Is It Reasonable? Carry Permits

Above arguments aside, there’s a lot of reasons why carry permits aren’t reasonable. LOTS of reasons.

The initial one we’ll talk about is abuse of power. You have a lot of sheriff’s offices, police departments, etc. that absolutely do not approve carry permits for anyone that isn’t a cop, connected to a cop, or connected to a politician in some way. This turns it into the haves versus the have nots. That isn’t how rights are supposed to work.
To add insult to injury, not all states allow you to go to a friendlier jurisdiction to complete the application for getting your carry permit. Therefore, how far a person can exercise their inalienable rights can be determined by some fat ass sheriff who probably drives home drunk.

Carrying In Sweatpants

Carrying In Sweatpants Looking into getting a bellyband so you can carry your gun while wearing sweatpants or gym shorts? Well, you may want to hold off. I learned a way to do it from a friend that might save you some money! Another point I should have hit on was a solution for those

5.7x28mm For Self Defense; Is it a glorified .22WMR?

5.7x28mm has become somewhat of a “sacred cow” to some. It’s capabilities have been over-exaggerated and the owners of guns in this caliber drool at the mouth at the very thought of body armor. Meanwhile a whole other group of individuals starts to get white stuff around their mouth because they can’t refrain from calling it a glorified .22 Magnum.

“I bought my handgun, now what?”

Across the board I see everyone asking what handgun they should buy for their first one, why they should buy a specific one, etc. What I rarely ever see is, “What do I do after I buy the handgun I’ve decided on?”

The few times I’ve seen it the responses were less than correct, those responses being “Time to look at the 2nd purchase!” Owning firearms is fun and buying them does become a hobby, to some extent. I love them, but I made the fatal flaw of just going and making that 2nd purchase without any forethought, so learn from my mistakes.

Revolver Reliability Is Over-exaggerated

One of the daily discussions that’s had is comparing the reliability of revolvers to the reliability of semi-autos. Without any evidence being provided this conversation usually ends with: “Yeah, revolvers are more reliable.” This isn’t supported with any kind of evidence, just anecdotal claims from the days of old.

It is my opinion, based on everything I have seen, that modern quality semi-autos are just as reliable, if not more reliable than revolvers. 

Making Change: Hold My Guns

Unfortunately, not many people are taking that energy to find things that could actually make a difference. So, when I hear about organizations trying to make a difference like “Hold My Guns” it makes me happy. Instead of diving into the divisive politics and heating the political debates up even more, we have people that are trying to make a difference without stripping everyone of their natural rights.

To Carry Or Not To Carry

To Carry Or Not To Carry If this question is ever asked, the answer should always be “to carry”. Obviously if you decide not to for employment reasons, no ones going to pass judgement on you. If you decided to carry regardless of that, awesome! Remember there’s an indisputable fact that wrecks any “Eh, I’m

Dunning, Kruger, Murphy, and You

Whether those shots end up on the target, or in the wall behind them is another discussion. The point is, you will miss. The world’s best marksman miss, the world’s best trainers miss, and they all miss without the adrenaline rush that comes from having your life threatened. What does that mean?
It means you can and/or will miss; especially if you’re only shooting at paper targets in your favorite isosceles stance that was overly stressed in your basic concealed carry course to get your permit.

Flashlights, what matters?

As I said in the beginning, I’m fascinated with lights, especially with looking at the different emitters and seeing how different companies get the output that they’re getting. I think there’s a place for most lights out there and there’s a bunch out there that are well… Snake Oil. Kinda like those Gas Station Specials that claim to be 10,000 lumens while running 10 low quality LED bulbs.
