    Half an hour? Yep, SCUBA tank, a regulator, and all of the maintenance that entails. Be sure to secure the rig, so it stays in place during that collision. This project is going to require a high...

    Well, it could matter, where one gets poked, with any type of inside-the-trousers rig. Concealment may not be the only consideration. Gimpy shoulder/elbow/wrist joints, plus high-riding holsters, can...

    Of the two, I would go with the G45, though my sample pistol is the similar-dimension G19x. (I do plan to add a G45, when availability improves.) I never shot a G19 as well as a G17, and can no...

    Very typical, a “formula” street robbery. They get so close, they are giving the intended victim the “gift” of contact distance, if one is sufficiently observant. Of course, things can go south, for...

    Thanks for your response. Signing up was easy the two times I tried, in the past, except that Eventbrite failed to deliver. One event was free, so I was merely annoyed, and the other was a charitable...

    I find myself wanting to inquire if I can get the grip of an S&W Model 3913 Razor-backed. That would be something.

    I will join the anti-“hybrid” chorus. The hybrid holster is a flawed concept, at least for autos, in my opinion. The reasons are listed, plentifully, in posts that are easily found, so I will not...
  10. Long Hours, Fatigue, Making Mistakes, & Recovery

    I know that I made some truly bone-headed mistakes, when working mostly night shift patrol for 33+ years. OT shifts, court attendance, and general life events, during the daytime, sometimes meant 30+...

    I am glad to have noticed this. Thanks.

    I am concerned about Eventbrite, however, after two fails. Have you used them before, successfully?

    Didn’t some Utah feller named John Moses Browning understand this texturing, high on the grips, well over 100 years ago? ;) (Yes, I know, texturing the front straps and MSHs, and such things as...

    I wanted, so very much, to be able to carry my PD-issued X26 and then X2 Tasers in left-hand holsters, positioned for a left-hand draw, using the argument that my left hand WAS, indeed, my “strong”...

    I’d really to have a 9mm revolver, for training, simply because I started 2020 with a modest but decent supply of 9mm, and have been able to get more 9mm, throughout 2020 and into 2021. For a while,...

    I never liked the idea of the X26 and X2 Tasers being built to resemble firearms. The old, original Tasers handled more like a huge TV remote, and had a handle like a Dustbuster vacuum cleaner, or...
