    The grip would catch on the right side bolster, on the seat back, as I would exit the passenger side door. The slightly shorter grip of the G19 minimized that one problem. The holster body was for a...

    This past decade, my changes have mostly been age-related. In 2011, as I closed-in on age fifty, .40 S&W, at least when fired from my high-nore-axis, aluminum-alloy-framed SIG P229 pistols, started...

    Yes, .308 Winchester has seemed to be a mostly-available cartridge, through most of 2020 and 2021. It took a while for many of the other hunting cartridges to sell-out, but, once they did sell out,...

    It eventually pays, to have a rimfire “understudy” gun, that is functionally similar to one’s carry gun. Rimfire ammo is less expensive, and, in the time time of panicdemicness, more available than...

    Sweet. But, I would pass on the protruding gold bead, as that can cause my aim to be off, to one side or the other, if that bead is side-lighted. A flush-inset gold dot, line, or block, would be...

    Not sure about when the officer was with the Houston Park Police, but, as a Houston Police Department Officer, he may well have carried .38 Special duty ammo, in his .357 revolver. Most did so; only...
