes lots of training to become muscle memory, and some of them have reliability issues. What about the good? They are SLIM! They are very, very, very accurate. Most people shoot them better than any other platform. They look classy, and sharp. They are iconic to American history. They are chambered (most often) … [Read more...]

Striker Fired Guns or Traditional Double Actions for Concealed Carry?

Striker Fired versus Double Action

Glock took the American market by storm with the introduction of the Glock 17. Why? Two reasons: 1. Ease of use 2. Reliability Smith and Wesson, who had a very strong presence in the law enforcement market, made extremely reliable semi-automatics. There was nothing “wrong” with them per se, but when Glock introduced the striker fired system, it revolutionized the trend in defensive weapon selection for both law enforcement and civilians alike. Heckler and Koch, Smith & Wesson, and … [Read more...]
