Survival Sheath Systems Bayonet Holster

Survival Sheath Systems Bayonet Holster

If you regularly carry a gun, you know that the perfect pistol is nearly useless if married to an imperfect holster.  Anyone who holds a concealed carry permit will eventually amass an entire drawer or box of holsters that were purchased to be the next, great solution to the daily carry problem. Seldom does one encounter a truly new idea in [...]

“Proof that Concealed Carry permit holders live in a dream world” — A Rebuttal

“Proof that Concealed Carry permit holders live in a dream world” — A Rebuttal

Recently an alert reader of The Martialist alerted me to a YouTube video from the "Violence Policy Center" entitled " Proof that Concealed Carry permit holders live in a dream world." Now, right away, with a title like that, you know what you're about to view is not a reasoned argument. Claiming that someone is incorrect in their thinking or has [...]

NanoVault: Car Safe for Security, CCW Lifestyle

Recently a friend of mine made the decision to carry concealed.  After we embarked on a shopping trip to select a suitable carry pistol for him, he began to wonder if he would have to change his lifestyle somewhat.  Among other things, he wondered if his regular trips to his local pub would have to stop, as he was wondering if (by law) he was [...]

Do You Need a Light on Your Gun?

Do You Need a Light on Your Gun?

The choice to mount a light to your gun, if it has accessory rails (and sometimes even if it does not, depending on the system you use) is determined, in far too many cases, by whether or not the owner thinks the accessory is "cool."  It's a fact that you need a light for use with your firearm.  Many self-defense scenarios occur in low-light [...]

DIY Under-Desk Holster

DIY Under-Desk Holster

Under-desk holsters are a very specialized category of concealment. They aren't recommended for households or businesses where unauthorized personnel might have occasion to access the desk itself. You wouldn't mount one of these in a public office, for example, nor would you holster a gun under your desk in a home where young children live. [...]

Pocket Pistol Basics

Pocket Pistol Basics

Few weapons are as frequently misunderstood as the pocket pistol. Neither as effective as even compact pistols, nor as useless as the tiny-caliber toys with which they are sometimes grouped, the pocket pistol is a niche weapon, a specialty tool that serves best within very constrained parameters. The reason so few people understand the pocket [...]

Smith and Wesson 22-4, Reviewed by Daniel Balderas

Smith and Wesson 22-4, Reviewed by Daniel Balderas

You don’t get many do-overs in life. Second chances just don’t come around often. Recently I had the chance to buy my second first gun and I decided that, unlike last time, there would be no compromises. I would do the research and get what I wanted. Buying any firearm is a very opinionated and subjective thing, but I’m going to share with [...]

Revenge of the Fudds: Zumbo in CNY

Those of you who have read these pages since 2007 will remember my scathing commentary on Zumbo, the outdoors writer and Fudd who allowed the anti-gun lobby to make of him a useful idiot.  It seems the Fudds remain a very dangerous and powerful force within the firearms community, as evidenced by a recent banana-republic-style coup staged in the [...]

The Difference Between an “AD” and an “ND”

The Difference Between an “AD” and an “ND”

There are a lot of firearms owners out who treat their weapons far too casually, who then make lame excuses when they also make potentially life-threatening mistakes. Such dangerous, reckless, or simply indifferent gun owners have informed me, quite incorrectly, that making a distinction between an Accidental Discharge (AD) and a Negligent [...]

Roderick Scott Trial: What’s Wrong with New York?

Roderick Scott Trial: What’s Wrong with New York?

His name is Roderick Scott.  He's a 42-year-old black man with the build of a football player.  He also holds a New York State Pistol Permit, or he did until recently.  In fact, until April of this year, he kept a .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol readily to hand.  Whether that pistol has been returned to him by now, and whether he still [...]
