The System Is Failing, Let’s Be Honest.

As times have continued, we have seen further encroachments made by the government to invade our personal spaces. The TAPS Act which has yet to pass, Red Flag Laws, and more all in recent history. We have seen the good citizens, the law abiding citizens getting their wrists slapped for the acts of those who aren’t good citizens, aren’t law abiding citizens, or aren’t even citizens at all. Hell, even diplomats get more leniency than citizens do via diplomatic immunity. 

Rocketbook Notepad Review

RocketBook Everlast Mini is a pocketable sized notepad that’s… reusable? Yes, it’s a reuseable notebook that comes with an erasable pen. The pages are waterproof and almost feel like the sheets our teachers would use on those stone age overhead projectors. The pen that the pad comes with is a Pilot erasable FriXion.

For data entry, condensing what you’re carrying with you (without losing information), etc. I feel like the Rocketbook is definitely the way to go for those who still like manually writing notes (don’t feel bad, I do too).

The Bystander Effect and Concealed Carry

The Bystander Effect and Concealed Carry “The bystander effect of bystander apathy, is a social psychological claim that individuals are less likely to offer help to a victim when other people are present. The greater number of bystanders, the less likely it is that one of them will help.” This effect was “discovered” and named

The Best Holster for Concealed Carry…

The Best Holster for Concealed Carry… Once a person get’s their first handgun, their first question is almost always: “What holster is the best to conceal this gun with?” Immediately after hundreds of people flock to the comments section giving their opinion. They don’t give any reasoning (most the time), they just tag the company,

How ERPO Laws Should Be

The current ERPO or Red Flag Laws offer zero protections for the accused, and there are zero protections for gun owners safeguarding them from false claims. As things stand, multiple Constitutional and unalienable rights are being broken with the implementation of these laws, and the fact that anyone can “rationally” say that’s okay shows the decaying state of our society.

Streamlight TLR-7 versus Olight PL-Mini Valkyrie

A LOT of people are looking for a comparison between the TLR-7 and the PL-Mini Valkyrie. These two competing lights don’t offer a whole lot that I’m super enthusiastic about which sucks. Right off the bat, this is like when you were forming teams for dodge-ball in elementary. You’re looking at the last two kids, one with extremely thick no-see-ums on, and the other being a tanker unit.

Pocket Carry; Some Pointers

1. Back Pockets: Just don’t. Backpocket carry is on the list of “Worst Possible Ideas” when it comes to carrying a firearm.

Backpockets don’t have the same security as front pockets, I don’t think this is disputable. Their inability to stay closed at all times is why wallets get lost. This issue becomes even more of a problem when one starts to get active. Past the lack of “retention” if you will, your draw is going to be significantly slower than if the gun were in your front pocket. To add insult to injury, have fun getting to it while in a seated position.

The Lazy Man’s Wedge

I got the Dr. Scholl’s idea from a post on YouTube which I ended up watching a video of on YouTube. Me, being the lazy individual I am, saw it as a cheap/low maintenance alternative to a foam wedge. I ended up going out and picking up the women’s heel insert (fearing the men’s might be too large for the holster), went home, and got it attached as soon as possible.

In the month that I’ve used it, I’ve logged over just at 200 hours of wear time….

Olight PL-Mini Review

“TacCat, do you like anything about this light…like at all?”
Yes! I do! The rim around the lens helps decrease the amount of fouling on the lens. It helps so much so that it didn’t have any fouling after 500 rounds in one sitting.
The low battery indicator, even though it’s necessary, is a really nice feature that I wish other companies would implement.
Light color, I love true white/white colored beams of light. They appear brighter and take more time to adjust to on the receiving end.
And finally, the controls. They aren’t the best by any stretch of the imagination, but using them is a lot easier than the TLR-7 and APL-c in my opinion.
