There’s a video inside of this post. In the video I discuss the seated dry fire practice I’ve been doing to better myself with the firearms I carry on a daily basis.
Neither are ideal and I honestly see both of them being on Forgotten Weapons inside of the next 3 years. As a side message to all gun manufacturers, your “snag free” sights? They aren’t snag free, you’re making the wrong side of the slights slanted. It really makes a person question how smart your design and marketing staff is.
There’s a 90% chance you’ll see this article via Facebook. Since that’s the case, I’m not going to add any of the details for this post to the excerpt. Click the link and you’ll understand why.
I was recently asked on Facebook about if there was a complete medical kit that I would recommend for serious use. Honestly, a lot of the ones I have seen are overly expensive, or they come with gear that isn’t suited for the tasks they’re “designed” for (such as RATS tourniquets). There’s also a difference in medical kits. You have your “first-aid kits” which are designed for non-serious injuries. Minor burns, scrapes, headaches, etc. Stuff that your 4 year old child can take care of.
Some people will say that lawfully using it in state ‘x’ means you’re perfectly fine to own a firearm.
Well, let’s look at the form we all fill out at the gun store, the 4473. More specifically, question 11 E.
Question 11 E reads as follows: Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?
Warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal law regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside.
Every time I look up “Beretta v CZ” I get one of two results typically. It’s either the PX4 Compact versus the P-07, or it’s the CZ 75 versus the Beretta 92 FS. The PX4 Compact v the P-07 is a good comparison, they’re both polymer compacts holding 15rds, and they’re DA/SA pistols. The 92FS versus the 75 isn’t a bad comparison either…but it’s kind of dated if you ask me.
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.
The most common argument I hear against AIWB is that it’s not “comfortable”.
Reflecting back to when I first started carrying strong side IWB, it wasn’t particularly comfortable either.
Yesterday I started right my article about whether or not carry permits are reasonable (Spoiler: They aren’t) and ironically I ran into an article that not only reinforced my personal beliefs, but reinforces the belief that permits to buy firearms are just as unreasonable. Before I get to explaining the map in the thumbnail, I want to review with you two of the amendments found in the Bill of Rights.
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…
