    Cognitive overload can certainly happen, especially with less-experienced folks. I had one experience with a rookie discharging her G22 as I pushed an unlocked door open, at a burglary-in-progress...

    I answered the poll “OWB,” but carried IWB during much of my personal time, for years, so will answer this. I used OWB for training, in order to clear leather with less effort, and, to keep from...

    Eh, AIWB an SP101, or two, and carry the big ‘un in a sling bag. ;)

    While that is a winking smile-y, I am not joking. This weapon seems to fall into the category of what some used to term...

    Perhaps some of the “cartridge conversion” type pistols, perhaps including Colts, are loaded by removing the cylinder? Even today, aren’t the mini rimfire single action revolvers reloaded by first...

    I believe it may have been Fitz, himself, in his book, who mentioned another ammo-related advantage of snub revolvers: A bullet loaded in a cartridge with an under-charge of powder, or otherwise...

    I like the way .32 H&R and .32 S&W Long ammo packs smaller; more efficient spacing for six, instead of five, in a J or SP101 cylinder, and more efficient to store, when boxed. Space-efficiency really...

    Not the same. Specifically, the reach to the trigger is not the same, and, the SRH uses the same grip frame stud as the GP100. With a GP100 grip on my SRH Alaskan, I can reach the trigger, for a...

    A protruding leather thumb-break strap can get into the trigger guard. Be sure your re-holster procedure takes this into account, and, train slowly and diligently.

    The Texas Penal Code states, pretty darn clearly, in section 46.15(a)(5), that honorably retired peace officers have the same weapon carry privileges as active LEOs. The Texas Penal Code does not...

    The very definition of “NPE” is a place with overly-zealous security personnel. I dress accordingly.

    I am no lawyer, but know that I was able to walk into a social security office, in my...

    OWB, by far, is “preferred,” by me, assuming we are talking about the primary handgun. No contest. The largest weapon I can comfortably conceal, AIWB, all day long, every day, all year, in an area...

    This is a very good product. Highly recommended. I thought I would never be able to carry a Glock double-column mag inside my trousers, ‘til I found this solution.

    Indeed, this is one advantage of a vest-of-many-pockets. I am not a daily wearer of such vests, but they are truly handy when traveling. In cooler weather, or at night, a jacket can cover the vest,...
