SHOT Show Industry Day 2015

As far as I’m concerned, it was another day at the range. My notable observations were isolated to Ruger’s LC9s, and Geissele’s AK-47 trigger. Ruger released the LC9s sometime in July 2014 and announced it’s Pro variation earlier in December 2014.  I haven’t shot either prior to this trip, so it’s new to me.  I’m aware there […]

SHOT Show 2015 Preparation

Preparation for SHOT Show?  That’s funny. I just know I’ll be there Sunday through Wednesday attending Industry Day (Yes.  I’m surprised, too), take some photos, and reunite with some friends.  Just have fun.  I’ll be back at work the next day.  Woo. I’ve read about most of the rumors and anticipate it will be relatively […]

Glock 42 – Preliminary thoughts

3rd quarter 2013, I was anticipating a single stack 9mm from GLOCK.  Imagine my disappointment when a retailer went live with their G42 accessories in December and leaked that it was a .380 ACP before GLOCK formally announced the release. GLOCK is a couple years behind, but I suppose no one was all that surprised.  […]

Dale Fricke’s Joab MagPouch

I’ve dabbled with magazine pouches for the Kahr PM9 and found I like Dale Fricke’s horizontal pouch, Joab.  I have it positioned on my left side with the bullet pointed up, at 9-10 o’clock – just behind the iliac crest.  Easy to attach on and detach from the belt.  I’m also using Fricke’s Jonathan concealment […]

Reset with Nature

After a year long hiatus from blogging, and sparse photography, hiking, and all other things I consider fun, I needed a pseudo-reset with nature. Notwithstanding personal fulfillment, the absence of nature was noticeably affecting my mood.  Lesson learned to not avoid taking personal outdoor day trips every now and then.  Work/life balance – right? Visited […]

Deep Concealment Sun Visor Holster Overview

Chase from Deep Conceal LLC, approached me to check out their line of firearm concealed carry holsters. Wasn’t quite certain what I could offer considering I’m pretty happy with my current setup, but I had a choice between their shoulder holster or sun visor holster. The shoulder holster can be described as a rib-band with […]

If you were at the races, San Francisco pride, or just elsewhere all together, then you weren’t at the Triple Aught Design and Imminent Threat Solutions Tactical social event this past weekend.
