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.

Communication And Exclusion

I’m going to start this article off with a summation of Bible verses, specifically John 13:34: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” I would also like to quote two additional Bible verses. 
Matthew 7:1 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.”
Matthew 7:2 “For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you use, it shall be measured to you again.”

Self Defense Insurance?

Contrary to what people say on the internet, you can’t plea the 2nd Amendment to get out of criminal charges for injuring/killing another individual; even if it was in self defense. Beyond that, as well as you may know your state’s laws, you do not know or fully understand how all the bylaws, statutes, and case law can affect your case. And unless you’re an attorney, you won’t understand how they can affect you.

The statutes, bylaws, and the case law are all written in legalese or lawyer speak. These things can say one thing, but actually mean something entirely different; basically the equivalent of your girlfriend telling you to have fun with the boys.

The Vault Dweller’s Official Cookbook; Review

Welcome to my first book review! What better way to start-off than with the Fallout themed cookbook!? Recently it seems Bethesda decided that their sales for Fallout 76 were failing (because the game SUCKS) so what better way to recoup some of that refund money than by publishing cook books for their two big series? I’m just kidding, the book came out a little while before Fallout 76; but the game still sucks.

Chuck Canterbury Nominated to lead BATF

Let’s cut to the chase. Mr. Canterbury has a history of being anti-gun. He has a history of supporting anti-gun legislation. Canterbury as the leader of the Fraternal Order of Police testified for Sonia Sotomayor to become a judge on the Supreme Court. There’s been other matters that he has voiced opinions on as the leader of the F.O.P, including pushing against National Reciprocity/Constitutional Carry.
