Background Check B.S.

As is the course, after every highly publicized mass killer incident, pretty much every anti-Second Amendment talking head comes out of the woodwork calling for us to “do something.” That “something” often wears the face of so-called “universal background checks.” In this post, I’m going to attempt to educate readers on the current state of background checks, and what “universal…

Why I Carry a Spare Magazine

We’re back in our “Why” series today. This is a topic that I thought of when I first conceived this blog, and it’s been a topic of conversation lately. Between a training exercise a few weeks back and several interactions with friends, it seems carrying a spare magazine is one of those large question marks in the concealed (or open)…

Don’t Live in Fear

Recently, I read an article in which some anti-gun mouthpiece asked the following; “What are you so afraid of that you feel the need to have a military-style assault rifle with a high capacity magazine next to your bed?” You could almost hear the hysteria in her voice. Ignoring the factual errors in the question (an AR-15 is neither military…

Why I Carry Hollow Point Bullets

Every once in a while, I come across an anti-gun person decrying the idea of civilians carrying hollow point bullets. They typically publicly demonstrate their ignorance of the topic by citing the Geneva Convention and it’s prohibition on using hollow point rounds in military conflicts.

Why I Train

I have decided that for me, 2017 will be the year of training.

This year, I plan on taking a number of classes. I’m not the first to suggest that if…

Why I Carry Concealed

Hopefully you’ve read my last few posts and learned why I carry a gun and why I carry it all the time, even in my home. Today, I’m going to explain why I carry said gun concealed when I’m out in public. For some people, this may not even be a topic worth addressing. When they think of a gun…

Why I Carry A Gun At Home

In the last post, I attempted to explain my thought process for carrying a gun in public. In the next post, I’m going to talk about why I carry concealed as opposed to open cary. Today however, I want to talk about why I carry a gun at home. A Man’s Home is His Castle You’ve heard that saying, I’m…

Why I Carry A Gun

Allow me to introduce myself. I am a normal, average guy. I am very much an introvert, of average height and build, middle-aged and generally pretty mellow. I am pretty confident that no one in the coffee shop where I’m writing this has taken much notice of me. I’m just a regular guy working on a computer. I’m also carrying…
