While I prefer to carry full-sized sidearms, sometimes something slim and relatively light is more appropriate. For the longest time, I used a pouch made by a good friend. Made to my specifications back when I had little understanding of … Continue reading
This illustrates the utility of short, handy PIV variant. With the scope set at 3.5x, off-hand snapshots are possible. That would be rather harder with the longer bull barrels typical of longer military sniper rifles. At typical police sniper ranges under … Continue reading
When I first saw this holster, I wondered why anyone would make a pretty holster for a completely utilitarian Glock.Then I got to shoot a new Gen.4 G19 at the range and the accuracy was enough to remind me. Reliable, … Continue reading

Charter Arms Chic Lady .38 with a Galco shoulder rig. Works well for car use.
Sideguard holster for Coonan .357.
You have probably seen my favorite green hat in quite a few photos. I got that hat in trade way back in 1999 when the guy buying my 9×18 Makarov was a few bucks short of cash and threw it … Continue reading
Being able to go from very casual to extremely purposeful in a second can be a tactical advantage.
Pocket carry is one of the most discreet ways of going armed. Doing it effectively requires two things: being able to carry the weapon comfortably and discreetly, and being able to present it quickly and effectively. The first condition is … Continue reading
Flatjack holster for Bersa 380, again by Dennis of Dragon Leather Works.
Boberg XR9-S “platinum” edition. It’s the most advanced pistol design out there, with a long barrel in a short slide, excellent trigger, great accuracy and minimal felt recoil. I am very much a fan. I mentioned Meco holsters before. 1 … Continue reading
