While the first annual concealed carry holster fashion show was huge hit both in person and online, it wasn’t without a huge amount of preparation.

After seven months of intense networking, organization, coordination, and with help of many of other people – it became a reality. Trish told me that she was so busy planning the event, that her husband hadn’t eaten a home-cooked meal in months.… Read the rest

5 SHOT LEATHER CUSTOM SCABBARD IWB HOLSTER REVIEW

How I came to know 5 Shot Leather:

I am sure you have heard me mention the 5 Shot Leather IWB holsters before.  When I started carrying on a daily basis, I quickly realized the importance of a good holster. My carry piece at that point was a 4 inch Kimber Pro CDPII .45 1911. I blamed the all the discomfort I was experiencing on the big gun and the inside the waistband carry method; completely unaware that it was actually the cheap $40 holster I got at Sportsman’s Warehouse that was causing the discomfort.… Read the rest

PACKING HEAT IN THE COLD WEATHER

JUST A FEW MORE REASONS BIGGER IS BETTER:

Winter is my favorite time of year to “pack heat”. First off, it is much easier to conceal a gun in the thick sweaters, layers and coats of winter; and consequentially, I can hide a bigger gun! Secondly, with all the holiday chaos and stress, people tend to go postal, and carrying a side-arm makes me feel alot more comfortable when I’m out in the middle of it. ( Anyone remember the incident in November of 2008 in NY when the Wal-Mart employee, Jdimytai Damour, 34, got trampled to death by a crowd of over 2,000 eager customers?) 

You may not know this, but the weather SHOULD be a factor when considering which firearm to carry.Read the rest

Now I have to be honest here, fanny packs are considered a viable concealed carry method.… Read the rest
