I have a pair of Perry's, very clever design and quick to put on ... but for me, not the best design to help with carrying a hefty handgun as the support in back isn't near where the weight is. I...

I've had a blast on the days I haven't been dealing with migraines. Bought a motorcycle, a Honda CB500F, and enjoyed it so much I bought a Suzuki supermoto to go with it and ride the crap out of both...

Well, I hit the can when I got up this morning so I don't have enough "ammo" to participate in the ongoing pissing contest. Instead I'll try to get back to B-Rad's post.

I'll have to wait until/if it drops again, as I'm retired and income is limited. I think the NRA is missing the bet by not making this a permanent offer @ $300. First, it encourages people to become...

When I picked up my XD Tactical (sic) in .357 SIG I was at a gun show keeping an eye out for a 10mm Glock or EAA, preferably the latter as the Glock is not comfy in my hand although it's a fine...

I like the .357 SIG a lot, and yes it's a higher capacity replacement for my old wheel guns in .357 RM. Of course I've long been a big fan of the .41 RM although I don't own one at the moment. And as...

Look at the Springfield XD and see if you can't find something that fits your employer's specs. An XD Tactical in .40 S&W uses 12 round mags and carries surprisingly well for a big pistol.

And now you know one more. :) At 61 and with joint problems, the lighter bikes are a Godsend. I'll confess, though, that since I got the DR-Z400 Supermoto I've neglected my street bike (also small,...

Safariland used to make a leg holster (same general idea) that was a neoprene sleeve with a neoprene holster that was positioned just below the calf so it didn't print. You could pull your sock up...

That was in no way a "bait and wait", unless you think that just by living and having a home we are baiting criminals. I suspect your job has twisted your judgment. This is still a (somewhat) free...

"No firearms allowed" ... and on a motorcycle

Just another possibility that the anti-gunners don't consider. I went on my motorcycle to pick up an MRI disk and report, and when I got to the door I saw the dreaded sign. What to do, what to do. I...
