Springtac Holsters Lawful Carry

Chances are good that if you carry a concealed firearm or have been involved in the shooting sports for any length of time, you have at least one box of holsters you have used and then changed to something else. As firearms instructors, my Dad and I are...

Modern Trojan Horse

Today we’re far removed from the days when urban hunters on their day off would climb aboard a city bus or streetcar with a long arm and a lunch box for a day’s field hunt. Likewise, uniformed police officers and security personnel wielding long guns outside the confines of a marked patrol vehicle tend...

Flashbang Holster

Judging by the number of exhibitors of “tactical nylon” goods at this year’s SHOT Show, that portion of the industry is flourishing. I surveyed booth after booth of slings, belts, pouches, packs and cases in all sizes and descriptions: Ranger Green, Olive Drab, Coyote, Flat Dark Earth, Scorched Earth (black), Multi- Cam™...

Timber Ridge Tactical Case

On the ranch, I usually carried a .357...

Don Hume Model H721 O.T.

Over the years, I have said that you should carry the same thing on duty as off duty—or at least very similar gear when off duty. I see guys carry a 1911, .45 Glock or .357 Magnum revolver on duty then carry a .25 auto around town off duty.  Their...

Garrett Industries Freedom Line

As NRA instructors, my Dad and I teach a course that allows law-abiding citizens to obtain a concealed carry permit (CCW) in our home state of Arizona. A large percentage of the students— young, middle aged and old—in our classes are new shooters. While that may initially...
